I get this visual of the scene in INDIANA JONES where they served the monkey brains and a side dish of eyeballs.

...And for desert.... Egyptian Vulture, Bearded Vulture,(not be confused with bearded clam)... Wild Ass, not much unlike tamed Ass (however tame ass does not have the gammy taste)....

And small rodents....

All served with sherbet, and whipped cream..........or with Vanilla ice cream....

Hopefully mumia will not be on the menu of those animators of cuisine in the land of necropoli.

Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed
Shadows paintin' our faces
Traces of romance in our heads

Heaven's holdin' a half-moon
Shinin' just for us
Let's slip off to a sand dune, real soon
And kick up a little dust

Come on, Cactus is our friend
He'll point out the way
Come on,'til the evenin' ends
'Til the evenin' ends

You don't have to answer
There's no need to speak
I'll be your belly dancer, prancer
And you can be my sheik

[Instrumental Interlude]

I know your Daddy's a sultan
A nomad known to all
With fifty girls to attend him, they all send him
Jump at his beck and call

But you won't need no harem, honey
When I'm by your side
And you won't need no camel, no no
When I take you for a ride

Come on, Cactus is our friend
He'll point out the way
Come on,'til the evenin' ends
'Til the evenin' ends

Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed
Got shadows paintin' our faces
And traces of romance in our heads

Oh, come on...
