    I have a good friend who got very drunk while stationed in South Korea. He wandered into a tent restaurant and they gave him a menu printed totally in Korean. He pointed to an item and they soon brought him a large plate of chicken feet. I asked him how they were , he said "Just awful the little tendons keep getting caught in your teeth." I decided right then" Not for me "

    Reminds me of the old mailman joke.
    When asked “Have you got a Boyle on your route?”
    He replied, “No, I just walk this way because the bag is heavy.”
    As you were.

    That's not just an Asian Thing. Chicken feet are supposedly one of the best things to add to chicken soup, because of the gelatin in them. I've had chicken soup with my European relatives and there is much sucking and slurping of chicken feet. :eek:

    I've had steak tartar, and haggis, and turtle soup (don't know if there was real turtle in it), so I'll go with blubber. Tell you one thing I haven't had a very long time, is breast milk.

    True, true, but not for lack of trying.

    They say tarantula tastes like crab!
    Well, they do (say so).
    I’ll never know.

    Truffles. Not the chocolatey things. The mushroomy things. Although I'd love to try them.

    Maybe BigdaddyLH orders a chicken salad sandwich but cannot prevent himself from delivering the Nicholson rant from Five Easy Pieces, so that he gets thrown out of the restaurant.

    I spent five days traveling by myself in rural Kyushu (western Japan). I have no idea what I ate; it was delicious.

    I ordered dog one time... in Darjeeling, India... unknowingly. It wasn’t labeled as such in the menu.

    A friend of mine from Bhutan was with us and questioned my order after the waiter left. I was like “heck yeah... I haven’t had meat in two weeks.”

    He said, “That dish is dog.”

    As I was trying to wave down the waiter, he was laughing at me for being a dumb American. :)

    Also... I have eaten... goat testicles... in Burundi, Africa.

    I didn’t find out what they were until the following day. I wouldn’t knowingly eat them again, but they were not bad

    Chicken feet have now show up as a regular in the meat section of the Walmart nearest to our home. I asked a stock guy about it one time. He said that many in the large Hispanic population near the Walmart had requested that they stock chicken feet... so they do. When I was in Guatemala last year, the lady who cooked for us at the church that hosted our medical group... she had won a national chefs contest a few months before. Her food was outstanding. I asked her about chicken feet... and we had them at the following meal as an appetizer. They were not bad, but I wouldn’t ever pay for them. I put it in the same category as a hot dog.

    I have been around the world a number of times, and have eaten many strange and exotic meals, entrees, and side-dishes.

    But after scanning thru the previous 8 pages of responses, I have kept a tally, and I must confess that I have never eaten:

    * Dog (that I know of)

    * Testicles of any variety

    * Kiviak

    * Durian

    * Spiders or insects of any sort

    That's about it.

    :(

    I had chicken feet in Singapore once or twice. Lotsa bones, don't remember "tendons" being a problem. Mild novelty, wasn't disgusting, wasn't great. I'm sure the chicken wasn't too happy about it.
