We Solve Traver Rains's Testicle Troubles

So designer Traver Rains of Heatherette can’t get cow balls here in New York? Well, why didn’t he ask us? Not that we are enthusiasts of the crinkly treats; the things have little taste and the gnarliest of textures (think of calves brains, but chewier). However, if the famished designer really wants them, they can be had. Ali frequently serves the dish at Astoria’s Kebab Café, and we’ve heard that they can be found occasionally at Kenka, the East Village izakaya that seems to specialize in weird bits and pieces. The ultimate place for this kind of thing, though, is probably A Fan Ti, a Flushing restaurant that has every part of the lamb and goat from the eyes to the oysters. As for the traditional Wild West breaded prairie oyster? That still hasn’t come to New York. Maybe a profitable new sideline for Heatherette?
