I have been to a couple of Shanghai restaurants in NY serving something they call "Duck Tongue," but which has bones in it. My wife thinks they are really sparrow necks, which do have bones, and asserts that duck tongues have no bones. My theory is that the restaurateurs call this dish "duck tongue" because it's name in something like Dok Tong, and so it sort of sounds like duck tongue. And that they stick with that because Duck Tongue sounds more appetizing than whatever "Duck Tongue" _really_ is.
Re: Do ducks have tongues? Is that really what duck tongue is in Chinese rest?
