What is the most strange or weird food or bugs and animals you ever ate?

One day, I broke open a Mexican jumping bean and there was some type of larve grub thing in the bean. It looked kinda like a maggot.

I thought "Oh, this is the thing that makes the bean jump."

Then, for reasons I dont know, I wanted to taste the little larve. It was plump and for some reason to me, it looked tasty.

So i said " What the hell?" And I put the little larve thing in my mouth and started chewing it.

It tasted like an almond.

Lol.

Might not be weird to some people, but to everyone else I have told, they are somewhat shocked.

Horse Bavette Steak and Horse Tenderloin.

It was AMAZING. Tried it raw as well...melted like butter in my mouth. 1000 times more tender than beef and 100 times tastier!

I would take horse steak over beef any day.

EDIT: bone marrow... a beef femur split down the middle, seasoned and roasted. it was kinda like meat jelly.

strange to most of you, not strange to me:

- Tripas (beef intestine stir fried in a wok, seasoned and served like fajitas
- Menudo (beef stomach in a chile powder broth, with hominey)
- home made chorizo. that is basically where all the itty bitty bits end up when you are finishing up the hog slaughter
- Offal. I love bone marrow. Beef shanks slow roasted, seasoned with salt and pepper. Scoop the marrow into a baby portabella mushroom, sprinkle with salt and chives, and continued roasting covered until the mushrooms are cooked. The next time you have a big ol' ham bone, dig in.

I eat all that too.

When you make menudo, do you add all the extras? Like lime or lemon, cabbage, cilantro, oregano, fresh onions? Or do you eat it straight?

I put extra red chile in mine.

Just asking how different it is in Texas compared to New Mexico.

Cactus, when I was down in Antigua on a dig we ate a lot of cactus in various ways, pickled, fried, raw, it was always different.

Tripe, cow stomach, had it with some sort of Korean BBQ sauce, and an Italian way, it was all pretty good actually.

And the weirdest, would have to be deep fried snake skeleton, yup... when I went to the Philippines with some friends of mine we made a stop over in Vietnam, it was for about a day and one of the guys we were traveling with just happened to know a 'great place!' to eat, yea, it was insane in western standards.

Cold soup.

You take a bunch of chicken feet and boil them. Then you take the whole thing, liquid included and put it in the fridge overnight to cool/thicken. You end up with cooked chicken feet in this clear jello-like stuff.

It was Eastern Europe...

Menudo...I heard it's good for a hangover, never tried it for that. I had it out of a can once and it was pretty good.

I ate live beetles and ants. I don't suggest doing it. They tickle the throat. Also, I ate live lightning bugs. They make your teeth glow but taste very bitter.

In New Mexico, we call it "The Breakfast of Champions".
