So what are the strangest food I’ve ever tried?

Balut. One has to be courageous to eat this developing duck embryo. Boiled egg, but when you shell the egg, you can see the little duck, and when you bite into it, you can feel its body parts. It’s a streetfood in the Philippines.

Starfish. Damn, it’s like crunching beach sand in your mouth! And tastes exactly the same! Never ever! My stomach got heavy after eating an arm, imagine having small stones in my stomach for days! I tried this in Beijing, China.

Snake. A tiny bit of its tail. Fried snake is actually tasty, almost like fried squid. I tried this in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Sea Urchin. We tried this in a sand bar in the middle of the sea, raw with only vinegar to remove the raw taste. Tried this in Bacolod, Philippines.

Frog legs. Very harmless. Taste like chicken. Tried this in the Philippines.

Rabbits. These are very popular in restaurants in Beligum, where I tried it. Lupin.

Wild deer and moose. A restaurant in Solna, Sweden has given me a wonderful culinary experience.

Chicken feet. I grew up seeing this in the streets, so of course, I tried. Not much taste though. There’s no meat! You just eat the skin!

Escargot. Small land snails. I actually like these. I tried this at a restaurant at Champs-Élysées in Paris, France, at Sheraton Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden and the popular weekend food market in Salcedo Village, Makati, Philippines.

Jungle snail. Huge snail that is as hard to chew as a rubber tire and tastes very much like wet soil. I tried this at a fancy hotel in Lagos, Nigeria.
