BIZARRE FOOD

Here are some of the bizarre food can be found around the globe. Minus the pig blood, I dun mind eating the rest ^_^



Live Octopus
Where to Get It: Korea
Diners who choose sannakji shouldn't be squeamish — reserve that trait for the food on the plate. Live octopus is cut up and seasoned with oil and sesame seeds to make this dish. Watch out for those suction cups after you take a bite. They can get stuck to your mouth and throat.



 




Rotten Cheese
Where to Get It: Sardinia, Italy
Casu marzu develops when cheese fly larvae are introduced into Pecorino to promote advanced fermentation. As the larvae hatch and eat through the cheese, it softens. Diners have to dig in before the maggots die. Brushing them off before eating is optional.
 
Fried Tarantulas
Where to Get It: Cambodia
Looking for a filling mid-afternoon snack? If you're in Skuon, Cambodia, the top choice is definitely fried tarantulas — head, legs, fangs, and all!
 
 
Bird's Nest Soup
Where to Get It: China or Malaysia
Diners who order bird's nest soup are okay with having spit in their food. The base of the soup comes from a bird nest, but you won't find any twigs. The resourceful swift uses its own saliva to build its treetop home. When dissolved in water, the saliva nests (pictured at left) make a perfect gelatin-like base for this much-praised soup.It is said that it's good for your health and are very expensive according to type and grades.
 
 
Puffer Fish
Where to Get It: Japan
Eat at your own risk! This sensational delicacy has a taste that kills — literally. The puffer fish's skin and certain organs contain tetrodotoxin, an extremely poisonous toxin that can paralyze a human and lead to asphyxiation. Only trained and licensed chefs are allowed to prepare the dish. Here's a hint: If you're sharing the dish, don't take the first bit. 



Fermented Shark
Where to Get It: Iceland
You've heard of a fish out of water; how about a fish underground? Preparing this Icelandic dish requires fermenting shark meat pieces underground for one to three months, then hanging them out to dry for several more months. The result is a pungent dish of meat that many travelers dare to try.
 
 
 


Pig's Blood Cake
Where to Get It: Taiwan
Chances are you haven't had a piece of cake like this. The classic Taiwanese snack is made from a mixture of pork blood and sticky rice that's either fried or steamed. Top it with some peanut powder and a bit of cilantro and you've got yourself a filling snack!


Fried Silkworms
Where to Get It: Vietnam and China
What do you do with a silkworm if you don't want silk? Eat it! In Vietnam and China, vendors sell live silkworks that are usually fried (Korean street chefs prefer to boil their silkworms) for a simple snack.
 
 
Fried Flowers
Where to Get It: Thailand
You'll find a lot of critters fried and served by street vendors on the streets of Thailand. But the the Rose Garden resort in Nakhon Pathom takes the vegetarian route with its popular fried orchids (pictured), roses, and bougainvillea.This one I think I can eat it. ^_^
 
Whale Muktuk
Where to Get It: Alaska and Canada
This meal of whale skin and blubber is usually enjoyed raw by Inuit natives. But you might find versions diced, breaded, deep fried, and served with soy sauce.
