    This question was batted around in an thread this past summer: Weird Food

    My vote is balut, from the Philippines. Never actually ate it, and I thank God I haven't. Google it, or read about it in the linked thread. :p

    Three words: Hard boiled eggs. It's not the taste that makes me sick (although the smell can do that to me sometimes), but mainly it's that d--n rubbery texture. EEEEEW! YUCK!

    Becky beat me to it. Lutefisk. It's sort of like fish-flavored jello. With bones in it. And butter sauce. Doesn't that sound dreamy?

    Not a huge fan of eel, either. Eel anything. Especially sushi. Don't know how people can eat that stuff. And while we are on the subject of sushi, (which I generally love), raw squid. Tastes and feels just like I imagine an inner tube from a bicycle would taste. Also, jellyfish. Before I tried it, I asked the chef what jellyfish tasted like, and he replied: Rubber bands. Mmm!

    A chitterling (chittlins if you're from the south) and turnip green sandwich with mustard.

    Balut, for those who haven't heard of it, is a duck egg eaten at various stages of embryo development. At 12 days it's like a big yolk, more or less, with the circulatory system forming (lots of veins). But, I have to agree with you...the 18-20 day old, three days from hatching has made more than a few people I knew blow chunks. This is probably more a factor that they had already drank 30 beers or so and ate it on a bet.. but it is pretty gross by western standards. The little beak and feet and soft feathers.....mmmmmmm.

    speaking of bad tasting dishes of the Philippines....dino guan...(in the western Visayas that's what it's called). It's made from pig's blood cooked with either the head meat or...and this is the one I almost couldn't swallow...the intestines. It seemed that no matter how much you clean, them the finished product tastes like a barnyard smells. No offence to any of you Pinoys /Pinays out there. I love the place and people but some of the food.........Mabuhay. Hank
