However, not all of the ethnic food is affordable, if we talk about a spring roll it can also be done, but snakes, larvae, worms. But people who are fond of such bizarre food never miss the narrowness stories of the fans of the international creepy food. Here's a serious trail.
We have collected some of them here. Bon appetite.


1. Snake Wine, Bizarre food in Southeast Asia

In Southeast Asia, China and in Vietnam it is believed that snake wine, obtained from the whole body of the reptile body fluid, or its body fluids, is an excellent reconstitution.

2. Centenary Egg, Bizarre food in China

Centenarian egg available in Turin is great. Mica is 100 years old indeed: at most 100 days (about three months). It is the time required by the traditional Chinese method, which involves the storage of duck eggs (rarely hen) in a pack of water, salt, ash, lime and coal. At the end of the process of fermentation, the album takes on the typical intense brown color, sometimes tending to violet, while the yolk is dark green with concentric black circles.

3. Fugu, Bizarre food in Japan

Do not underestimate the ball fish. In the Italian imaginary, one could never imagine that such a cute animal could really be so dangerous (by the dead, among other things). I'm talking about fugu, one of the most famous dishes of Japanese gastronomic tradition. In fact, fugu can be lethal if some body parts are not properly removed. In Japan, a special knife and, above all, a government license to handle this dish are needed. Nonetheless, from 2000 to today there are 20 deaths due to fugu consumption.

4. Fried Spotted, Bizarre food in Cambodia

"Fried is a good sauce," as the food lover say in Florence. In this case, the fried tarantula is served with a lime sauce and black pepper, which seems to be quite (good) and according to Cambodia's Top Tables by Clive Graham-Ranger and Luu Meng, they are sold over 200 portions per week.

5. Witchetty Grub, Bizarre food in Australia

Do you ever have wooden larvae, white, licked and rather big? We may not seem particularly inviting, but for Australian Aborigines the witchetty grub season (the name of the larvae in question) is greeted with great celebrations. They are generally consumed alive and raw, and are a source of protein.

6. Shiokara, Bizarre food in Japan

A shovel of squid fermented in their own bowels, and fear passes you. The smell of this traditional japanese dish, which takes the name of shiokara, is so strong that it is often "thrown down" as quickly as possible and then made to follow by a short whiskey.

Jessica Simpson is far behind Jessica Simpson's grasshoppers in a Thai market with obvious disgust. Indeed: usually fried or served with lime and garlic, grasshoppers are now a rather popular dish, that is a Mexican restaurant chain.

8. Sannakji, Bizarre food in Corea

"Catch me if you can," is the case to say it. The snakji, from traditional Korean cuisine, is a typical example of minimal manipulation of raw material: the octopus is cleaned, cut into small pieces and served that still slices. Some mention the risk, vague, of suffocation after eating it.

It's the "tequila with the worm" carcinoma. At tequila all the glory (rightly), and no one ever remembers the worm: escamoles, so are called, the Candida larvae collected from the plants of the blue agave, from which the tequila is distilled. The Mexicans affectionately call them "caviar insects".

11. Hakarl, Bizarre food in Iceland

In very cold areas (and Iceland undoubtedly it is) drying was a rather widespread conservation method, especially to preserve large animals. This is the case of the shark, which is buried for a few months and left to ferment in its own body fluids, then extracted, cut into pieces and hung dry. This preparation takes the name of hacharl.

16. Black Ivory Coffee, Bizarre food in Thailand

The reason why a coffee blend can cost $ 1.100 a pound has to be really special. In fact, in the case of Black Ivory, it can be said that its grains are manually harvested from the Thai elephants to which they are eaten and foretold.

The whalebone, originally Filipino but spread throughout Southeast Asia, is a duck or hen egg fertilized and boiled in its shell shortly before its hatch when the embryo inside it is almost completely formed.

Although it is perceived as a threatened species by the government of India yet you may find some restaurants serving it.

This delicious, tangy chutney is a much desired after dish by the local tribal. Red ants are more than just a painful insect to the Bastar tribes. They also play an important role in food and medicine.
Villagers grind Red Aunt into a paste to make chutney which is famous as chapura. After the ants are captured they are carried to the kitchen to crumble in a pestle and mortar with more ingredients probably like chilly, ginger and salt. The bodies of ants consist of a kind of acid which is believed to have useful medicinal qualities.
