I have eaten 2 of the items you wont' try:

1:, it is nothing like a snail. The meat from an abalone is tough. My father gets these from the ocean and he cuts them and fries them in a batter. They are really, really good.

2. Eel, I have had eel at many sushi bars and it is really good, too.

Oh, I like oysters,too...but I have only had the kind that are either deep fried or smoked. I haven't tried the raw oyster on a half shell. The deep fried and smoked have a different texture, they are not slimy like snot. I like the smoked oysters on pizza.

It's amazing, some of the things we eat, no? You really ought to try the expensive whiskey, though. I highly recommend it. :D :D :D

bakersbakery said...

I agree with Wendy, eel is really really good!

i'd like to hear the eatin' snake story.

Deneen said...

Anonymous-the snake story is nothing special-some restaurant in Florida (Ft. Lauderdale to be exact) had fried gator or croc, whatever and fried snake and were going around having people try it-and yes, they both tasted like freaking chicken!

Linda said...

I can't pronounce 3/4 of the things on the list, and I never eat anything I can't pronounce.

Linda F. said...

Hi, Deneen! I'll be putting this on my blog. Fun! I'll have to add a new parameter though. Since I've quit eating meat, some will be bold AND crossed out! LOL!

Slick said...

I've never even heard of some of these things!

Steak tartare?? What in the world...

Deneen said...

Oh for gawd's sake, Slick, it's raw steak basically-"google it"-you really must try to get past the Mason-Dixon Line on occasion.

noricum said...

Raw steak mixed with raw egg. I'd pass even if I wasn't allergic to eggs. (I have no interest in raw eggs, and the bit of raw steak I tried just didn't turn my crank.)
