What is the weirdest/most exotic creature you have ever eaten?
Bison - yummy
Been in China a lot, so heres a few
Deep fried locust: Crunchy nothingness
Drunken Prawn : i.e. live prawn in alcoholic liquor. Trick = get pissed yourself, and then pick the one that’s moving least, i.e. most pissed also.
Ox penis: Not nice at all
Sinew: looks like noodles, taste and texture like rubber bands
Elephant Nose Clam: Raw …nasty
Sea Cucumber: General consistency and flavour of snot
Live Snake: Executed at the table…gory and unpleasant
Live turtle: Ditto
Soft shelled turtle: served whole, then shell ripped off and dip into the innards…<gag>
Pig bowels: like soggy hula hoops.. and nasty
Assorted testicles at various times: General view being it improves your libido…...flawed thinking IMHO
Since I live in China for some time, the same as Berm Bandit, +
Cat - Nice, like Chicken
Rat - Chewy, nice with Chilli though
All sorts of bugs - Gross
All sorts of Larvae - Gross, except the bee larvae, quite honey tasting
Live Octopus - gross
Tuna Head - nice
Snake - way too boney
Snail Antlers - err nothing, just bone
Got to say that a lot of Chinese cuisine (if you can call it that) turns my stomach and seems particularly brutal.
Their love of exotic animals is what really gets me...and shark fin. The hunting process is disgustingly brutal and wasteful. Most sharks caught have their fins cut off whilst still alive and are then thrown back into the seato drown. Caught in alarming numbers too.
Anyway, back on topic I've eaten horse in France which was ok, also ate mountain goat which was horrible. Very tough and chewy. Buffalo was ok, but not to my liking really. Other than that I'm quite dull but I get a bit funny about eating endangered species or things that are killed on none humaine ways.
Sea slug - I didn't really want the seconds that were put on my plate by the lovely Chinese host!
Wild Boar stew -one of the best things I've eaten.
Alpaca - beefy
Guinea pig - chickeny
Smoked whale - leathery
Emu - chewy beefy
moose - usually chocolatey (sometimes strawberry)
Yak - tasted like beef
Llama - tasted like chewy beef
Turkey testicles and organ soup were both pretty disgusting.
Glass for a bet,doesnt really taste of anything until you swallow then a coppery taste,soon passes after several beers though.
Cuttlefish (the only thing I've actually felt guilty about eating)
Puffin (amazing - very gamey)
Some kind of chrysalis
Meal Worms (dried)
