Ostrich

Ostrich brain was considered to be a delicacy at the time of Nero.

Ostrich is a red meat that has a mild beef-like flavor and shrinks very little when cooked. It is very low in fat and cholesterol.

Heliogabalus was a Roman emperor (204-222 AD) who was known for his culinary excesses.  For one banquet he had 600 ostrich brains prepared.
