It's no secret around B-town that if your tongue likes the taste of tongue then Saturday at Bar Gernika is the place to be. Now the whole tongue-lovin' world knows about it, thanks to the Food Network's Guy Fieri. When he trekked through Boise on a food frenzy at local restaurants, Fieri was obviously put off by the weekly tongue fest at Bar G. (Face it, Fieri, who's used to the tamer cuisine of the good ole U.S. of A. is no Anthony Bourdain when it comes to organ meats.) Fieri conceded that the tongue was delicious, but what he really wanted was a spicy lamb grinder. Served sliced and fried in a "tongue marinara," the dish is a tradition at Gernika. If you ask us, it's the best place in town to get your tongue on.
