Reader: Andrew Zimmern's palate has been tarnished by undercooked testicles

When Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods, listed the "Best Ethnic Food in the U.S." for Food & Wine, he lauded Denver for its Den-Mex -- gravy-like green chile in general, and the variations served at Chubby's and El Taco de Mexico, especially when accompanied by anything else from El Taco.

Many readers aren't fans of Zimmern's choices -- or of Zimmern himself.

Says Clayton Graham:

Zimmern's palate has been tarnished by the likes of exotic peppers and undercooked testicles. Denver is an amazing farm to table city with progressive cultures inspired to eat "clean". The Sonoran southwest is undoubtedly America's best Mexican and South American food representation.
