It's a 'blood' product.
Where I live there is dog. It's not really mainstream [it's not halal for a start, and one or two of the best places sell pork too] and I don't eat it particularly often. But when I do, there is a choice - the dog comes 'wet' in a blood sauce, like a little plate of curry - although it's not curry - it's gamey like kangaroo, or some kinds of horse meat; peppery, 'hot', but not chili hot. And the pork comes the same way, if you want [with more soy sauce mixed in with the blood], but also thee is a 'dry' version - roasted - a little bit of the porky scratchings thing going on, with the blood sauce in a little dish on the side, along side the pureed cassava leaves, and basket of rice. Very non-Muslim, I must say.
