    Kangaroo. Tastes like beef, but chewy.

    I ate several things in Hong Kong that my hosts wouldn't identify...whatever they were they were very tasty!

    The only thing I refused to eat was served in a large black cauldron in black bubbling liquid...It was when the locals poked it, grunted something and then ignored it that I decided to pass

    Whatever it was they served us on the opening night party at the Ruckus Big Dogs conf in Spain. There are no words to describe how vile some of it was. Well, there is a couple of words. Fishmongers counter.

    Curried sheep brains.... Tasted okay with the spices but had the consistency of scrambled egg. Dares a dare
