Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten


For me, it would either be balut, which is hard boiled duck embryo popular in Southeast Asia, or century egg, which is a traditional Chinese egg which has been preserved in chemicals for a long time. Both were disgusting! What kind of food do you fellow monkeys think is really weird? Comment below!

A German ordered Mongolian Cow Penis at a restaurant for everyone at the table and everyone had some. In Beijing. Never again. Mongolian restaurant.

Duck Embryo looks gnarly but tastes fine. Same goes for century egg (with enough onions)
The worst egg related dish I ever ate was hard boiled rotten egg, it was so putrid

A few years back there was a hip new restaurant in NYC that made a splash with their Kung Pao Pastrami and Salt Cod Fried Rice. Both were actually quite good, and it is still going strong. I've also had jellyfish from an authentic place in Flushing's Chinatown. (pretty good) There's also the standard beef tongue tacos (make sure there's decent turnover, and they clean the tongue well) and the alligator, boar, ostrich sausages. (mostly a novelty item)

If anything, the worst meal I've had, outside of my mother's pork pucks (seriously, she cooks good pork chops to death) was a duck dish from a novelty restaurant on the jersey shore. We were given a gift certificate, and I ordered the duck, because I like duck a lot. it was so dry and freezer-burned it was inedible.

I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

Shark is weird, tasteless, so they ferment it. Fermented shark tastes disgusting and they give you vodka to chase the shark with.

Whale is also weird, though actually tastes good (less dense beef, if I could put a description to it).

Have eaten horse as well, nothing special.

Alligator is really good, very delicate chicken.

Not entirely sure. It was in Iceland, if that helps narrow it down. I believe it may have been a dorsal fin of a great white?

Also I don't know if "tasteless" is accurate. I'd assume just cooking the shark I ate would yield more of a "bland" taste (like unseasoned chicken) and so they ferment it. The fermentation was beyond strong. Drinking alcohol is one thing, chewing a fermented food is in it's own league.
