Five of the strangest foods from around the world

#5 – Bull Penis

Also known as bull pizzle, bull penis is a common dish in parts of Asia and Jamaica and is eaten by itself or in soups. In Jamaica bull penis' are called 'cow cods' and in China a bull's penis is considered to be a strong aphrodisiac and is said to have properties similar to Viagra. Personally, if I had to eat one of those things, I'd be struggling to find my libido for a few weeks after! Below is a picture of bull penis, gent's, don't get jealous.

#4 – Fried brain sandwiches

Doesn't this dish sound like something you'd expect to order at a zombie drive through!? A fried brain sandwich is exactly what it says it is, slices of fried brain sandwiched between two slices of bread. It used to be a very popular dish in St. Louis, Missouri however only a few restaurants still serve it there. A heavily battered version of the fried brain sandwich is still a delicacy in Ohio River Valley though.

#3 – Hákarl

Possibly one of the foulest ideas for a dish, Hákarl is the Icelandic word for shark and the meal involves eating rotting shark meat. Sounds delicious huh? The sharks are caught, cut up and then their meat is buried in a chamber and left to decompose naturally for a period of two to six months, so essentially you're eating rotten flesh. Apparently many tourists eat it with brennivin which is a strong alcoholic drink, I can see where they're coming from as I'd have to be hammered to even think about putting that near my mouth! Some say it tastes like strong cheese.

#2 – Fried Tarantulas

Now, I get a bit sensitive over this subject as I have a completely irrational fear of spiders, being in the same room as one makes me giddy and if I were to go anywhere near the town of Skuon in Cambodia, I would be in tears. Locals, and tourists, eat deep fried spiders here. They're usually coated in a mixture of MSG, sugar, salt and crushed garlic and they're fried until the spiders legs are stiff. Tastes have been describes as a cross between chicken and cod, yummy!

#1 – Balut

I love duck and I love eggs, but I don't know whether I could handle a semi developed duckling in an egg. Balut is an everyday snack in Southeast Asia and it consists of a fertilised duck embryo (still in the egg) that's been boiled alive. In most placed an ideal Balut will be 17 days old so that the chicks inside the eggs aren't old enough to have beaks, feathers and claws and the bones won't be fully developed, however, in Vietnam they like to wait until the duck has bones (roughly 19-21 days) that become tender when cooked.

 

Balut photographer Marshall Astor

In Norway they have a dish consisting of Reindeer stomach filled with their last meal (Reindeer moss) - its looks similar to haggis when served, but greener...also look up Lutefisk.

I was surprised that Surstromming didn't make it into the list, but I guess there's only enough room in the list for rotten fish and the Shark won. It's worth googling though for the QI episode where they covered it and the youtube videos of people trying to eat it.

Cow Cod Soup
Grey Beard
I lived and worked in Jamaica for a couple of years. Nothing wrong with Cow Cod Soup. You must never question what you find in the bottom of the soup mug!! Best eaten in low light conditions but quite tasty.

They sell Sulze in Germany, which is a cold meat Jelly with Brains I am told. Not big into that myself, as I worry about the disease risks after all the hype about CJD, etc.
