Buffalo is a reasonable healthy alternative to beef when making burgers, though ostrich meat is even healthier and tastes a lot better in my opinion, too.

Ostrich is great, first time I had it was at a restaurant, and they asked how I would like it done. I was surprised because I was expecting something more like chicken or turkey. But it's actually red meat, and what I got was more like a steak. not what I expected but definitely a good meal, I've had it a few times since then.

I only knew Hassenpfeffer due to the Looney Tunes Episode. In case you do not remember, Yosemite Sam is a chef to German king sick of his meals and wants Hassenpfeffer. When Yosemite sees the ingredients, he sees a RABBIT as one of the ingredients, and Bugs Bunny fits the bill. The rest is just Bugs Bunny outsmarting him.

That was why they were first domesticated. I don't imagine you get much meat off them, but there are plenty of them in Peru, so it's probably quite a good source of meat.

Theirs are really big IIRC, so my guess you get about the same type and amount of meat as if you were eating rabbit (i.e. less than on a chicken, and drier meat too)

Hamburgers can be made from many different types of meat, including beef, pork, turkey, and even veggie. I recommend that you change the food to steak to make it more specific.

Hashi is Arabic for camel meat. Very popular in Saudi Arabia: hashi kabsa.

I've also eaten whale bacon in Japan. Not sure what the Japanese name for it is.

Bacon is "Beekon". Anglicized word in entirety (spelled in katakana, there's no kanji or hiragana of it) since the Japanese didn't traditionally eat pork products for most of their history. Whale in Japanese is kujira, so I'm guessing it would be something like "beekon no kujira".

Cow would be an answer for dairy products. For hamburger cattle or oxen is more appropriate. Beef most often comes from steers as the cows are needed to produce more calves.

Most hamburger in fact does come from old cows, often mixed in with fat or trimmings from fat steers to get the fat/protein proportions right
