Strange Food!

I love food! I think most of you know that already! I became more open to the idea of trying out different things! Things that may be disgusting to some of you! Traveling and culture also ads to the experience and makes you more open to the idea of trying different things out!

So okay, let me list some of the things I have tried throughout the years…

Bone marrow (I ate bone marrow as a child A LOT! I dont know if I will do it again!)

Escargot (In Europe! Not bad actually)

Frog legs (I tried it from a friend who was having it for dinner… tasted somehow like chicken :-P)

Venison (While visiting Alaska! I was told its a MUST have)

Some sort of river fish when I visited Taiwan! (I have strange feelings towards river fishies)

Rabbit (I was around 15 or 16 didnt know at the time and I cried so much afterwards)

Kaya Singaporean coconut egg jam

So now… moving on to less “strange” food I ate and tried!

I have tried chocolate in spicy flavors and posted about it too (click here)

And same goes for potato chips… In lime (click here)! And I got to try wasabi flavored chips brought to me all the way from Thailan by my very good frienemy N-Logic!

He warned me not to take BIG bites.. and since I am not so much into spicy food, but into trying out different things I took the challenge!

The moment that potato chips bag was open, the smell of wasabi tickled my nose I almost sneezed! I took a medium sized chip and ate it… that gave me a quick rush to my head and a strong hit in my throat…. and cleared my sinuses! My eyes became watery too!! I must admit that I got a “hmmmm yummm” feeling afterwards and had few more chips! It never gets easier because you get to go through all that over and over… but the after taste is amazing! I had to stop though cuz it was burning somehow!

What is the strangest food you’ve ever tried/ate? Come on… Do share πŸ˜‰
