    I work with a bunch of guys from the PI and they are always talking about Balut, but so for I have yet to find anyone of them who have actually tried it.

    Right you are! Aussies are smart they sell the Fosters to us and keep the good stuff to themselves.

    Yep, found that out the first time we asked for a Fosters in Australia...the bartender actually said: "No mate, we export that <insert expletive here> to the Americans and keep the good stuff for ourselves."

    OK...what is Marmite or Vegemite?

    I spent my summers and weekends growing up on my grandparents cattle ranch. Every spring, we'd have mountain oysters scrambled with eggs and onions. I still like them.

    I guess the strangest thing I ever ate was possum and raccoon stew. Didn't know it until after the fact, it wasn't too bad. Aligator is good.

    Softshell crabs.

    It's not very unusual, but It's certainly weird. I mean, really. Take this weird disgusting sea bug that lives in garbage, then fry it and eat it whole. Um.. yum!

    As for unusual, alligator on a stick.

    Soft shell crabs are quite nice, how about pickled (uncooked) crabs, a korean favorite.

    Another korean and japanese Fave is raw sea urchin, (UMI) i had once and only just managed to keep it down, now know to avoid the 'orange stuff' in sushi bars.

    But the class one was Raw lobster in China, my hosts sent the first one back because despite its tail being separate from the body and now cut into chunks on a bed of ice , the lobster was no longer moving. A second one then appreared prepared as before but with the feelers still twitching, yum yum.

    The hardest experience was in another korean restaurant where an assistant (read rather cute girl) shovels food into your mouth for you. I didnt get chance to see what was coming at me, but basically it had the consistency of phlegm, and in my mind someone elses.
