Strangest thing you have eaten.
« on: September 16, 2015, 18:47:39 PM »
What's the strangest thing you have eaten or tried to eat?

I'm going for a dim sum I had in China, one of them was very very tasty, I leant over to the Chinese lady sat next to me and enquired what it contained. "Ahh Mr Nick that is pigs penis" . Sometimes it's best not to know!

She would probably have looked at you a bit strange had you commented, "I've never eaten it before but this tastes a lot like pigs penis"

Another strange one was Goose barnacles in Portugal, http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2012/oct/08/wild-goose-barnacle-chase
Look like dragons feet and taste of the sea, fiddly but nice.
