In a separate thread started by Echophonic the discussion was about a cheese in Italy. I thought it would be a good idea to see what strange foods others have eaten. Try to remember to include where you ate this as well. I'll kick things off.
1: 산낙지 (san-nak-gee) Literally translated: living octopus. A traditional Korean dish. They pull the octopus from the tank, cut it up, and put it in front of you....while it's still squirming. It's often a battle to get it off the plate because the suction cups are still working, and they cling to anything the can. Once it's off the plate it goes into a oil-salt mix, and then into the mouth, where the fight continues as it attaches itself to the tongue. Chew thoroughly. Swallow. Repeat. Delicious! Pictured below: (I hope you didn't just eat!)
2: Snake Soup in TaiPei. The snakes are in cages, and they cut it up in front of you and put the pieces into a broth. But, that's not the weird part. The weird part is drinking the 50% alcohol, 50% snake blood mix that is served with the soup. Not to mention a small green pill that contains the sexual organs. It does the stamina good.
3: 육회 (yook-hwey) A Korean dish of raw horse meat. It's served chilled. Not as bad as you might think. Plus it comes with a few other dishes, such as horse soup, sweet and sour horse, and finished with another raw dish.
I guess those would be my top three. Can't wait to hear of others' forays into the strange.
