I've eaten crocodile, which is far too bland: it needs a nice sauce to bring it to life. Kangaroo, of course,  is now available in many Australian supermarkets: it tastes summat like beef but needs a little more cooking. But when it comes down to weird you can't beat a  Balmain bug. They're ugly little beasties but taste delicious.

It's a salt water crayfish. Much tastier than lobster. They started marketing the stuff cheaply during the 1960s and, until then, it was relatively unknown. Now it's as expensive as lobster.

Shame the price has gone up. I would like to have tried it.

It's not prohibitive, but it's expensive enough for somebody on a restricted budget to have it only occasionally. I'm not sure they're exported though. If you're not in Oz the air far might make the meal a bit pricey. :(

I'd have to say Alligator and Calamari. I love both foods, although, I never would have tasted the Calamari if I had known what it was when I tried it. I need to stop listening to people when they tell me that they won't tell me what it is until after I try it. That usually leads to trouble, lol.

Hmmmmm ... I can't think of anything, at the moment.

But I'm one of those people who don't mind trying new food ... Depending on how it looks.  Lol

Grasshoppers. They are a Oaxacan (Mexican) delicacy - fried with chile powder.

I didn't like them.  It was a texture thing. You can feel their spiky little legs in your mouth. They didn't really have a taste.

I've also eaten crocodile, when in South Africa. I concur though, it doesn't have a lot of flavour (or colour) - A bit like very bland white ham. I've eaten a lot of goat over the years, usually in some middle eastern country. It's rare in the UK, but probably the most common meat in some countries. Goats always seem to have way too many bones.

I ate all sorts of stuff when I was in India. Vegetarian restaurants there are REALLY clever with vegetables. (2 dozen different things you can do with a cauliflower :) )

  1. ''bounded chicken soup'' (literally translated to english, as it's not my native language) more like chicken soup jelly... YUCK! (it was what i got... I didn't choose to).

I had some diced up raw octopus once. It had only just been chopped up, so some parts were still sort of squirming on the plate. My girlfriend had to walk out of the restaurant, but I went ahead with it because we were in Korea with a friend's family, and I didn't want to be rude. Plus it seemed adventurous :)

It tasted pretty bland and chewy.

If you want to see the real deal though, you can find some clips on YouTube of people eating octopuses completely alive. I don't think I could handle seeing the eyes and stuff!
