I guess most of the stuff in Mongolia hehe - oily,fatty,pure mutton mutton n more mutton. Wish they added a bit of spice or condiment to their cuisine. Nightmare for vegetarians and those not keen on gamey meat.

 I vividly remember tasting the 1st meal outside U.Baator at a small eatery. It was this strange noodle which tasted like cardboard I swear! After one bite,all my fellow companions pretended to go out and take photos haha.

I dunt like those ghastly cheap chinese buffets in Australia. Full of fried food or ultra sweet honey chicken or lemon chicken.

I do sometimes have the strangest luck of eating unusual food by mistake but so far have not been offended yet.

I can't stand Ethiopia injera! Injera tastes much better in Ethiopian restaurants in US and UK. Authentic Ethiopian version is too sour!

Ooh! Some actually sound quite scary. Anyone tried HORSE meat Sashimi?

I found it on this article http://www.sojourns.com.sg/blog/asia/top-5-strangest-eats-in-asia/ and yeah, really intrigued yet slightly grossed out. Can anyone tell me what it tastes like?

basashi is really nice. i tried it in kumamoto, where it is the local speciality. never really understood why cows and pigs are ok to eat, and horses aren't. must be an english thing (or anglo-saxon in general).

and yes, balut is nice too. but i admit i went for "early harvest". it has less feathers, and the beak is not that hard yet.

Yes, I've eaten horse sashimi, and also the shirako. Horse sashimi, I ate in Matsumoto, where it is a delicacy. It is like eating raw beef. If I wasn't told, I wouldn't have known I was eating horse.

As for shirako, it is an acquired taste. Ate this one at Tomi Sushi at Parco Marina Bay.

Hahaha...my personal opinion...

1. basashi (ate without knowing)....tasted like normal meat
2. roasted grasshopper/crickets (frankly I'm not sure)....tasted like ikan bilis without tat fishy taste
3. bear meat (ordered by accident)....tasted like normal meat
4. fugu (ordered by accident again)....tasted like normal fish

etc etc...the point is...as long as the food doesnt look disgusting to u and if u didnt know better, they prob just taste like the next chicken/beef/fish.....
