I tried lutefisk once. Imagine fishy jello with a helping of raw chemicals. It wasn't very pleasing. I think the most disgusting (and I'll catch hell from some of you) thing I ever ate has to be a tie between a haggis that was improperly prepared or the northern Ohio version of scrapple. NEVER ever eat a haggis that was prepared by an American cook! The real deal isn't as displeasing as one might think. My aversions to certain foods doesn't come from taste mostly, it's definitely the texture. Example: I love the taste of most sashimi, but the texture makes me want to gag. Add to that boiled okra or raw oysters. Why not just swallow a glob of snot instead?

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.
I was being delicate when I said "cleaned". "Loaded" made it sound like they hadnt bothered to remove waste matter.

What did they stuff it with? Ground pork? Chilis? I'm legitimately interested.

They didn't clean them. They didn't stuff them. They were au natural. My chinese driver chewed it right up. We are not talking some kind of delicacy here. The hotpot is filled with all the chewy gristley bits that you'd never find in food. I suspect it is a better dish in the bigger metropolitan areas of China, but not in the nether-regions.

Not only was the hotpot generally nasty, but anything that looks "deep-fried" or battered should be avoided. The breading ALWAYS hid pieces of meat that were undigestable and full of pieces of bone. My chinese colleages just spit the bad parts right onto the table, but I stuck with things that had the appearance of vegatable. You can be fooled though since the nasty meat bits can take all sorts of appearances. Something that I thought was a bean was a beef artery. That was nasty too. Hollow, you could pass a pencil through it.

To be fair, the food in Beijing was far, far better.

Used to make what I called a cannibal sandwich:
2 slices of bread, raw hamburger mixed with an egg, salt, pepper and a few dashes of hot sauce and worcestshire sauce.

I miss those sometimes.
