Give it a try. I bet you'll like it. Unlike any liver of anything else. It tastes creamy and mild.

The last I had it was on a hotdog, and boy was that decadent.

Some watery plants, like cucumber, etc. Will eat watermelon though.

Also no dogs/cats. Hate people who eat them. Back home in Vietnam, thieves stealing pets from families and selling it to those shops. Your dog could be running in your yard and somebody would lure it out and drug it, then it's game over. Totally fucked up....

Anyways, durian is an acquired taste. Most people hate it the first time. I did. I felt like throwing up. But if you eat enough of it, you're most likely hooked for life. Especially fresh durian.



My goodnessss!

I really don't like chicken feet, they're so nasty especially if they still have toe-nails.

Peas and durian are the only food I will never eat.. They both smell and taste like vomit to me and will avoid them at all costs. I also tend to avoid cooked carrots, but strangely I love raw carrots and eat them often as snacks. Also, I don't think I'll like eating bugs, but am willing to give it a try so I'll keep them on the maybe list.

I will eat any animal and any part of an animal but only if its prepared properly

Cherry Chocolate - just weird tasting
Cookies with that gummy candy thing in the middle - I'll eat around it
Bitter Melon
Stinky Tofu
Durian
Pork Liver

Don't know what's it call, but Chinese people make this part of the pork into soup and gives off this stench...

Do not kill any animal (chicken, pork, cow etc.) in front of me and cook it in front of me. I will NOT eat it.

Balut looks interesting. I'd like to try it. Funny how we eat the stage before and the fully grown chicken, but anything in between? GROSS!

But you'll eat it if someone else kills it out of sight for you? Way to stick your head in the sand.

haha! I guess it's the moment..This happen when I was in China, they kill the animal right in front of me while screaming..I just don't have the heart to eat it because that sound keeps ringing in my head. Probably because I was 10..

shot an elk before and fried the backstrap while we quatered the hinds

there's nothing really that comes to mind that i detest, i find that alot of people who dont like sushi or are scared to try new things always bring up things like octopus or straight roe etc saying how nasty it is but in reality there isnt much [that ive found anyways] in Japanese food that has a very strong or very unique taste to it and i've ate everything under the sun

i'm not too big on organ meats or tripe though

Organ meats are a no-go for me, tried liver a long time ago, think it was beef liver. Hated the texture and flavour, spit it out right away. Childhood moment scarred me for life, now I can't stand the sight of that stuff haha. Also, I don't like fish, for some odd reason. Only time I'll ever eat it is in sashimi (salmon only LOL) and deep fried from Pajo's.

Also, chicken feet. Yeck. I know some people love it, I just.. can't.

the only thing i wont eat probably is most bugs. like some of them like grasshoppers and smaller insects are fine but probably wouldnt eat like a cockroach, larvae or a centipede.

ive had pretty much a wide variety of strange foods. cod sperm sacks, turtle meat, horse, live fugu, chicken testicles, raw chicken heart, liver, kidneys, skin and meat etc. nothing really surprises me.

i really want to try balut as well but most of my friends don't want to try it with me and in korea, i plan to try sanakji (fresh live octopus), dog, live mudfish/loach hotpot, fermented stingray and pretty much anything that's weird.

i just hate eating yellow/green/red peppers. those things piss me off. oh and bittermelon. fuck bittermelon to the depths of hell.
