Top Ten Weirdest Foods from Outside the Americas

The weirdest foods from Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

The Top Ten

1 Dog

Seriously, it's only a thing in poor, rural areas (or certain restaurants) where they can't afford to eat all the fancy meat we can. Either way, I don't see how it's different from eating any other animal;: that's saying that dogs are inherently more valuable than cows and pigs and chickens. - keycha1n

Actually here, they use it as food and serve it with beer. - Fandom_Lover

Seriously, why would anyone eat pets? - connorhare10

2 African Bullfrog

This frog has a variety of toxins made to poison predators! - connorhare10

Heyy I tried frogs in China! They were definitely not African Bullfrogs but they taste really really...underwhelming. - keycha1n

3 Tarantula Tarantula Tarantulas comprise a group of large and often hairy arachnids belonging to the Theraphosidae family of spiders, of which approximately 900 species have been identified.

6 Durians

Durian is the true meaning of 'don't judge a book by its cover'. It tastes good! If you want to get rid of the smell on your mouth, pour some water into its skin and drink it, or just eat an apple! - ndrnads20

Nothing wrong with a simple fruit, right? But it smells horrible, but it tastes so sweet! - connorhare10

7 Turtle Jelly

What is turtle jelly, you may ask? It jelly, but instead of bones they are turtle shells. - connorhare10

9 Chicken Blood Cubes

Chicken blood cubes may just look like chocolate. But it's actually clotted chicken blood. - connorhare10

10 Fugu Fugu Fugu is the Japanese word for pufferfish and is also a Japanese dish prepared from the meat of pufferfish. Pufferfish are deadly and if the fish is prepared incorrectly it can lead to death (in fact there are numerous deaths reported in Japan each year from the consumption of this delicacy). One pinhead more.

This fish is filled with deadly toxins and I don't even know why this is legal. - connorhare10
