Any blue cheese
That's all I can think of apart from obscure stuff like ostrich, kangaroo etc.
Never had a starfruit, never had a passionfruit never had a guava or a prickly pear or loads of other exotic fruits. I HAVE to fucking see to this in 2012.
accidentally ^this'd this meant to ^this Scout's post
Papaya's well nice though. Not had one in years, but still. Eat papaya.
I would've said very weak mandarin.
It was years ago and I haven't bothered since. Maybe I'm thinking of dragon fruit, that was definitely a disappointment as well.
it doesn't grow into a dragon. That was a long summer wasted.
I didn't even click "post" and it posted. And borked the thread at the same time. Hmmm. Imagine I typed something funnier, yeah?
much sweeter, softer and jucier. Starfruit are the beez kneez
Don't know why. Ticks every imaginable box.
but I've only ever had supermarkets' own-brand stuff, so it's probably never had anything close to real oxtail in it.
or bacon or sausage, oysters, clams, scallops
Have that, nature.
Scallops are a bit dull. Everything else I can heartily recommend.
They're okay. Prefer king prawns and mussels.
earns you +57 indie points, so there.
Heart. Lots of different kinds of offal.
I have tried pretty much every fruit & veg, if I am in the greengrocers I try and get one odd thing each time. Jerusalem Artichokes are excellent. I have been put of offal due to badly cooked liver as a kid, heart could be nice though as it is a muscle so may be meatier? Razor clams I bet are delicious, never seen them on a menu as yet. I want to try that trick at the beach where you pour salt in their airholes and they pop right up for you. A lot cheaper.
the old UCP shops were like the height of sophitication at one time, the one on Market St in Manchester had blue animal hide on the walls and an amazing cocktail bar. Tripe restaurants were the place to be seen.
ps. Razor clams are fucking beautiful. I've tried that trick. It was kind of gross, but fun :)
like cows smell.
I've had goat tripe as well, that was kinda nice. Didn't really taste goaty.
sometimes it just tastes too much like how they smell
Razor clams to come out of the sand. You literally just put salt in their holes? Do I need a net?
pour a bit of water, then grab em
Would like to try liver but it sounds like one of those foods that if you want it to taste nice it will probably give you food poisoning. I'm happy to go through the rest of my life never trying Kidneys though
Liver is really nasty
Chicken liver is the best.
they smell like piss. This is based on read-made pies, but each time it has made my house all pissy.
it tastes really bloody, like iron
Loads of wacky foods (ostrich, shark, etc)
because I've only been eating it for a few years and only eat it occasionally.
Never had snails and I really fancy them. I love mussels all in garlic and cream, assume they're kind of similar?
Are really nice. They are basically the same as any shellfish Whelks are just sea snails after all. The fun bit is picking them all out using a skewer.
This shit should be running around in the countryside, not dead on my plate.
There's LOADS of them out there. Go have a look. Plus they're tasty and mega cheap.
Don't live in the jungle now, do they?
cows and pigs just running around in herds freely across the countryside.
Brad Pitt really did spoil that movie.
if it weren't a bit pricey, I'd have it once a week.
most of that underwater shite really
AND I NEVER WANT TO
also any animals that arent sheep cows chickens or turkeys
and a few you'd have to go to a farmers market for. My dad caught me two pheasants a little while ago and i was well excited about eating them but he ate it all when I was out one day.
I only tried a lychee for the first time the other week and it was the best thing ever and now I get them all the time
Eating lychees = hit and miss, and a load of hassle. Just get me the juice plz.
gonna have a venture down there of a weekend.
at Parklife last year. Cultured lad
Llama was about the only native animal I didn't eat in Peru. Had both alpaca (amazing) and guinea pig (not so good).
