    pffffahahaha

    you think that's bad

    how about the one where you take a live baby bird

    feed it until it is too fat to move

    drown it in fine wine

    and then pop it into your mouth and kee-runch

    people who ate this dish would put a cloth over their heads, to "hide their faces from god"

    That, that' can't be true. o_O

    Tripe actually doesn't taste like much. It's just a little stingy and chewier than noodles. It does look kind of weird in the bowl, but most of the Pho shacks I go to tailor at least half their business to Vietnamese ex-pats who must be craving that back-home goodness.

    Like I said, I wouldn't go out of my way to order it, but if it's there I'll eat it. But I'm probably the least fussy eater I've ever met. The only food I genuinely don't like is chocolate, and I can still tolerate milk chocolate in doses.

    Stink heads!
    The dish, by modern culinary standards, is nothing but rotten salmon heads, albeit treasured tribal fare. Imagine, a bucket load of large King Salmon heads left outside during the warm summer months for a few weeks….Outside the native Alaskan culture the stink head topic is nothing but a novelty, but health-wise the tradition of stink head consumption poses a real and continued challenge to regional Alaskan healthcare professionals faced with frequent and, sometimes serious, totally avoidable botulism cases.

    And then of course there's snake wine:
    There are two varieties of snake wine:

    Steeped: A large venomous snake can be placed into a glass jar of rice wine, sometimes with smaller snakes and medicinal herbs and left to steep for many months. The wine is drunk as a restorative in small shots or cups.
    Mixed: Body fluids of snake are mixed into wine and consumed immediately in the form of a shot. Snake blood wine is prepared by slicing a snake along its belly and draining its blood directly into the drinking vessel filled with rice wine or grain alcohol. Snake bile wine is done through a similar method by using the contents of the gall bladder.

    When I lived in Hong Kong there was a shop/stall outside my apartment that would sell the Mouse Wine every couple of weeks. I imagine a whole bottle is quite expensive so people would just buy a shot glass of the stuff. Fucking creepy.
