Worst food ever? (1 Viewer)

I don’t know.  I eat all manner of sea creatures happily with two exceptions: sea urchin and sea cucumber. Texture and flavor both really put me off. I don’t mind so much if it’s a flavor that’s part of a dish, but if I get the texture of sea urchin with the flavor, I definitely won’t enjoy it. 
Tastes like iodone to me.

 
Tastes like the ball sweat off a manatee to me. 
What kind of sociopath decided to serve sea urchin to other people anyway?   "Hey, see that thing with venomous spikes?   I'm gonna dive down there and pick it up, then I'm gonna smash it open and see what's inside it.   Ooh, gooey yellow reproductive organs!  Tastes like the chef dripped his sweat into some fish semen.  Plate that #### up!"

 
I've eaten a lot of unusual foods, mainly in China.  Ate Braised Sea Cucumber probably 15 years ago or more; still gag a little thinking about it.

Probably that chick from The Shape of Water. 

 
Never was much a fan of Fruit Bat.  Roasted or Fried.  Had the texture of what I assume a large dragonfly would be like.  Used to be a place in Lutz, FL called Hot Rod's BBQ that sold it. Can't imagine why they didn't make it.

 
While googling bat soup, I came across this gem:

  • Kiviak from Greeland: this Inuit dish involves stuffing little auk birds into a freshly disemboweled seal. The pelt is then sutured up and left to ferment for several months, after which the intestinal fluids are sucked out from the birds and used a sauce.

My Mom used to make liver and onions that looked and smelled as horrible as you could imagine, her fatburgers, meatloaf and stuffed peppers were also spectacular failures as well.  Love my Mom, woman could bake with the best of them but my God she ruined more ground beef than anyone on the planet.

A hungry person is Japan I think.

This seems like the food equivalent of those fictitious sex acts on urban dictionary 

 
braunschweiger is amazing
My mom didn't dare tell us it was liver and we loved it.  Always had it on saltines with cheese on the side.  Still love it.  

Note:  worked with a guy that used to work at a big meat factory in Cincinnati (Kahn's).  He said once he saw it being made he could never eat it again. 

I didn't care.

Monkey brain is not popular Cantonese cuisine. Not even in China.

It's virtually flavorless and has texture of jello. Not sure what they big deal is.

 
Cottage Cheese is atop my  list per a previous post.  Also on my list:  Liver, Curry, Bell Peppers (Not a huge fan, if mixed in a fajita, maybe a couple.  green, red or yellow),  
 

 
Wow!  There are some seriously picky people here.  I saw plenty of nasty things posted that I would agree with but some others are pretty common foods enjoyed by most people.

Head cheese is one I can't do again.

Rocky Mountain Oysters has to be top 5.
I was surprised it wasn't mentioned earlier.  I absolutely love them.  My in-laws are farmers so always have access to them.  I was grossed out by them the first time I heard of them but I found out they're delicious.  We eat them lightly battered and fried though, maybe that's why they're so good.

 
Has to be gefilte fish in a landslide.  Looks terrible, smells terrible.  I mean, why?
I love gefilte fish.  I sometimes buy it even when it isn't a holiday.  Throw on some super hot horseradish, it makes a great combo.  

That said, at both my family's holiday celebrations and my wife's family's holiday celebration, (both sides Jewish) I am the only one under 70 who eats gefilte fish, including a group of 8 adults between the age of 34 - 46 and 10 children between the ages of 5 - 15.

I honestly thought this was one of those "country-folk scaring the city slickers" type things.  

I didn't really think people ate them.  ?
