The Greatest Meal of Action Bronson’s Life Involved a Baby Turtle and Smoked Snake

Action Bronson’s palate is nearly as renowned as his goofy free-associative rhymes, so it’s no surprise that when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, the fellow foodie host would ask him about grub.

At Kimmel’s request, the Queens-bred rapper described the best meal he’s ever had, which he enjoyed at Les Créations de Narisawa in Tokyo. It included both a soft-shell baby turtle (“I’m sorry … I love baby turtles”) and a smoked rattlesnake (“Tasted like a very rich beef broth”). Watch it below, with bonus stories about stealing TVs and the time Action got fired from his old job working in the New York Mets commissary kitchen.
