Odd Foods (wanna try?)


Boiled Bat is a much appreciated dish in Asia. Sold at a fairly steep price, it's considered by many a delicacy. It can be found in Fiji, and also other Asian countries. Those who taste it say that it tastes like chicken.

Pork Brains
(Heart attack anyone?)
Pork Brains is another dish that's not common among every restaurant. One company has gone a step further by making available to those who wish to try something different. Offering Pork Brains in a can with Milk Gravy. 150 calories and 5 grams of fat. It has 3,500mg of cholesterol, representing 1170% of the recommended daily allowance.


Lutefisk is a special kind of cod served in Norway. The food is soaked in alkaline solution to such a degree that it corrodes silverware. Somehow this dish is deemed safe for your intestines.

Japan is known for their down weird and odd dishes. So it shouldn't suprise you when you see that one Bull Penis on a Japanese Restaurant Menu. Eating Bull Penis is thought to increase blood flow to the genitals and stamina. Most who actually try the dish say it tastes like beef.


Balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) eg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. Considered to be an aphrodisiac and is believed to have high protein. Its commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines. Its also commonly sold in some countries in Southeast Asia.

Try washing down all that food with some wine from Korea. The wine is made by stuffing three day old mice into the bottle of rice wine and left about a year to combine flavors. Considered a "health tonic" in Korean and Chinese traditions, and has the taste of gasoline. Little mice are plucked from the embrace of their loving mothers and (while still alive) shoved into a bottle of wine. Yum! Mouse Flavor....

Sheep head anyone?
Pacha is a traditional Iraqi dish made from sheep's head, trotters and stomach; all boiled slowly and served with bread sunken in the broth. The Cheeks are considered the best parts. Many people prefer not to eat the eyeballs which could be removed before cooking. The stomach lining would be filled with rice and lamb and stitched with a sewing thread.
