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

Dogs ARE more valuable than cows and pigs and chickens. When was the last time your Leghorn instinctively knew you were down and unmistakably responded to it?
When has your potbellied pig ever taken down a home invader?
Would your Guernsey lay down her life to protect yours?
This reflexive denunciation of "speciesism" is delusional bullcrap, and a direct offshoot of the counter-intuitive canard of blanket "equality."

2 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.

Worst. Just worst. - ndrnads20

I'm not joking. - connorhare10

Sounds fun, where can I eat Mr.Fuzzyleggs? - Merilille

3 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

4 Tuna Eyes

I like eating fish eyeballs. They are so delicious!

They could just eat the tuna. But they had to eat the eyeballs. - connorhare10

Thanks list, I have to barf now. - Therandom

5 Balut

This food is really sad. it's a fetus duck still in its egg, cooked and ready to eat. :( - connorhare10

6 Chicken Blood Cubes


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

7 Sannakji

This octopus can move and use it's tentacles to latch on to things. which means it could latch on to your throat and kill you. - connorhare10

8 Durians

I'm Asian and I eat this with cake and it's so delicious

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

9 Turtle Jelly

I'm Asian and I eat this and it's so delicious!

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

10 Chocolate-Covered Crickets

Some people say this is tasty
personally I want to barf

The Contenders

11 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.

Chef training takes 7-10 years, a written exam, and an exam successfully making in front of more experienced fugu chefs.

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

12 Escargot

These are really expensive, and delicious, too!

Snails are weird

13 Pig Brain

I had this at a hot pot and it made my stomach feel weird.
