Bizarre Foods From Around The World

People in general can appreciate good food, trying new foods and learning how to make different dishes but some of the things you can come across around the world are just unbelievable. I guess they say that about places they visit to huh?

Let us start with St Louis, Missouri where they have the fried calves’ brain. Out of all the foods studied around the world this by far takes the cake. But then again who knows — let us dig a little bit further. There is the black bean cheese that looked like flaked tar. Just looking at it makes you thirst for water.

Here in the U.S. cows are known for the delicious steaks we love to eat or the milk we love to drink but in some countries they enjoy the cow lungs—sticking with the steaks on this end!

Creepy crawlers give most people the heebie-jeebies and there are some that run hysterically because they are afraid to kill them. Might even go as far as jumping out of a moving car if they saw one but in Raleigh, N.C. there were cans of water bugs being sold in the stores as if you were buying tuna. Wonder are the dead or alive! What a surprise when you open the can.

Let us take a peep at Hong Kong — dried lizards to season their soup. Nothing more can be said on this one!

Been to Canada lately? Niagara Falls is the place to be but be careful what you order especially if they are round and of different sizes — you just might be eating buffalo testicles. Wonder what flavors they come in?

The average breakfast ordered here in the U S when you go out to eat or even at home -one might have bacon, eggs, toast and grits. Well over in the Philippines you just might have some duck on your plate. They cook fertilized chicken or duck eggs. Can you imagine having your eggs looking at you as you prepare to eat them? Can’t do it! Can’t do it!

As humans we are all different and have desires for different things but this by far takes the cake — fried flowers! Forget giving them to the girl of your dreams in a vase — just sit her down and fry her up a few!

  • Thanks for sharing this, Agree with you. I tried something in Australia don’t know what was it. but the thing is taste like shit.Bt as a foodie I have and some vegan recipe which I am going to share.
    While I am lucky and don’t suffer any food intolerances I understand there is a large portion of food loving people who do, and don’t want to be left out of all the fun. While some of my recipes are naturally gluten free, I have made a point of making some of them intentionally that way. And they have often turned out to be my most popular recipes. So in honour of all those that suffer from gluten issues or have friends or family that do here is a round-up of my Favourite Gluten Free Recipes.
    Gluten Free Protein Coconut Flour English Pancakes
    Tomorrow in the UK it’s Shrove Tuesday or more commonly known as Pancake Day! Now who doesn’t love a pancake? To celebrate this I was challenged by Holland and Barrett to take part in their ‘Blogger Protein Pancake Challenge’ to make healthier pancakes using the ingredients they send you. That is how these Gluten Free Protein Coconut Flour English Pancakes came about.

    First off I didn’t know what a minefeild pancakes were! To me growing up pancakes were a crepe like creation, just a tad thicker. But when I moved to Scotland, Scottish pancakes are more like American pancakes. And of course everyone loves those thick fluffy American pancakes. But I wanted to make the pancakes of my childhood. Thin, light and can be served sweet or savoury. Traditionally they are served with a sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Yeah… this primarily is a dessert blog so I came up with a couple of fancier alternatives.
    Holland and Barrett are a well known British health food store, catering for special diets long before it was “trendy” to do so. I remember as a kid needing to go visit them so I could get some vegetarian alternatives, luckily things have become a lot better for those of us who have different dietary requirements. But Holland and Barrett remain a British High Street staple. They sent me a bunch of goodies to set me on my path to pancake goodness. I received a bag of coconut flour, a carton of soya milk, a tub of soya protein powder in a choice of flavours, I chose vanilla. And I was allowed to choose 2 other items from their range. I chose coconut oil and coconut sugar, which I have been desperate to work with for ages.
    So as you can imagine with all this coconut goodness here, these pancakes do have a mild coconut flavour, but absolutely nothing overpowering. It’s equally balanced with a vanilla undertone which is given to it by the protein powder and the vanilla extract.These pancakes have a darker colour to them then regular pancakes and thats due to the coconut sugar. It’s dark rich colour makes the batter a darker colour then expected but it doesn’t matter because the flavour is amazing.

    Because these are gluten free pancakes all the ingredients can be thrown together in one bowl and whisked like mad until everything is well combined. But I have stipulated in the recipe to rest the batter for at least 30 minutes.

    Why? Well because of the coconut flour, this is a thirsty grainy flour. And by leaving it for 30 minutes it allows the coconut flour to absorb some of the liquid and become a lot smoother. But in a pinch feel free to just make the batter and straight away make your pancakes. The flavour is the same but the feel of the coconut flour is a little more pronounced. Which isn’t a bad thing, I made a batch like this and they were still good But lets be honest when it comes to pancakes, it all comes down to the fillings and how much we can stuff in to them! One batch that I made I used my favourite filling Nutella and sliced banana. Quick and easy but oh so tasty. But I’m also showing a healthier option for those that don’t want to shovel large amounts of Nutella down for breakfast or dessert! A simple plate of chopped fruit and a small tub of Greek yogurt.
    As you can see this is a simpler healthier option but just as lovely. But the sky is the limit with these pancakes. Choose whatever you fancy as a filling.Just a quick side note, when you are making these and you need to stack them place a small sheet of baking parchment between each pancake to keep them from sticking to each other. Then place them is a warm, not hot but just warm oven. Usually the lowest setting on your oven will do.And if you wish to make these savoury, just half the coconut sugar and omit the honey, ground cinnamon and the vanilla extract. Happy Pancake Day!

  • People Says that Insects taste delicious, they’ll change their minds. People all around the world eat insects This is practice called entomophagy for a whole host of reasons, while people all around the world don’t eat bugs for just as many reasons.

  • a debt of gratitude is in order for sharing this, Agree with you. I had a go at something in Australia don’t realize what was it. be that as it may, the thing is possess a flavor like shit.Bt as a foodie I have and some veggie lover formula which I am will share.

    While I am fortunate and don’t endure any nourishment bigotries I comprehend there is a substantial segment of sustenance cherishing individuals who do, and don’t have any desire to be let well enough alone for all the good times

  • Wow, a Very nice article I was searching Honey Chicken in end up reading this article. This is really good research and a very good article.

  • Vegan and vegetarian are two common things that closely related to each other but there is a little bit difference between them. Vegan does not use or consume anything that directly or indirectly came from an animal. But Vegetarian does not eat any animal flesh.
