Ha ha , good one.
nattou, even though it is a kind of staple food in the region where my wife grew up.
'cuz when food smells like that you're supposed to throw it out.
all my kids eat it; they need to wait until I'm finished with my lunch first though!
Never had a Big Mac. Never bothered because it always looked too synthetic, not like real food but almost like it was made of plastic.
I got another one:
shark fin soup
but it's not about the taste/smell; it's about the fact that sharks reproduce really slowly, and the fishermen just catch them, whack the fins off and throw the rest back into the ocean...
I think this is the only dish that I'll give ya the stink-eye for if you order it when I'm at the table.
Pretty harmless fare if you ask me. It’s a miracle food when I can’t stand the smell of anything and it is imperative that I get a little sustenance.
Yeah that Vegomite is nasty ****, but Vegemite is mothers' milk.
Road kill, Scorpion, Snake, Pigs Anus (excluding sausages).
well, if I was really hungry I would catch this Goanna who drops by for a visit a few times a week....
throw him on some coals and cook him up... tastes like chicken, they say...
that's if he doesn't run me down and try and eat me.....
What have I never eaten? Sashimi.
Why? Because I don't eat straight from the bait bucket.
Aussies lovee their seafood more than our good steaks. However some are too expensive. A good example is Abalone, which is a shell fish, like an oyster but twenty tmes the size. Abalone divers make millions as they all go to Japan where they sell for squillions of yen. Yet hardly any Aussie has ever tasted one out of our 24 million population, a fraction may have, but they'd be the exceptionally wealthy to find a restaurant that sells them and have enough to pay. I've never even seen them on any menu and don't know the price.
I use to go down to Elliston to surf in the 80's, we knew a bunch of guys who lived there... including a few ab divers/boat crew... we managed to sample a few back then...
yeah, they make the big bucks... diving with those big sharks at times...
on on our west coast? I used to live in Ceduna and surfed Cactus Beach for three years in the late 70s.! A mate of mine ended up owning the caravan park there at Elliston- he 's still there.
cool, I was in Cactus over NY 76/77.... bluddy hot too ...
I have never eaten:
Beef liver (but chicken livers, yes!)
Brains (but tongue, yes)
Tofu (Not sure what it is)
Soy products, Chai Tea Latte. Vegan meat flavoured products.
When we were poor in the sixties we ate liver with bacon,onions, gravy, mashed potato and green beans.
I've eaten chicken hearts at a Thai roadside meal place with a really nice Arab Sheikh- member of the Saudi Family. He was amazed to see a westerner eating "offal". We were then staying at the same hotel where I met his wife and daughter, she showed her face as he permitted it .
My dad was a butcher before a linesman and technician. I cut ( killed) and dressed my first chook ( chicken) at age ten. We ate our ducks, lambs, even a 'Roo and grew our own vegetables. Nobody had any fat on them.
All the offal in a chook went into a soup, the kidneys were prized.
Meat is expensive again and people are turning to protein rich offal again. Try livers and kidneys. Nice!
Nope we re not into spicy foods at all.
Are there no Asian people where you live?
My office provides an "employee appreciation" lunch once a week and it's often Japanese, since that's popular. Miso soup is a double soybean delivery system -- tofu squares and miso (made from soybeans). Or I'll get edamame -- salted soybeans in the pod, for snacking.
If I'm going to eat fish of any kind, I insist that the fish, and the worms wiggling around in its flesh, are cooked to at least the consistency of the soles of my shoes.
