I've always loved to try new and 'strange' types of foods whenever available. I say the most different type of food I've tried was probably Crocodile?! I've also tried Ostrich and Antelope which at the time I thought were CRAZY. I got the idea for this forum when I was watching I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here, eating worms and grubs...yummm
So What would you consider the most different/strange/exotic/unusual type of food you've eaten before?
brains - served up my my mother when I was a kid. They were crumbed and were fried, and were white & tasted like chicken - called sweetbreads. Of course, I was turned off when I found out what it really was. I didn't eat the ox-tongue she served up - I could see the tastebuds
I ate dog once, while in Asia. I was forced to do it, to be polite. Luckily, it was dredged in a thick mixture of some type of ground hot peppers and soy sauce, so it was so hot it kept my mind off of what I was eating.
My mom used to cook lambs testicles sometimes. She would bread them and deep fry. They taste just like brains. Delicious.
I have eaten Camel meat in Morocco, and i love it. Also i was once ofered goat's eyes as a special treat, while visiting some Berber friends in their village in Morocco. They are crunchy and rubbery, similar to octopus but harder to chew.
In Taiwan, every newcomer is kind of forced to try -at least once- "stinky tofu". Locals love it, but the stench is so strong that it turns you off from far away if there is a vendor selling it. The taste is fine, but the smell is atrocious. Yuck.
I have had goat at this really swell Indian place here in Milwaukee..i couldn't believe how delish it was!! I have also had: shark, chocolate covered crickets, ostrich, "rocky mountain oysters" (bull testicles) chicken feet, cow's tongue, many types of sushi, bear, buffalo, seaweed, exotic fruits, kidneys (didn't like the texture AT ALL!!) and that's about it! I'm pretty adventurous!
...macdonalds was pretty darn strange...tried a 'burg a long time ago...not sure what it contained...don't want to know either....sorry silly ole' Ronald McD with the silly smile...ooooh and the stench is out of this world...
Hmmm, in my case it was not so much tried but left. I am British but moved to Japan with my Japanese wife and two young children last September.
I knew for that Christmas I was not going to have the conventional turkey and brussel sprouts. However, what I was faced with was bloated fish which had split whilst cooking to reveal its undeveloped eggs and it was served like that and this is enjoyed by many Japanese but alas not this Englishman.
That must've been quite a sight. I don't think I'm familiar with that particular dish even though my mother is Japanese and I've visited Japan multiple times. I hope you have found other enjoyable things in Japan as they do, in my opinion, create some great dishes there.
The most unusual were some chewy alligator pieces I sampled at an Australian restaurant once. They tasted alright as they were battered and apparently deep-friend but quite chewy. I wasn't totally impressed but I hear (and see on this hub) that alligator can be quite tasty.
To be frank if I was presented with that fish now though it may not be desirable I would probably eat it, as fresh fish is becoming very rare during the earthquake crisis. Where there is need, there is no option.
Where I come from it's very hard to eat certain foods or you would become an outcast, so the most exotic foods that I've tried without losing family and friends are (1)octopus, (2)eel, (3)turtle, (4) conk, (5)a shrub we call Spanish Needles that is only eaten by animals
Oh I just remembered, my mom gave me shark once - loved that!
We had a shop here that sold alligator and kangaroo meat - I couldn't possibly ... I dared to try a frog's leg once, and found it revolting. Okay, it was like very tender chicken - and I love chicken - but that almost transparent, needle thin little frog bone that was left. No ...
What is the most exotic food you have tasted...here in the philippines I ate balut/balot (a fertilized duck egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell). And these are the following...
We've all got different bodies and different tastes... some women are most comfortable in lightweight bras with no wires, while others prefer something with more support.For the most part I can't stand underwire bras,...
Received a few e-mails from followers that they were unable to post a comment to my latest Hub? When I look at the Hub everything appears to be normal but not one comment has been posted, which is unusual? ...
