Everyone knows that to immerse yourself in a culture, there are a lot of posts you can make, the most important of which is tasting the popular foods or foods scattered in the streets, which are sold by the street vendors, in order to get a unique tourist experience, but you must beware as some contain the strangest things that are eaten.
Rat wine - china
A glass of wine is very good on a warm, quiet night, but what about wine made from small mice? This is what Merlot did when he stole the little mice and fermented them in rice wine to keep them stored for a whole year, then he drank and is said to be a healthy tonic, safe to drink and helps in the treatment of asthma.
Snail - Britain
A lot of food is nice to eat on the beach like ice cream, but the English have another taste as they search in the sand for small snails and boil them with salt or vinegar before serving it and with its sticky appearance and small slippery things inside it to reach the hot spot inside.
Egg duck (Baloot) - Philippines
Boiled eggs? Strange money in that? That is the eggs of the embryo of the duck, which is boiled while it is still alive, where it is put in the nursery for 20 days before it is cooked.
Shark - Iceland
We talk here about the rotten dish of shark, although although it is poisonous when eaten raw, they wine it for centuries because of the urea and ammonia in its tissues, and before eating it the shark is processed and left to decompose for a few months before cutting its rubbery meat and eating it.
Eyeballs Tuna - Japan
Those eyeballs that are boiled and seasoned with soy sauce and rice wine that make you think you are eating oysters with their taste and sticky texture so ignore that you are about to eat an eyeball as the Japanese are making the most of all of the tuna parts.
Rocky Mountain Oysters - USA
The strange thing about this oyster is that it is not an oyster at all, but rather it is a dish of the testicle of cattle, pigs or sheep that are peeled and dipped with flour, then fried with oil and served especially to the farmers on their farms who found it a rich and distinctive meal when they were unable to obtain food.
