You replied to your own opening post just to make an eating-out-a-popular-eccentric-80s-singer gag?

I doff my cap to you sir. *doffs cap*.

I don't think I've eaten anything 'weird'. I'm Scottish, so I've ate Haggis, that's pretty weird. And minging.

I'm not very adventurous when it comes to food, I'm quite a wuss actually.

I've eaten nettles before.

And kangaroo, ostrich, springbok, and zebra. The latter being my favourite of them all.

I accidently drank pigs blood once, gave me the shits. I can't recommend it.

I've eaten crocodile, kangaroo and horse. However these may only be classed as weird in UK culture, same with all the bugs they eat in eastern asia i suppose. I eat enough bugs when i'm running/cycling!

I like horse, when i see my pal in Switzerland we always dine on them.

Some crickets, locusts and a cockroach. Locusts were a bit tasteless, the others weren't too bad.

I've eaten Ostrich steak before, but the weirdest for me would be snails. Not that they tasted of anything mind, at least nothing I could taste over all the garlic anyway.

I'm sure I'll regret posting this but I recall trying my poop when I was a child.

Edit: just realised this thread is titled 'best' weird thing and not 'weirdest' thing.

Not too sure if itís the best but the most challenging in that looking at it I had minor qualms but thought sod it when in RomeÖor Vietnam - Balut.

Iíll try most things once, Iím almost certain I had Dog in Vietnam too; Iíve a photograph somewhere of a couple of barbequed/smoked dogs on the back of a motorcycle, looked like beef jerky.

As I consider horse, haggis, kangaroo and frog legs (yes, they DO taste like chicken, albeit about 100 time more succulent) to all be nommers, I don't think of any of them as being weird. I've also had the "usual" ostrich, crocodile (though not had alligator), reindeer etc etc. I've also had snails, but to me it's just like eating bits of tasteless rubber, but easier to chew.

I suppose the weirdest thing I've actually eaten is sheep brains in black butter sauce - me and my sister are the first non-Welsh generation in our family, so to us it was a bit weird when our grandparents had that for Sunday tea, but it was quite a regular event and quite normal for Welsh people in their 70s and 80s to be eating that as late as the 1980s. Actually, sheep brain is rather tasteless. The other weird-weird thing I've had is chocolate covered ants in Gibraltar - obviously being so close to North Africa, there's a lot of African influence on some of the food in Gibraltar, especially when it comes to snacks (I bought these in an otherwise very British looking newsagent and they were just in with all the other "normal" bagged sweets and chocolates and were similarly packaged). However, they weren't really the "best" - the ants, I thought, were actually quite tasteless (bit of a theme here, although I understand they are quite bitter if eaten without anything else) and merely provided a crunch to a chocolate which tasted like cheap cooking choc, so a bit bleurgh.

I suppose I'd have to go for frog legs, then.

The problem I have is that pretty much every animal I look at = food, with the exception of cats and dogs. I'd be lying if I said I'm not curious and wouldn't try cat or dog (not that I would ever find myself in a position to try them - I doubt the wife would ever agree to a holiday anywhere in Asia!), but even if I liked them, I wouldn't make a habit of eating other carnivorous mammals. That's how nasty-nasty diseases start.

Also, I understand, those of us who have eaten any pre-packaged salami type cured meats (particularly mortadella) as far back as the mid 90s that were NOT from Italian or Spanish delis have almost certainly consumed donkey without realising it...

Is it? I never really thought about it but I suppose bad things would happen if you got involved in this. What kind of diseases (I'm just curious, not planning on going out and eating a bear or anything)

I've eaten a ghost chilli sauce but I'm not sure I'd count that as "weird."

I've tried kangaroo meat, and the proper stuff not the crap they serve in 'Walkabout', that was pretty nice actually!

Part of haggis is a sheep's stomach, a part of an animal that you don't normally eat, so I'd consider that to be weird. Especially if you get to say 'brains'* which is a delicacy in some countries


*I know you didn't ultimately choose brains, though
