He was hit on the highway, and I stopped and cut out his heart. It’s actually not that gross, but my dad was kind of disgusted.

Live baby prawns are mixed up with a spicy sauce, noodles and vegetables and served immediately. It’s not easy keeping the prawns on your spoon as they are jumping all over the place. I can’t say that it tastes that nice either.

Sea urchin sushi is as far as I’ve gone. (Ain’t it grand to be Irish!)

Visiting my grand parents in Managua my cousins tricked me into eating armadillo and iguana, which they wouldn’t touch. They’re actually delicious. I also found out I’m allergic to ants by eating them dipped in chocolate in southern mexico… let’s see… I’ve also tried a variety of insects traveling through mexico, like maguey worms (they taste like butter and nuts), crickets (amazingly lemonny) and ant larvae (nutty, too)…. oooo and let’s not forget river crabs. They’re called alcauciles here, and are pretty much the missing linkbetween the cockroach and the softshell crab….

I guess it’s better to try this shit and actually have some evidence before stating an opinion

You only live once!

Ps…. rattlesnake in northern mexican mountains is also great

I just wanted to add a few more weird Korean foods:

1) Silkworm larva. They’re boiled in a big pot, and their odor is one thing I can count on to gross out any and all of my friends who come visit.

2) Sparrow. Yes, as in the little bird. I think it’s much less common now than it was in the past. You’re supposed to just crunch through the whole thing, although the head was left out of the eating in my group.

3) Cow or pig intestines. It’s normally fried on a pan at your table.

4) As aforementioned, chicken cast-offs. I’d like to add chicken gullets, simply because the Korean name threw me off the first time. Literally translated, it’s something like “poop house”.

And as an aside, is it an East Asian thing to believe in certain foods as “good for your skin”? Impossible beauty marketing seems to thrive in Korea. Example? “Drink this corn husk tea! It’ll give you cheekbones/melt away chipmunk cheeks!” (Rough translation as they actually like to use the term “V-line”.)

Hashima and ‘bird’s nest’ aka swallow spit = I .. actually quite like those. The items themselves are tasteless, its the broth/syrup whatever that I like. I never knew what Hashima was, and when I did – I just let it process in my mind, and carried on eating.

Dried Fish Floating Bladder – Love this in the steamboat – chicken stock, cabbage, fishballs, meatball, mushrooms, sea cucumber and the fish floater. Yum.
Yesh – I love sea cucumber as well.
