Top 10 Weirdest Food Delicacies
The Top Ten
The concept alone is gross - blackflower
A Filippino dish. It's an egg with a little baby bird in it. - Metal_Treasure
Fugu is puffer fish, the ultimate delicacy in Japan. Fugu can be deadly if not prepared correctly. Puffer fish contains the poisonous toxin tetrodotoxin, which is 1,250 times stronger than cyanide. You could end up paralysed and eventually die from asphyxiation because there is no known antidote. - Metal_Treasure
It can kill you. No way am I ever eating that I - blackflower
Bird nests made predominantly out of saliva that are used in Chinese cuisine. These nests are mostly added to soups but also to other dishes.
Price - about $2,500 per kilogram in Asia. - Metal_Treasure
$2,500? Gee whiz, that's a lot of money! I could use that money for house payments instead... but where's the fun in that? - Gg2000
Just plain disgusting - blackflower
That comment is awesome. How would something taste like Call of Duty?
A delicacy for tourists in Cambodia. Tarantulas are fried whole - legs, fangs and all. They are seasoned with salt, garlic and chilli. They’re said to taste like a combo between chicken and Call of Duty. 🤣 LOL, I didn't write Call of Duty. Auto correct changed the name of a fish to Call of Duty. Apparently, I can't write the name of that fish because it's gonna be changed again. So I will write it like that "c-o-d". - Metal_Treasure
A raw dish consisting of live octopus typical in Korea. It's called sannakji. Live octopus is cut into pieces, lightly seasoned with sesame oil and served immediately, the tentacles still squirming on the plate. - Metal_Treasure
Inhumane - blackflower
Sardinian cheese riddled with insect larvae. The cheese has to be eaten when the maggots are still alive because when they are dead it is considered to be toxic.
It was banned for health reasons but can still be found on the black market in Sardinia and other parts of
Italy. - Metal_Treasure
Why would someone willingly eat maggots? - blackflower
Chunks of jelly-consistency pig blood. But duck, sheep, chicken and cow blood is also used in China. It looks like chocolate chunks... - Metal_Treasure
Gross but I love your Lists Metal - BreakFastBeast2005
OH COME ON! These are good with congee!
Quail or duck eggs preserved in a mixture of clay, ash, salt and quicklime for a long period of time - weeks or months. The yolk has a strong odor of sulfur and ammonia. The odor of rotten eggs.
They are served at special occasions in China. - Metal_Treasure
A Mexican delicacy. It’s the larvae of ants that are found on the tequila plant. - Metal_Treasure
Oh my god this shouldn’t even BE considered as caviar - IceFoxPlayz
Bat Soup is the national dish of Palau, and Federated States of Micronesia. Yup, bats in your soup. - Metal_Treasure
I don't know about everone eles but I lost my appitite - The_gEEK_GamEr9
Absolutely disgusting Greenland delicacy. - TheHabsFan
"Kiviak or kiviaq is a traditional wintertime Inuit food from Greenland that is made of little auks (Alle alle) fermented in a seal skin.
Up to 500 whole auks are packed into the seal skin. Over the course of three months, the birds ferment, and are then eaten during the arctic winter, particularly on birthdays and weddings." - wiki - Metal_Treasure
It's a worm usually served raw with salt and sesame oil in Korea.
In China the worm is stir-fried with vegetables. - Metal_Treasure
yum - jimmynutrin
Shirako in Japanese means “white children” but refers to the sperm sacs of either Call of Duty, angler fish or puffer fish. Looking like white blobs of goo or miniature brains, they are said to have a sweet custardy taste. Yum - BreakFastBeast2005
I hate autocorrect...BreakFastBeast2005 didn't write 'the sperm sacs of Call of Duty" 😂.
The same happened to me. It's c-o-d and not Call of Duty. - Metal_Treasure
