Unusual Foods

One of the best things about traveling around the world would be trying foods from other places. What we might think to be weird and unusual would be seen as good in other places. Every nation/country has different cultures and each culture has foods that vary from each other. Food and tastes have changed over the years, food that are seen as good in America, would be viewed differently in other places, it all depends on the culture.

An unusual food that I’ve found interesting would be the silkworm larvae, aka Beondegi in South Korea. It is a popular food snack sold in the streets, and found in grocery stores. I have not tried them, but for me personally they don’t look too appetizing as they are bugs and I don’t like bugs. I would like try it as to experience the taste, but I do know that they are definitely a good source of protein. The picture below is what silkworm pupae is.

Another one of some unusual foods would be the cobra snake eaten in Vietnam. Apparently eating the heart of a cobra snake while it is beating supposedly gives you superhuman vitality. After beheading the snake, the chief drops the heart into a shot glass of it’s own blood and you drink it while it still pumps. Now that seems scary in it’s own way, but I would still like to try.
