what's the most bizarre food that you ever ate?

March 19, 2017 8:14pm CST
now there are a lot of bizarre food from where im from, but "balut" or duck embryo will be the most bizarre of them that i ever tried. it is delicious, no doubt about that, but it's high in calories, so not very hypertensive friendly. but when i get to some parts of thailand, im sure i wont be trying fried spiders. that one is off the hook.

Bizarre can depend on our culture. I have eaten several sorts of meat that are not usual in my country. Among them I have eaten the delicious Guinea Pig in Perú. Some seafood are not common elsewhere. I love octopus, sea urchins and some seaweed that belongs to our seas.

I have had a pet guinea pig and am not sure I would like to eat one.

Whats strange or bizarre to someone can actually be normal to other people. Like when you mentioned "balut" this can be a normal food for Filipinos but an exotic one to foreigners. In fact, so exotic that it is often considered a food challenge or unique experience for our foreign visitors from our company while having a business trip in Philippines. We also let them try "Dinuguan" also known as Pork blood stew, and they often love it better than "balut".

I have never had "Dinuguan" but after checking, I think I´d like it as I love all sorts of blood dishes.

@marguicha, its actually good and unique flavor. Although it's the only blood dish that I know. What are the other blood dishes that you had?

No such thing as "bizarre" when it comes to food. Its a cultural thing man. Food is part of one's culture. No culture is superior or lower than any other culture. All culture are equal; same as in the matter of food.

Absolutely. Food is food, and it might take different forms depending on where you live.

The bizarre food I have tried that I didn't like is "uni" which is sea urchin. To me, it tastes like gelled seawater. Yuck! However, I love octopus and dried squid which some people might consider bizarre.

I love sea urchins. I prefer them on an omeletter though as they are not so strong. Just an egg, a lot of urchins and lemon juice. I love octopus and squid too.

That's really a tricky question (depends on culture).

Strange food varies from one country to another. I love "balut" but never engulf the chick.lol
