    Oddly enough, I won't eat a doner kebab, as when I was at university, I saw deliveries to a few kebab shops on the same road as my digs, and new enough each spit of kebab came in bags that said "incinerate only" on them, from that moment on I have never touched a doner since. Chicken Kebabs and Lamb Kofte's...different story!

    Hmm that is pretty disturbing, also its not quality food is it but that still doesnt stop me from having one sometimes.

    @glensc: Pickled cockroach.. doesnt sound nice, in texture or taste.

    Has anyone heard about or been to one of those places in japan that serve stuff like a still beating heart of a frog..

    Does Lego count? I'm sure I ate some as a child, didn't do me much harm.

    On the real food front, I ate all sorts at a Cajun resteraunt in texas. Snake, squid, crayfish... I'll eat almost anything now, but not tried brains. Don't think I want to either.

    Are there places over here you can get some of this stuff?

    Al I've tried is an ostrich burger and I liked it, healthy too. Oh, and sushi but these days that's not so weird.

    Strangest thing I've ever eaten, when I was in Singapore, some "friends" (lol) made me try a durian fruit ..

    for those who don't know what it is, the second result down in Google.co.uk when you search for durian fruit states "Durian Fruit can best be described as having a succulent, creamy filling but smelling like stinky socks" what it doesn't say is that the smell is that over powering, it kind of tastes as it smells! lurvley!

    Bah... though I go to Kenya regularly I have never eaten "bushmeat" (zebra/impala/kudu etc.) as it has been illegal there for some time. Think even croc is illegal - though farmed ostrich is available it's ~40 quid/kilo. Stick to mbuzi choma I think (roast goat).
