Keep your enemies close and your food closer, the love for food is just everlasting for many of us. Trying and experimenting with recipes is what many of us do. These foods from all over the world are just that you need to see if you are a food lover! Extraordinary is all we can say.
1.Fried spiders, Cambodia
The Cambodian delicacy of fried spider is something of an acquired taste. These little chaps are tarantulas, served with a lime and black pepper dip in the Phnom Penh restaurant Romdeng. The restaurant serves over 200 a week.
Grasshoppers are loaded with protein, and are a popular delicacy in many parts of the world. In Asia, you’ll find them fried and sold in street markets, while in Mexico, a type called chapulines are often served with lime and garlic.
Fancy trying a live octopus? Sannakji is a traditional Korean dish of octopus cut into small pieces and served while the tentacles are still squirming. Unsurprisingly, it presents something of a choking hazard.
4.Baby mice wine, China/Korea
Another drink supposed to have beneficial health properties is baby mice wine, wine filled with well, you guessed it.
Generally found on Mopane trees (hence the name), this caterpillar is an important source of protein for millions of people in Africa. Typically they are dried out and eaten as a crispy snack.
fugu is Japanese for “pufferfish” and in case you didn’t know, yes, they are poisonous. Japanese law strictly controls their preparation in restaurants and only highly trained chefs are allowed to handle them. They are so dangerous in fact that domestic preparation has been known to cause accidental death.
7.Tuna eyeball – Japan
Although it sounds nasty, apparently it’s rather tame, tasting pretty similar to squid or octopus.
8.Wasp crackers – Japan
Yep, you guessed it, it’s a biscuit filled with wasps. Think chocolate chip cookies, only the insects replace the chips.
What’s there to say? Basically the back end and back legs of a frog, grilled, baked, fried or stewed. Would you dare try it?
10.Crocodile – Australia, Southeast Asia and Africa
Not only harvested for shoes, crocodile meat is considered a delicacy in many places around the world, supposedly tasting like a cross between chicken and crab. Although crocodiles are protected in many parts of the world, crocodile meat is usually farmed, so is sustainable if not particularly kind or natural.
