Oh, I love "Bizzare Foods with Andrew Zimmern (aka The fat guy)" so this is now officially my new favorite thread! For me, just the idea of food
that is unfamiliar is enough of a reason to try it.
I found it kind of suprising that what some people considered "crazy" I have always thought was widely known as the "norm" ie. Octopus, Squid,
I guess the "craziest" thing I have eaten would be raw Sea Urchin. It honestly tastes like a mouthful of saltwater. I have also had escargo (snails
- DELICIOUS - much like steamer clams), Beef Tongue, many raw fish (sashimi) including Salmon, Tuna, Octopus, Squid and Eel, Salmon Roe (eggs),
Flying Fish Roe, whatever deep fried whole crab that is in a spider roll, Duck, Deer Jerky, Alligator, Frog legs, Crawdads ( not this
, though) and probably some other critters/plants that do not spring to mind.
Beef Tongue has to be one of the best meats I have ever had. Put it in a crock pot with a couple cans of of french onion soup for four hrs. on high,
and it's tastier than roast beef!
