Now this is just too much
 
To all those yanks I've accused of having the world's weirdest food tastes, I apologise.
Surely you have nothing that out-weirds this:

That is weird, but every culture has it's own seemingly odd foods.

Oh, come on Mick,
don't knock it until you've tried it!
I also read about it in this mornings paper, and looking to buy some just to try it, it sounds interesting, something that one needs to experience.

I have tried Vegemite - I don't think the taste could be hidden in any food. I think you guy's down under rave about it just to get us on the other side of the globe to try it ;)

Re: Now this is just too much
 
I genuinely do like vegemite.
(not sayin' I wouldn't talk it up to get you to try it :D)

And I like chocolate. But the thought of the two together?
I'd try it if a I came across it, but I still reckon its weird.

Still, like stonecutter says, every culture has its own oddities.

I just came from the feast of Santo Nino. There is no doubt Filipinos can cook, and I had a great time.

But would I ever try balut? No way.

My mate volunteered to eat one the other day, I refused to even watch.

I read he reviews and one stuck in my mind, it basically said it was much like salted caramel and for that reason I'd give it a go even though I don't like Vegemite.
As for Balut, no way I can even talk myself into having another one. I've been in Philippines and eaten one and they come up easier than they go down. Very embarrassing :o

You ate one?:eek: You are a deadset legend. :cool:

The tucker at the feast of Santo Nino was brilliant today. No Balut, thank goodness.
Considering there was nearly the entire Filipino population of South Australia there, there wouldn't have been enough duck eggs in the state anyway.

The other thing that was missing this year was the cooked pig's blood.
Last year, I passed it by because I thought it was cooked squid ink, and I didn't think to ask anyone what it really was. I later found out it was the blood from the BBQ'd pig, and I wished I'd tried it. Maybe next year.

I gotta ask my mate's wife about the rice. It was some long grained type I've never had before.

Blah...I'll leave that grossness on the shelf with durian.

I'm a Scott by heritage so black pud which is basically pig blood soaked into barley and made into a sausage. The family don't like it but what tha. Me and my bro get together ... Fried with eggs .. Our wife's hate us.you will not get a kiss for days!
I've travelled in S/E Asia for years. They say the Chinese will eat anything with four legs ... Except the table and the chairs.
The rest of S/E Asia don't count legs. If it swings through the forest, crawls or slithers on the forest floor, its food.
And you think you would not eat the little dried shrimp and little fish in the S/E Asia markets .... Think again. It ill come up with the street food .
With philipino food just eat ... And ask later ...as you probably have found out , it is made with sharing in mind. Things like Balut are well just like feeding Vegemite to foreigners !
I still remember that Balut to this very day... I've never been so embarrassed , I hope it was the Sam mig.

Well you are well travelled. You know about the the durian ? Have you really tried one? The king of fruits they call them. They are the Stilton, the blue vein, of the fruit world. I would have thought you would have appreciated them.
Allthough the MRT the Mass rail transport in singapore has banned them for many years....not everyone likes the odour
