Posted on 20 April 2018 by admin (0)

Each country has its own cuisine. Food that you will not really find in any other country. And, when you are visiting this country, you might be wondering if the food is safe to eat. Or, the names are so foreign that you don’t know what you are ordering. But, this is what makes traveling and exploring so exciting. These are some of the strange foods from all parts of the world that you might not want to try when traveling.

Tuna eyeballs

Do you like that your food is watching you while you eat? Then you should give Tuna eyeballs a try. This is a tasty meal in Japan that you can purchase in any supermarket or that you can order in a restaurant. Even, if the locals are saying that this is a tasty snack, not everyone is in the mood for food that is watching you while you are eating it.

Black pudding

Don’t confuse the name. This isn’t a pudding. This is actually just animal blood that is rolled in bread crumbs and eaten with other food like rice and vegetables. This is a dish that you can find in more than one country, so be careful if you are ordering black pudding and think that you are going to get a chocolate pudding. Especially, if you aren’t in the mood for eating animal blood. Not something that most people would want to try.


These are one of those foreign meals that you can pronounce. And, if you can’t pronounce it, you will not know what you are going to be served. This is a dish from Iceland. A dish that most tourists don’t like and saying that this is the worst thing they have ever eaten. But, what are you actually eating?

Hákarl is the rotting carcass of a Greenland or basking shark. The shark is buried underground to make sure that the shark is safe to eat. After a while, the carcass is hanged to dry and then cut into strips. Not really a great tasting meal. Especially if you don’t like eating rotten fish.

Jing Leed

Another foreign name. A dish from Thailand that might not sound strange. Until they are serving it. Then, you will see that this isn’t a normal dish or treat. This is actually just grasshoppers that were fried. There are different ways that people are preparing the grasshoppers. This might be something that some people might want to try, but most people will not be in a good mood when they are served grasshoppers on a plate.

Fried spider

Huge, ugly spiders that are getting spiced and fried. There is no surprise in this meal because you are going to see what you are buying. This is a treat that you can purchase on the street. If you are in the mood for the fried spider, you should visit Cambodia and ask where you can find tasty, fried spider.

Strange food. Different cultures and countries are serving food that is normal to them, but strange to you. And, to make it worse, sometimes you don’t even know what you are eating. This is just a couple of the strange food that you can find in the world. There are a hundred others to try.
