The weirdest dishes from around the world
If you've been itching to travel but aren't exactly the adventurous type when it comes to food, these pictures are sure to cool your wanderlust...
Sweden - Surstromming is herring fermented with just enough salt to keep it from spoiling. It's sold almost exclusively in a tin can nowadays. Good thing too, that means you can always bring it on the go with you!
Southeast Asia - Bird's nest soup (this dish is actually mostly made up of bird saliva...)
Israel (and many other countries) - Grasshoppers are typically fried and served with all sorts of delcious sauces. I guess?
Mexico - Escamol is known as "insect caviar" and is made up of edible ant larvae. Appetizing...
Japan - Shiokara is sashimi served in a dough made with the fish's guts. And it's served raw. Yum?
Scotland - Haggis is a traditional dish made with sheep's heart, liver, and lungs. It's seasoned with onions, oats and kidney fat. Enjoy your meal!
Japan - Shirako is essentially an animal's reproductive organs. That's all. And it looks like it's very creamy, if you're into that sort of thing?
Greenland - Muktuk is a traditional dish made with whale skin and flesh. It's served raw and preserved in vinegar.
Eastern Europe - Khash is a kind of stew made with a cow's head and feet. Mmmmmno thanks...
China - 100-year eggs are a delicacy in the Middle Kingdom. I'll take them fresh, personally.
Canada - Jellied moose nose. Those Canadians may be nice, but their choice of cuisine is a little... suspect.
Mexico - Tequila with a worm inside. Apparently you reach a whole new level if you eat it. I wouldn't know, and frankly I don't want to find out.
