1: lamb head;
it's cut length wise and boiled; when done, the skin/fat layer is peeled off and the meat is very fine tasting and a delicacy.
- sheep don't smile or frown, so the head muscles never move much, so they're very delicate and tender and fine tasting.
Overall, i think it tastes much better than chicken.

2: shark meat;
the shark is sawed in pieces and buried in the ground.
it can be eaten after 1 to 3 months after being cut in 1 inch cubes.

when eaten after a 1 month's cure, it's very crunchy and has a little ammonia taste, but there is also a fine "shark" taste to it.
After a 3 months' cure, the meat is very tender, but the ammonia smell is strong enough that one has better pinch his nose before putting it in his mouth; even then there is still a fine shark taste to it.

3: Skyr, an Icelandic dish consisting of curdled milk;
one has to get used to it a little, but it's very good nourishment and tastes quite good.

I never intend to swallow anything weirder than my pride.

i have the weirdest feeling that this thread will not last lots of pages...
people very often tend to be quite conservative about what they eat.

When I was in Hong Kong, I ate pigeon. It was a dish at one of the restaurants in the Hyatt Regency: minced pigeon in butter lettuce.

1- First thing that comes to mind grin is head cheese. I use to eat it all the time when I was a kid, but now I think it's disgusting.

2- Octopus.

Great thread topic!

You asked "what is the weirdest", not "have you ever eaten anything that the majority of Americans would consider weird?" So the thread could go on for a long time with answers like, "I once had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich."

But yeah, I've not really stepped outside of what's considered "normal" food. But I enjoy some odd combinations.

A BLT made with peanut butter instead of mayo.

There's an Italian (at least I was told) treat called an Easter salad, it is a stack of (from the bottom up):

Provolone cheese
Genoa Salami
A circular slice of orange
A slice of hard boiled egg
A black olive
Drizzle with olive oil

You eat it by sliding the stack from the orange up, to one side, and folding it in half so each bite gets a bit of each component.

The coolest thing I have seen was on a cooking/food show. The waiter brought to the table a live cobra. He then gutted the heart in front of him, then served the beating, bloody heart to the customer.

Bottoms up!

I haven't delved into anything too crazy but would gross a lot of people out - tripe, kidneys (veal), liver (duck,chicken), veal tongue. I have no problem eating certain fresh meat and fish/seafood raw.

My favorite food that many people would not consider utilizing in the animal and eating is the marrow found in beef bones. Absolutely divine!

In Korea I used to eat dried baby squids.

Wasn't "Dried Baby Squids" the first track on Negative Orange's industrial music album?
