I think weird food is also a type of cultural imprint. It makes each country unique to other countries in the world. Rule one of geography and culture is to not judge other cultures from one's own cultural perspective; if some of the children in the poor country don't consume insects (which are high in Zinc and low in fat) they'd be lucky to get any protein at all.

I think the weirdest food in Vietnam is " trứng vịt lộn". While many Vietnamese people really like it because it good for their health, foreigner people don't like because they think it is disgusting. Especially, " Trứng vịt lộn" is ranked in the top 10 most terrible food in the world.

The weirdest food is rat.That is food that makes its home in the fields of Vietnamese country,especially in the Mekong Delta.Maybe eating rat sounds a bit odd but it is very tasty.The meat is solf.So many people like it than beef and pork.

I was impressed by Hakarl of Iceland. I think it's hard to try because of its smell. We have similar kind of food in Viet Nam named" mắm" it is a kind of souce that people use everyday. "mam" is salty and has a typical flavor if you can stand it's smell.

The weirdest food you've ever tried is Grilled Bananas (Chuoi Nuong). It's is a type of Vietnamese dessert .Grilled bananas stand out because of its distinctive taste and the perfect combination of banana and coconut milk. This food was quite strange for me when I tried it at the first time ,but now i find it an acquired taste.

Blood soup is the weirdest dish in Vietnam and it has a special ingredient. Yes, that would be blood. Commonly, it is duck blood, but it can even be pig or goose blood. People eat dish with coriander, mint, and pepper, along with spicy chili, minced cooked meat and organs. When I tried, the color of blood scared me but the tasty was better than I thought.

I think we can find the best foods in the Islamic countries like Turkey, Iran,Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries. They have food obsession. I have lots of friends in Europe; they believe most of Europeans eat good food but sometimes their food is very smelly or raw like fish, steak, etc and they don't care about food as much as other countries.

But about other foods, I don't understand why people eat that. For example, fugu. It's not healthy and may be really dangerous if not cooked properly. Why do people want to play with their lives?

Hello.
I actually understand your feelings, but I think you're wrong. Insects are also animals. They also have meat. If it's proven that it is healthy, why should anyone refuse to it them? But we're all unique. Maybe you had a bad experience of eating them, i don't know.
P.S. I live in Ukraine, we don't eat insects here:)

Every country has its own dishes and traditions, but sometimes they can be very weird. Here in Morocco, we have a typically Moroccan, very greedy dish, which is made of beef feet, generally prepared during special occasions or during the periods of big cold. Originally, this recipe was prepared by the Moroccan Jewish families, which served it with hard-boiled eggs. In time, the recipe filled out, and today, we are in the habit of preparing it with chickpeas and raisins either with some crushed wheat or some rice. Every region of Morocco has it own way to prepare this dish that all my family like, including my father and my brother, except me. I think it's too heavy for my stomach.

Hey all,
many of you say just "yuck!!", I know but we need to be aware of different cultures and customs existing in the world. In fact, some may think "yuck" when they know cup noodles & junk food is a kind of food!

Yuck for noodles?? Never. I love them. But again. We all belong to different cultures.
But some foods like that one with lungs and heart of the sheep was literally something I couldn't even think of. Oh dear.

Yeah, I agree. Many people might think that way. And BTW, while we say 'yuck' to these things, we actually don't know what goes in our junk foods! I read a few messages about things that go in chicken nuggets, and I was like, 'YUCK!'

Errr... It is really, really yucky, but the thing that goes in chicken nuggets is...
Pig skin!!! Just a bit, of course, though I'm not sure. It could be a hoax too.
But I'm sure of this, chefs do spit on our food if we complain. I've read about it, and my friend's dad, who's a chef, said the same. He thinks it's a yucky habit, and always stops his men when his boss isn't around.
And of course, there were hoaxes that blood was mingled in ketchup. Geez, I was a huge fan of ketchup myself. But I stopped having it after I heard that news. :(((

Oh dear, thanks for letting me know that. Not surprisingly, I was aware that chicken nuggets didn't actually taste chicken-sh!
