Cooked, salted or dried, field mice strung on sticks are sold as a popular delicacy in Malawi markets and roadside stalls.
The mice are hunted in corn fields after the harvest when they have grown plump on a diet of grains, fruits, grass and the odd insect.
The most widely eaten species is known locally as Kapuku, gray in color and with a shorter tail than the more common rat.
Now, Larry Madowo has had a taste of this local delicacy and lived to tell about it.
He asks, “Should I eat the head as well?” cutting off a chunk of the rat on a stick.
Here are reaction by Kenyans.

I ate a mouse 🐁 for the first time and it was, well, amazing! Mice (not rats!) are a delicacy among the Chewa of central Malawi. I will eat anything and I had to try these. They’re eaten whole with the skin and everything. Tastes just like chicken 😉 #wanderlust #goeverywhere #eateverything
