I'm watching Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmer, and just got me thinking how many weird food I've eaten... not many actually.
Strangest food I've ever eaten is probably raw octopus at a sushi place.
What about y'all?
Calf fries. Delicious and well fried and dunked in cream gravy.
But still. I had balls in my mouth.
Just... it was weird. Knowing some cow had been emasculated for the sake of tasty food.
Lamb Brain, boiled in a hotpot and served in a creamy peanut sauce at a Muslim Resturant in Beijing.

Balut (Philippines) - Duck embryo in egg. Surprisingly taste good.
Dinuguan (Philippines) - Pork intestines, liver, kidney cooked in Pig's blood. Love it with hot rice.
Dried Salted Fish bones (Indonesia) - It's like dried fish, only bones. Can eat it raw.
BBQ Grasshoppers and bugs (China) - Ate one stick of this during in Beijing. They have strong smell. Don't really like it.
Fugu (Japan) - an expensive fish in Japan. My dad bought it once. He insisted I should it one as it took him so much money just to have it >_<
Kenta's Pokemon Party
Cricket and chocolate chip cookies. Nice and crunchy.
Anyway the weirdest thing I've had isn't weird at all (well unless you're a very domestic American lol) I've had Barbacoa con lengua (cow tongue and cheek) and some bison ground beef lol

the strangest food I can remember eating is Mako Shark. I'm sure I've eaten worse though.
“And as to you life, I reckon you are the leavings of many deaths, No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before.”
I think either snails or durian.
All I remember about the snails is that they were really garlicy. And durian is a spiky death fruit with the foulest stink in all creation.
I bought some water buffalo jerky once but it went bad before I could eat it.
Alkali fly larvae. It's like crunchy salted butter.
it was kind of like a tasteless fruit gusher, except the exoskeleton was very chewy (ended up just swallowing that part whole).
Calamari. It tastes like goat meat mixed with tofu.
Escargot (although I LOVE it and have it almost often).
Not sure how strange other people may consider it, but I've had raw beef twice: Once as strips with ponzu in Japan, and once as steak bleu in France.
I've eaten several ants once. If I remember correctly, they didn't taste good, they were rather bland.
The moment man devoured the fruit of knowledge, he sealed his fate… Entrusting his future to the cards, man clings to a dim hope. Yet, the arcana is the means by which all is revealed. Beyond the beaten path lies the absolute end. It matters not who you are… Death awaits you - Nyx (Persona 3)
