(WFTS) A small south Tampa restaurant is causing quite a stir over a unique item offered on their menu: lion.
For $35 dollars taco lovers can try lion, as in, the king of the jungle.
"I thought the lion was good," said patron Lee Weiner. "It didn't taste too gamey to me, similar to steak."
Since Taco Fusion opened in February they have built a reputation for their unconventional taco filings. They have previously offered game like beaver and otter, but the controversy didn't start until lion meat made it's way onto their menu.
