My foray into exotic foods has been limited to shark, swordfish, and buffalo. All of which are very good.

Kani miso is quite a delicacy.

One of my favorites is chicken fried buffalo steak.

In HK dishes, we regularly have roast goose and pigeons as well in addition to roast duck. I wouldn't think it as too outlandish, but prior to being in HK the most interesting dish I had would probably be deer meat. It was one of my favorite dishes, but probably artificially tenderized to a point where meat texture wasn't really representable of the original. Once I had arrived in HK 10 years ago, the weird stuff started to come. For starters, for really regular chinese food we have stewed Chinese Softshell Turtle, Sharksfin is obviously very popular, Fish Maw (The better ones have an extremely interesting texture - extremely gooey, yet still able to retain its own mass), Sea cucumber, Fish Bladder, pork Ears, pork neck, not to mention all the pig innards (intestine, stomach, liver etc), horseshoe crab also probably the most interesting shellfish to behold in person is the - Geoduck (sounds like a pokemon) Of Japanese Sashimi and Sushi - It has come to a point where pretty much anything of the sea is edible? nothing is really too surprising anymore unless its horse meat, or raw beef :p.... The last time I was genuinely surprised was when my GF had went to Japan last week and had a serving of...Fish sperm sushi!...apparently it was delicious.

Out of the really odd things I have had, there was this one trip to China where I had "Water Cockroach". I knew I kept these photos for a reason, A photo of them swimming, you get to choose your food while they are alive to ensure their freshness Them all cooked and juicy. You have to first peel off their legs and wings which are very hard. They were crunchy at first due to their exoskeleton part being fried and all, then their insides had a completely different taste, mushy and savory to the taste and then you have the even more interesting snacks, of which my colleague bought but we never ended up eating. I would say the most odd thing America has are....Chicken waffles. :p

When i was younger, my mum used to make lamb brains fairly frequently. She'd fry them with garlic, and we would eat them with lebanese bread and a bit of lemon juice squeezed over them. We also had lamb tongues, bone marrow; and my dad occasionally still has raw kidney/ liver with salt and pepper.

I've never had that, which is somewhat suprising considering my family used to own and raise bison. We ate buffalo, prepared in numerous fashions, almost weekly.

Maybe you're thinking of Geodude?

I am pretty well ready to eat the musclular flesh of almost anything, I jsut really dno't like innards, even of the most common animal.

I've had donkey and pony, monkey, deer, wild boar and a variety of fish and birds. in india, goat is very very common, so I have had that more times that I could imagine.

Uhhhh....think I'll have dry saltines and water for lunch. I have fairly "catholic" (read universal) tastes but this thread is working better than Jenny Craig.

Even crackers aren't safe. Think of hardtack, which Civil War troops would sometimes eat in the dark because it was so infested with maggots and weevils. They could feel the bugs squirming in their mouth as they chewed.

Sometimes they would cook the hardtack to kill the bugs, but I'm not sure that's much better.

i've travelled all over the world so i've had a bunch of these 'unusual foods.' the most unusual, and best tasting, was actually human meat (from the thighs) in mongolia.

I guess cannibalism wins the thread.

I could probably eat person if it was neccesary for survival or I didn't have to prepare it. I don't know if I could keep sushi in my mouth if I saw the fish it came off of watching me eat it from inside the tank. That just seems a little weird.
