Ever dreamt of eating tarantulas or raw octopus? Me, No!!! But if you have, then that dream can be fulfilled easily. Because these are actually eaten in different parts of the world? Here we bring you 7 weird dishes that are eaten all over the world.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
