Top 10 Strangest Foods In The World
By Matthew C.
Number 7. Dog: China,Korea And Vietnam
Its sad to see dog carcasses roasted beyond recognition or locked in those tight little cages, waiting for the slaughter. While not widely consumed in Korea these days, dog meat is big money in Vietnam, leading to a massive increase in the stealing of family pets.
Number 4. Witchetty Grub: Australia
Part of the Australian ‘bushmeat’ family, this was another staple of Common Australians in the desert. These can either be eaten raw, when it tastes like almonds, or lightly cooked, where its skin crisps like roast chicken and its insides take on the look and consistency of scrambled egg.
Number 3. Stink Bugs: Africa
Used to flavour stews or eaten on their own, stinkbugs are said to have a crunch to them and taste a little like apple. Prepared by boiling, the bugs release defensive fumes in a last ditch attempt to survive, and while it hurts the eyes it’s no more successful than the onion’s weak survival attempt.
Number 2. Fried Spider: Cambodia
Fried spider is a regional delicacy popular in the Cambodian town of Skuon, prepared by marinating it in MSG, sugar and salt and then frying it in garlic. Apparently it has more meat on it than a grasshopper, but also has brown sludge in the abdomen, which consists of mainly innards, eggs and excrement.
