I guess it’s better to try this shit and actually have some evidence before stating an opinion
You only live once!
Ps…. rattlesnake in northern mexican mountains is also great]]>
I just wanted to add a few more weird Korean foods:
1) Silkworm larva. They’re boiled in a big pot, and their odor is one thing I can count on to gross out any and all of my friends who come visit.
2) Sparrow. Yes, as in the little bird. I think it’s much less common now than it was in the past. You’re supposed to just crunch through the whole thing, although the head was left out of the eating in my group.
3) Cow or pig intestines. It’s normally fried on a pan at your table.
4) As aforementioned, chicken cast-offs. I’d like to add chicken gullets, simply because the Korean name threw me off the first time. Literally translated, it’s something like “poop house”.
And as an aside, is it an East Asian thing to believe in certain foods as “good for your skin”? Impossible beauty marketing seems to thrive in Korea. Example? “Drink this corn husk tea! It’ll give you cheekbones/melt away chipmunk cheeks!” (Rough translation as they actually like to use the term “V-line”.)]]>
Dried Fish Floating Bladder – Love this in the steamboat – chicken stock, cabbage, fishballs, meatball, mushrooms, sea cucumber and the fish floater. Yum.
Yesh – I love sea cucumber as well.
