1. Fugu

Fugu is a Japanese pufferfish that contains enough poison to kill 30 people. The chefs who prepare this expensive Japanese delicacy have to undergo years of training. Served in a stew, grilled or as paper-thin sashimi, any small mistake in preparation could mean an untimely end to the consumer.


2. Tarantulas

Being crispy on the outside with white meat in the head and the body, tasting almost like chicken, this is a favourite among Cambodians.



3. Snake Wine

Snake wine is an alcoholic beverage made with snake and rice wine (or grain alcohol). Many of the snakes are venomous, but the ethanol makes it safe to drink. There are two types of snake wine – you either immerse a snake in rice wine and leave it for many months, or you drain the fluids of a snake directly into the alcohol and take it as a shot.

4. Paniki

Paniki is a dish made by boiling a fruit bat in a pot of boiling coconut milk. After the bat has been boiled, it is chopped up and seasoned with a variety of herbs and spices.

5. Haggis

Haggis is sheep’s stomach stuffed with sheep’s liver, lungs and heart, onions, oatmeal, and other spices. Then this is simmered for three hours.

6. Sannakji

This one is served raw.  Here the chef dismembers a small octopus before you and seasons the pieces with sesame oil and many times they are still moving on the plate as you reach for your chopsticks.

7. Tuna eyeball

These eyeballs are widely available in Japan but it’s quite an acquired taste for some. Just boil and season, and start eating the eyeball’s fish fat and muscles and it tastes like hard-boiled eggs or squid.

So next time you are in any of the country mentioned above, don’t forget to try out the dish! :p

Hope you enjoyed the post! I f you did, then don’t forget to like the post and let us know if you know of any such dishes too!

      1. yup! 😀 besides if it were to come down to living in a world with no lasagna just shoot me and put me out of my misery, problem solved hahaa! XO!


  2. Fish eyeball isn’t so bad as it’s made out to be.
    Nor is the sheep stomach to be honest.

    I’m surprised that all the comments express how people are so grossed out. When you consider food history, sausages used to be made with intestines.
    Stomachs were emptied and used as waterskins
    Early European settlers in America at times ate meats raw.
    If you think the moving (but dead) octopus is disgusting then think about the poor oysters which are eaten alive.
