The only really weird thing I've ever eaten/drank is cow's blood fresh from the source by seconds.

I have had balut and I liked it.

I have never tried Lutefisk and it's like, the state dish or something. The smell alone was bad enough.

Gahhh

I heard of hunters doing that with deer and such, but cow blood? What prompted that?

Nothing particularly weird. A peanut butter and American cheese sandwich on white bread is the only thing that comes to mind. It's good. Like those crackers you can get from vending machines.

Whenever I go to a restaurant and they serve a weird animal, I usually get it.  The weirdest thing I've eaten is probably zebra.

I had an internship at a tech company in San Jose once.
My department consisted of me, my manager, and two other interns.

I was the only one who wasn't a tiny asian woman.
When we finished a product cycle, we'd celebrate by going out to lunch on the company's dime.

They'd always take me to Dim Sum. The kind of place where I'm the only white devil and everyone speaks a language I don't know.  The ladies had great fun in getting me to try everything.  Which was awesome because dim sum is rad.

But I've tried some weird food thanks to those girls. The worst part is I have no idea what some of it was or what it's called.

My father used to eat those. And he'd put butter on the bread before applying peanut butter.

I've had durian.  The taste is much nicer than the smell.

I was an usher in a Filipino wedding and the father of the groom got us all balut as an appetizer.  I graciously accepted the gesture and finished it.  That was going on 17 years ago and I can still taste the damned thing at times.  Ugh.

I've eaten squirrel and I love monkfish liver. Lots of raw fish at sushi places. Mmm.

I've had steamed chicken feet multiple times at a local Dim-Sum place, they're delicious and actually one of my favorite items.

I've had pan-fried grasshoppers from a high-end Mexican restaurant, they didn't taste horrible, but they were still kind of mushy and I found the texture pretty off-putting.

Every type of organ meat imaginable: heart, lung, kidneys, liver, gizzards, intestines, stomach, brain, and tongue. Obviously they're going to vary from situation to situation, but most are pretty delicious when prepared correctly. Tripas tacos, made with fried small intestine, are a personal favorite.
 
2014-03-06 03:33:35 PM
Didn't care for durian.

I've always loved lutefisk.  You don't eat it by itself, that would be foul.

Never tried balut, there was a Filipino woman that I used to work with that was going to bring it in for me to try but I didn't really push it too much.  I mean I was mildly curious but not groveling for fetal beak curious.

I have not had nor would I eat monkey brains.  I had a pork brain burrito in Chicago that about made me heave. It was way too rich, tasted like eggs with lard injected into them on the molecular level.  Not good at all.

My dad eats that sh*t and thought it would be funny to put it in our eggs when we were kids then tell us after we ate it up. Three little girls puking everywhere.

I *smelled* lutefisk once. That was enough.

I guess the weirdest thing I ate was when my sister-in-law served a pig's head for Christmas dinner. Just... the roasted head of a pig. It was still tasty but... yeah.

I've eaten shards of glass, but I don't suppose that's technically food.

I am part Norwegian and have a Norwegian surname, but the only way I'd ever eat lutefisk was if my beloved Norwegian grandfather begged me on his deathbed. And he wouldn't do that to me.

I actually found a place in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn that carries it.  It used to be the largest collection of Norwegians outside of Oslo.  Their are still a lot of Lutheran churches and parks named after Leif Ericson and stuff but all the actual Norwegians moved on.

Also, I think shipping it would constitute some sort of act of biological warfare.

Oh, and I had some haggis recently. It was actually really good. Fennelly.

I did eat duck testicles once. Tasted fine. Looked like large cannelini beans.

That's the great thing about deathbed requests- you don't have to honor them.

The Masai in Tanzania do that. They rarely kill their cattle, but they sustain themselves on cow blood and milk. Those motherfarkers are cut, too.

Human mosquitos.

I think I've had every organ meat you can eat. The only one that was really inedible to me was chitterlings. The smell alone is enough to turn your stomach and they taste worse.

Huitlacoche, also known as "Corn Smut, is pretty much just corn infected with a particular kind of fungus. It's actually really delicious when prepared properly, kind of like mushrooms.

Fried pork brains are pretty good, but a little bit goes a long way.  SUPER rich tasting.

I've eaten black bear, venison, bison, turtle, possum, raccoon, snake, groundhog, squirrel, rabbit, alligator, ummmm prolly some other stuff I dont remember.

To be honest, it was a curry dish, so I have no idea what the meat itself tastes like.

It is just a mushroom. I think we view it as gross because we called it "smut", and it offends our Protestant sensibilities to view it as food.

Nothing too unusual... I've had reindeer, whale, and puffin, and they were all great. I was really surprised by how good sea urchin is. Durian was okay, I guess. I have a tough time stomaching sweetbreads or calf's liver - they simply taste offal.

Various insects & a possible humming bird during my motorcycle-riding years.
