    Toss Up?

    I've thought about it and I can't actually decide what the most exotic food I've ever tasted was. I can only list a few that would probably qualify as "exotic" and leave it there as a toss up. Let's see... Squid, octopus, escargot, frog legs, caviar, eel, conch...

    Not Just Any Old Sushi...

    I'm not sure if you would consider sushi exotic, but you would this kind.  It was on a cruise.  For an appetizer, I had a sushi plate with different types of sushi.  They had the "normal" types of sushi like a California roll and one of those salmon...

    This Might Be a Bit Too Much For Some People

    ...I admit it! I've not only tasted "Rudolph", but I liked it and took some more! Reindeer is delicious! I'm sorry if this shocked somebody who doesn't consider reindeer as food but more as Santa's "horsepower".

    Barnacles, Muskox and Seal

    I think the single most exotic thing I have ever tried is a kind of barnacle found on the east coast of Vancouver Island, BC near Tofino/Uclculet. People would go out on these big rocks when the tide is out with a variety of scraping tools (a popular one I saw was made from a...

    That Photo Is Disgusting.

    It looks like whatever it is is vomiting himself out.  Squid was the most exotic thing I have eaten which might be the wrong word.  Sushi I have eaten if you consider that exotic.

    Sea Slug

    Ok, So I Couldn't Actually Bring Myself to Taste It...

    The most exotic food I have ever tasted was something that I actually could not bring myself to try. So we will say this is the most exotic food I have ever been offered. It was so absolutely disgusting that I was doing well not to barf on the table. The girl who brought the dish...

    Tough One

    I don't do anything other than plain old cow, pig, chicken and fish. And I refuse to try internal organs. But my brother hunts and then invites me over for dinner. Once I have finished the meal and complimented his skills he tells me what I have eaten. Kudu, gemsbok, impala...

    New Years Resolution

    my new years resolution was to try and eat more exotic foods. I was thinking how everyone else wants to go on a diet and those just are not for me so why not go in the other direction and eat as much of the wonderful food of the world that I can find. Some of the more exotic...
