Food? I like food! Especially strange, unique and obscure foods. There is not a single type of cuisine I don’t like — just some that I like less than others. And I believe that when people say they don’t like a certain region’s food its only because they haven’t had the right dish or a decent chef.
Just always remember when trying new foods do not ask what you are eating until you have finished your plate.
“Old Village Chief To Amuse”
Raw Cobra Organs
Jogja, Indonesia Seconds after killing a cobra I was handed a couple raw organs and a glass full of blood and torn up muscle tendons. It actually did not taste bad at all. However I didn’t feel any of the often-reputed aphrodisiac effects.
Solo, Indonesia I’ve only had this once — it was very tough and hard to chewy. Maybe it was just the way it was cooked…or because it was an old dog 😛
[ My apologies but unfortunately I took this photo on a friend’s phone and cannot find it now. ]
Many cities, Indonesia Very soft and chewy. Often can be found accompany ayam dishes in Indonesia.
While these are certainly not all the new dishes I tried during the course of 2013, they were certainly some of the tastiest!
