Would you try katakat — a blend of minced kidneys, brains and other organ meat?

Perhaps a few photos will whet your appetite. GlobalPost's writer in Pakistan, Mariya Karimjee, took us up close during a Friday night at Karachi's famous Noorani Restaurant, known for its version of the chopped, cooked offal.

Among the fun facts she shared? The name "katakat" comes from the sound made when prepping the dish, as two sharp blades hit the griddle to cut up the meat.
