Most unique food you've eaten in another city or foreign country (ADD PICS)
For me since I'm not an adventurous eater it was a "meatball" in Belgium that was more a meat tartar....




Also in Italy I watched the SO eat
and I was kinda grossed out by it

Bugs, eels, and bats cooked on skewers over a fire.

The main farmers/vendor market in Bangkom has more unique foods that you could ever imagine.

Those motherfrickers eat all sorts of shit

It doesn't look to unique, but a few weeks ago I ate Puffin when I was in Iceland:



The grossest thing I've ever eaten was from the same trip. Fermented shark. This isn't the exact shark I ate because I didn't take a photo, but it looked exactly like this:

It was a really awkward scenario. I was at an AirBnB in Selfoss, Iceland. There was a couple in their fifties that owned the property. They had a hot tub and I asked if we could have it turned on that night. They said of course.

I went out to the hot tub and turns out there was some holiday that evening, so my hosts family was all there. So there I was, in the hot tub, alone, as they sat in a dining area with all glass that faced the hot tub.

They all came out and kept offering me food. Everything I had was amazing, and then they offered me the shark. I ate it, somehow kept a straight face, and basically swallowed it like a pill. Out of politeness I told them I loved it.

Everyone cheered and I was declared an “honorary Viking”.

That looks pretty gross especially because I know how Scandinavians season their food

A few that come to mind:
-Picked out small octopus, had a lady cut it up and put sesame on it and ate it raw. All the cut up tentacles were still crawling around when we ate it. This was in Seoul
-A whole fried tarantula in Cambodia (tasted pretty good, considering)
-Whale steak in Norway

Niboshi. Dried infant fish. But an awesome flavoring for rice.

Also had a hot pot in China with some random black and white looking organ meat. They couldn’t explain what it was and I’ve never been able to get an answer to what it was.

Tete de veau (head of veal),the contents of the head of a calf, including the brains and tongue, served in a gribiche sauce. The restaurant was Café Constant on rue St. Dominique in Paris. My wife snapped a picture then wouldn't look at the plate again until I was finished. My second place award goes to a dish I had on that same trip. It was freshly made boudin noir (blood sausage) at Le Temps des Cerises, a small family run bistro near the Bastille in Paris. It was served in a rich demi glace sauce. Both dishes were absolutely delicious ( especially the boudin noir) and went well with good bottles of Bordeaux.

Sauerbraten made with horse meat in Germany. I've eaten just about every land critter in the states but it took even me a second to try horse meat. It was delicious. You can get horse meat in a can or from the butcher. SO's mom went the fresh route from the butcher. It completely changed my thoughts on eating Flika.

I've had horse sashimi and shark fin soup in japan, then jellyfish in china last year. All three were pretty good.

The jellyfish was surprisingly crunchy on the ends, looked like this

Was the guineau pig in Peru? That is the only country I’ve heard of that serves it regularly.
