Exotic food sounds interesting, challenging and sometimes undesirable...but lots of people love to eat it...how about you? What exotic food have you tried?

Hello. I guess it would be "Balot" for me. It's from the Philippines. Unhatched boiled chick, not egg. :)

Hello! How do you find Balot? I'm also from the Philippines, but still I don't dare to eat it. ^^

I used to eat balot. It tasted yummy, as far as my childhood tastebuds are concerned. But now, hmmmm, since i my mouth crunched on a foul smelling, hairy, and almost adult chick (yuuuucks!!!), i could no longer dare to eat balot again. It happened two years ago. But my mouth still water remembering the original smell, and taste of the "soup" inside the balot. So i still eat, Balot Pinoy (or is that pronounced as "penoy"?). It's protein rich, you know.

Balot penoy/pinoy really tastes good, I can't dare to eat the cooked chick.^^ The former one on the other hand is my favorite, I must admit that there are times when I really crave for penoy in the middle of the night. Thanks for the response.

I think the most exotic food is I ate is BRAIN - PIGS BRAIN. It goes with porridge. I guess intestines are exotic too. Well not sure, what do you think? I dont know what else but liver, chicken feet, chicken head is the other parts of animals that people here eats.

Jannalee, your from the Phlippines too. Really, you have not tried it? It goes with lugaw. Its like as soft as tofu, well not the fried one. It's really good. Especially when you put calamansi and patis. It's rarely sold here now, but its really good with lugaw.
