LOL yeah, straight away I remember the meal because it sticks in mind so much it happened about 10 years ago, a girl brought me home to do me a meal I didn't realize she had taken a shine to me and it was quite awkward, stupidly naive I was thinking it was just a meal as friends, I valued her friendship nothing more oh well. Anyhow she cooked me a bolognaise but it was seafood! Unusual I know I forgot to ask what the main ingredient was until I put a piece in my mouth, I wanted to spit it out but decorum prevented that I found out it was squid! YUK! Never ever again, tasted like rubber, I left most of it, I think I hurt her feelings but I just couldn't touch it after the initial bite. eeeeeeekkkkkk

You can say that again, I don't think we'll ever understand the complexity of the human race!

Kimchi ranks way up there as an unusual tasting food... When I was reading this I remembered when I drank a glass of milk and thought it was a soda and the reaction my brain gave me... like it was poison or something! Heh... anyways great post Thanks Zelo

Kimchi is Korean yes... it is cabbage that is fermented (rots) under the ground and then is dug back up and eaten... a very... unusual taste. Thanks Zelo

Yes. I bit into a raw persimmon thinking it would have a sweet tatse but it didn't. I will never do that again. It was very tart and sour and nasty.

This was a ripe one but I just don't like persimmons at all. You can cook them and add sugar to them but I still don't like it.

Caviar - Seven different types of caviar (source: wikipedia)
I've often tasted vegetables by accident and decided never again. What awful things they are and soooooooo healthy for you, what's that about? LOL I'm just kidding but that's the sort of answer I would have given had I still been 15 or so! Nowadays I am less fussy about eating healthy things but there are still quite a few things that I wouldn't touch with a bargepole. I tasted caviar once at a work party not because I particularly wanted to try what is basically fish eggs but because I had heard it was a delicacy from so many people and because it's so expensive I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Well I have to say, it was the most vile thing I ever recall tasting and I had to make a quick exit to the toilets to spit it down the pan and flush that nasty stuff away. I guess it must be an acquired taste or maybe I'm just without class because it's not something I ever plan on trying again no matter how rich I ever get or what posh parties I ever have to attend!

Caviar - Looks so tempting.Isn't it?
Thanks for making me reminisce my exerience.I have been reading about this caviar thing in the paper backs and always considered it as a delicacy and very expensive and is for the exclusive elite.I searched for the meaning of the caviar and found out that it is fish eggs and vowed to try it one day. But Anonymili Now I have become more inquisitive in a totally different way.lol

My mother use to make oyster stew. It was thin like soup. She would make it about once every two weeks because my father just loved it. It was nasty and I've never eaten oysters of any kind again.

I accidentally ate raw mackerel. I love sushi and my friend and I were sharing a platter and I wasn't paying attention to what roll I was picking up. I was going for the Japanese Bagel and ended up with just a piece of mackerel draped over rice that had asparagus and mint leaves in it. Since we were in a restaurant I couldn't just spit it out so I was forced to swallow it. But never ever again will I ever eat off the same plate as someone who ordered mackerel. Yuck!
