    I'd have to go with uni... raw sea urchin roe, but only because I haven't tried hakarl (shark that's been buried for months and then cured), balut, or lutefisk.

    I love eel though! Especially in sushi.

    Sounds good to me... some of my favorite sausages are intestine (A.K.A. "natural casings") packed with seasoned pork scraps and blood. In fact, one of my favorite Portuguese sausages is MOSTLY blood.

    Hmmm ... some of the afore mentioned are some of my favorite snacks !!!

    Some of the most memorable foods I disliked were normally GOOD foods, only prepared so crappily it was a downright crime.

    Boiled fruit bat....with the fur still attached...in Fiji. Also a bit of "beef stew" which included the jaw, teeth, and again, attached hide, also in Fiji. (I was in the Peace Corps back there in the 1980's.) I also might have eaten an earthworm now & then as a kid to get attention, but haven't done that for YEARS!

    Dang! Philippines, Bali, Fiji, this is the food they have there? These are places I have always want to go to and dive. Do they by chance have McDonalds or Applebees or anything "normal" ?

    So true - and thank goodness. Kansas is a great place to be from! Just not quite as adventurous when it come to eating as some folks.

    Don't worry Becky; it's not like the Philippines have only balut, dino guan and blood pudding to eat! As a matter of fact, the Philippines is arguably the most Westernized Asian country out there. Haven't been there for some time, but I have relatives living there and family visiting there all the time. You'll do fine there, especially if you stick with the resorts!
