What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

  1. Tarantula in Cambodia. It was black-fried over a naked flame at the market. The hairy, crispy, crunchy, hollow legs weren’t the problem, it was the wet, yellow, generally disgusting interior that almost made me throw up all over the ‘fresh’ produce at Phnomh Penh market.

    Never again…

  2. That sounds GROSS. But it’s amazing how being in another country will make you do something you wouldn’t normally do. You become much more adventurous. My friend, Lukas, had eaten a lot of crazy stuff in pretty much every country in Asia and claims he was being “culturally sensitive” in the sense that he didn’t want to offend his hosts. Do you think you, too, were being culturally sensitive, or did you actually really just want to to try deep fried tarantula?

  3. I don’t think it was about cultural sensitivity, more that I didn’t see in the foreseeable future the opportunity to eat fried tarantula arising, so I took my chance. And it makes a good story.
