What exotic food have you tried? I am from Malaysia and asian love our Durian, some people really cant stand the smell, personally i love Durian, but i dont like to eat it so much coz it make my body heat increase and i feel hot. I love the smell and i have no problem with it. I think Durian is still acceptable . Some people eat even more weird food like scorpion, monkey brain , snake etc. I have tried eating grasshoper 7 years ago. it taste nice too like prawn, i went to these villages in jungle for work visit and i try it coz they seem to enjoy it so much and im so curious. that was the only time i ever try eating eat haha.. What about you? have any exotic food experience you have tried. Really curious to know how it feels like eating weird stuff.. peace!

I am from Philippines and we have so manyexotic foods here. What I had tried eating is farm frogs and crickets. Take note that it is farm frog because bull frogs have poison. It tastes delicious.

I already try to eat Durian but really can't take its smell.Some of exotic foods to try here in the Philippines are frogs, tamilok, worms,crickets and other kinds of exotic foods that I haven't try to eat and I guess will never try to eat cause I'm not into eating exotic foods like that.Some people like and love to eat exotic foods.
