on the road: I like bitter melon and daikon, and cook with them sometimes.

A good steak tartare is amazing.

Speaking of uncooked beef dishes, gored gored is awesome with injera.

Szechuan pepper with shredded tripe.  Really tasty.  The weird part was I had it in Madison, Wisconsin.

Yeah, not exactly chilled monkey brains level of weird, but for a guy who grew up where Taco Bell was considered ethnic food...

Gisheed (or Jisheed).
Shark Casserole.

Seriously, there is no other way to describe the way it looks (it might be fried in the pan though, I'm not sure.
It's a traditional dish in the Arabian Gulf states.
They grind the shark whole, cook with fried onions and sun-dried limes.

A quick search pulled up a LOT of shark recipes but not the one I was looking for.
(Admittedly I didn't go past the first page).

Hey, you asked for weird.

Some of you military Farkers who were stationed in the Gulf might have tried it.

There is also Saudi or Yemeni dish where they have special BBQ stoves that has two levels. They put the meat on the top level, cook the rice on the lower level and let all the juices dripping from the meat cover the rice.

I think your cholesterol level went up just reading that.

I remember eating fish-bits pizza in Japan, w/small white bits of fish that looked like parmesan cheese

/much preferred their curry egg breakfast buns

MalyKvetos: Leberkaese in a bulkie roll with spicy mustard


Not weird at all...incredibly awesome with a cold one. We called them brotchen rolls tho

Pizza burgers were standard fare for middle school lunches.
Served open face - hamburger bun topped with crumbled burger, draped with spaghetti sauce, topped with processed cheese food. (is it still proper to call this 'welfare cheese'?)

Sloppy Joes were near the same - except they would grind up leftovers, mix it with the burger, add a dash of barbeque sauce, add a slice of processed cheese

hubiestubert: Japanese pizza is just weird. It's just weird, and you can blame MacArthur and his transitional period for it, because folks were trying to find something for Americans to eat while they were kicking back on their downtime, and then the locals got into it, and it just got strange.



"Care for some extra Mayo, on your Mayo, Potato, and Shrimp Pizza?"     Blech!  I'll never understand their obsession with mayo (even if their Mayo is better than ours, that ain't saying much).

syzygy whizz: Okinomiyaki (hope I spelled that right)...
Or is that the thing you do with eggs?


You thinking about Omuraisu, or Tamagoomu?  Okinomiyaki has a cabbage and batter base.  Oh, and Okinomiyaki and takoyaki are like crack (hold the mayo, please).

You want weird, eat Cantonese or any other ethnic chinese dish. Stinky Dofu, Pissing Prawns, octopus braised in it's own ink, etc...    All Tasty (except stinky dofu), but definitely not for the more delicate American palates. The only one I've encountered that I can't abide is Bitter Melon Soup. I don't care if it's supposed to cool you down, I'll stick with ice water, thanks.


So wish MOS Burger would open up shops in the States. Could give Five Guys a run for their money.

Had that in Upstate SC. I worked in a Chinese-American restaurant for almost 10 years. Eating with the cooks 3 times a day, really opened my eyes to the wide variety of dishes, flavours, and textures. I credit that with my iron-gut ability to try as many cuisines from around the world as possible, and opened my eyes to Korean, Japanese, Thai, Malay, Indian, and Pakistani foods.

How do they get the urea flavour out of the meat? Soak it in buttermilk, or salted water, like some of the game animals around here, to combat gaminess?

Speaking of, Properly soaked skate wings, breaded and fried, and served with beer is the shiznet!

Tempura burger anyone?

NorthernMT: Not really weird or foreign, but I'm partial to the Doner Kebap and Lahmacun, that you find in the little street side shops in Germany.  Just hold the Tzatziki.

Unfortunately I don't know of anywhere in my entire state that serves them.


No gyros places nearby?

Never had gyros but I'm pretty sure some of my local kebab shops are Greek run. Doner just has a much bigger "brand recognition", as it were, than gyros so it's much more likely that Greeks setting up shop here (UK) would just call it doner.

/Doner pizzas, doner and chips. Om nom nom.

Coming back from Scotland on New Years Day on British Airways, the breakfast was a broiled tomato and a whole smoked eel.  I mean whole, with the head looking up at my hungover self.  About 8 inches of freaky smoked fish looking shocked at me.  That was not the right way to start a long flight.

Eel.  The penis of fishes.

Oooh, sun-dried limes! I've never cooked with those, will have to try.

And the drippings in the rice sounds fabulous :-D

Squid jerky doesn't last even a couple of hours when I buy it, I demolish the shiat that quick. I LOVE the stuff!
Thinking of getting some dried silkworms from the oriental market as well.

Did a couple tours of duty in Sinai. I made friends with local ladies who treated me to roasted goat with trimmings.
They ground their chick peas by hand for hummus and made flatbread on big stones they heated with charcoal...then pulled the coals back over the top of the bread.
Those days are long gone. Now almost everyone in Sinai has electric or propane stoves, and refrigeration. No fresh warm goat milk anymore.

Kevin72: Kinetic King: Last Fall, I had kangaroo meat in a Chinese restaurant in Essen, Germany.  Y'know, some of that Australian-Chinese-German fusion cuisine :)

They fooled you again. it was probably some Austrian game mammal but they called it Australian.


I don't think it was Austrian kängäröö, but good ol' Australian kangaroo.  Unless the kitchen ran out of umlauts...

I believe you. just playing around with the old Austria joke. And the umlauts prove it was real. Thailand had the fake exotic meat scam going for a while.

WordsnCollision: My favorite weird international cuisine? Eggs boiled in the urine of pre-pubescent boys, a traditional delicacy from Dongyang, China, served from street kiosks in springtime.

[inventorspot.com image 574x384]

/They collect the pee from area elementary schools.
//No I haven't tried it, would you??
///hot


Yeah, sure it was from Dongyang. But I had heard of such delicacy in China. Not that it couldn't have that name.

Not weird, but it's difficult to find correctly formulated mushy peas here in SF. You can't just put fresh or frozen peas through a blender; there's an involved process to it that I will probably never master.

They're easy to find when I'm in Australia, though,

And I also miss that chocolaty dessert cup thing from Nando's.

Yes, gravy on fries is weird.  I grew up in North Carolina, we did not put gravy on fries.

Ketchup, mustard, cheese, chili... those were acceptable toppings for fries.  Not gravy.

I like soba noodles, cold, with a spicy dipping sauce.

DigitalCoffee: Pizza burger? I think the word you are looking for is okonomiyaki.

/hold the mayo


Hold the fish flakes for me (Osaka style?)

I spent a lot of time in the South growing up. Gravy fries ain't weird Old Son. Maybe more the purview of Yankees and the Flatlander Mid-West, but gravy fries is what happens when you have gravy, fries, and cheese handy. Cripes, in the South, gravy goes on every damn thing from biscuits to breaded fried steaks...

Then again, if you come from North Carolina, I would posit that your views on "weirdness" with food was perhaps colored by the abomination that y'all call "BBQ"...

Bulgogi tacos, bulgogi pizza topped with ranch and hot sauce, butter chicken pizza. I love fusion dishes done right. Also soft tendon phone.

We are trying to learn to cook a bit of Chinese and Thai, and when I went to the Asian market today, I picked up some of that based on your photo and description (the hot variety though). It smells funky but tastes mild, is a tad sweet, and really is not hot. I don't know that I will love it as a snack, but I think it's going to be FANTASTIC in some sort of cooked application. Thank you!
