Now, I like all kinds of foods from all over the world. There isn't much I won't try. Durian, balut, heart, blood, suckling pig face, whatever.

But I think I just met my match.

surströmming. oh my angry $deity.

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!!! This is the most unholy thing to ever touch my tastebuds.


What's the most fearful food you've run across?

Japanese fermented fish entrails. My sister-in-law and I tried it one year the weekend before thanksgiving at the Japanese place the wife and I go to when we want to live it up. Looked exactly like you would think it would, like a big blob of multicolored goo. Tasted really bad. SIL and I tried it "on the count of three" and washed it down with about a gallon of sapporo. At least I can say I tried it...

Loaded chicken colon, in a "hotpot" in central china.

Nothing in Japan compares the the horrors of chinese cuisine.

"Loaded?" as in, not cleaned?

Id love to try the unholy trinity of foods people mention when talking about scary foods. Balut, lutefisk and hagus, but havent had occassion.

Since I like black and white puddings, I would think I would actually enjoy hagus.

I go out of my comfort zone now and then and get a McDonalds burger. Does that count as heinous?

I'm Filipino so I grew up around balut. Never liked it tho. Actually, I like everything about the balut except for the actual fetus.

I'll try anything once just to say I've tried it. So far I've tried donkey meat, cicada (bugs), raw horse meat, and dried durian chips.

There are some mild fermented fish dishes that I don't mind, but as a rule of thumb, I really hate fermented fish.

Uh, they don't clean much in central china. It was stuffed like a cannoli. I tried to go vegan during my trip.

If you saw the incredibly dirty place I was eating, you'd know that it wasn't cleaned. I ate there every day for lunch. Nasty. I was in an industrial area 700 miles south of Beijing. Low rent, lowest wages in China, and that's saying a lot.

And yes, they did have dog on the "menu", which was written on a wall. 2 kinds as I was told.
