Tongue!

In this week's Parasha of Va-yera, Avraham serves food to 3 individuals who may be men, may be angels, or according to the Ramban, something in between. Rashi tells us that he served them tongue with mustard. (Someone has got to explain to me where he gets that.) Since this event is said to have taken place on Pesah, the Hatam Sofer would eat tongue on Pesah, substituting horseradish for mustard which is kitnoyot.
