casey.lurvs.bacon: OH, pigs feet and dayum, what was that stuff, you basically boil a hogs head for days until it's mush, then strain the mush from the liquid. Head cheese maybe?

Head cheese maybe?Pig's feet are amazing for making a soup base. I use them in my Pozole, and they make the stock unbelievably rich and flavorful.
MooseUpNorth: Nothing too exotic. I've had snails (escargot). I've had sashimi and sushi (in the west, not in Asia, so the bucket list entries have a * next to them). Liked 'em all. I had some sort of Asian pasta that looked like angel hair pasta, but had the consistency and give of fiber optic line that I couldn't deal with. I've had moose a few times, but never bear nor venison.Best slightly strange thing I've had involved a really yummy salsa (a pale, leaning pinkish, red color) made from some cactus flower at a restaurant in Tucson, AZ. I'm sure some farker will be along shortly to fill in the name.
Glockenspiel Hero: Various sushi bits like raw octopus, sea urchin and assorted fish eggs. Like the taste of the octopus but I won't eat it anymore since I learned how intelligent they are.The grocery store near me back in California had ostrich steaks. I loved those once I realized you had to tenderize the hell out of them.
hillbillypharmacist: I've had durian. The taste is much nicer than the smell.
PolloDiablo: 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.[4.bp.blogspot.com image 600x398]

mcsiegs: I worked in a deli in high school and damn how many people ordered HEAD CHEESE.I have eaten squirrel.
