Halli: Odin's Other Eye: Halli: [www.mightysweet.com image 640x426]Frequently eaten during my youth. I've also had seal flippers and rotten shark.Oh yes. Smalahove or svid? If you have eaten rotten shark, I'm betting on the Icelandic variant.Svið is correct. Yes it was the Icelandic kind. The worst Icelandic food I haven't actually tried. Rotten stingray which is usually only eaten on the 23rd of December. The smell is so bad that most apartment buildings ban residents from cooking it.
MBooda: lobster curry in Colombo, Sri Lanka
Odin's Other Eye: MRE Omlet
DGS: unremarkable asterisk: DGS: Timanous: The only really weird thing I've ever eaten/drank is cow's blood fresh from the source by seconds.I heard of hunters doing that with deer and such, but cow blood? What prompted that?he hunts cowsWily creatures, those. Sneaky. Like ninja.
whistleridge: phenn: whistleridge: At least Peace Corps gives you good stories and pictures?I'd contribute a case of beer to hearing some of the stories you have to tell. I've always held Peace Corps volunteers in high regard. You must have some doosies.Um...my neighbors killed and ate my dog? And when I asked where she went, they said 'oh, we saved the best part for you' and then offered me her neck?Hippo is disgusting and fatty? Crocodile is yummy? Camel, goat, sheep, horse, donkey, and antelope all taste about the same?Oh! Sad story:A friend of mine was at site when her family brought back a basket of what she thought was Durian. She asked if it was edible. They looked at her, shrugged, picked one up, and flung it super hard on the ground.Then she realized it was a hedgehog. And she was expected to eat it. She said it was all connective and made her sick for days.
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]
ChipNASA: Odin's Other Eye: MRE OmletThe Canadian one apparently. *HURK*
daemon1326: Pigeon, Fish Eyes, Pig Intestines, Chicken feet, Stinky Tofu(horrid stuff, tastes like old gym socks) Pickled Deer Heart. And I'm pretty sure that in some back alley joint in Kowloon, I may have eaten dog.
Mystery Vortex: I'd say the strangest thing for me by far was a century egg. It's a chicken, duck or quail egg that's buried in quicklime, rice hulls, salt, and buried for a few months. The white turns into a firm brown jelly and the yolk becomes greenish black and creamy in texture. The taste is really not that bad. It tastes a lot like the yolk mixture put into deviled eggs, just a bit more pungent. It's the colour and texture that are the turn offs. The white gets a texture like that nasty skin that jello gets.
PolloDiablo: valanienna: Is anyone else more bothered by bad texture than bad taste?I can't think of a single food that I find disgusting due to flavor alone, but weird textures really really skeez me out. I have trouble with anything that's seems unnaturally smooth and creamy.
ds615: Former sister-in-law was from Norway, she made Lutefisk for us once.While I found it fascinating, it was not good.So I smooshed it together with my potatoes to get it down. Turns out, that's how a lot of people eat it.I think I'll be just fine without ever having it again, thanks.
RexTalionis: Theaetetus: I was really surprised by how good sea urchin is.I've heard so many people talk about how good sea urchin is, but I was largely underwhelmed by the taste of it.

Dangl1ng: RexTalionis: Theaetetus: I was really surprised by how good sea urchin is.I've heard so many people talk about how good sea urchin is, but I was largely underwhelmed by the taste of it.Depends where you get it. Here in the United States, it's usually frozen and the defrosted and put on sushi (I think.) In Chile, it's fresh and put into a soup. So effin good.
Soup4Bonnie: Had balut two days ago. Good stuff.img.fark.net
shanteyman: Soft crabs and raw oysters; love 'em both.
Saborlas: Chicago deep dish "pizza."*runs*
orezona: A girl on the rag.What?
Hollie Maea: Probably the rarest thing I have eaten is Pandanus Coinodeus (anyone else ever had it?). It is so rich it makes your throat itch.
