Default Weird foods you've eaten?

A spin-off of the picky eaters thread. What are some unusual/weird/uncommon foods you've tried?

I've never had anything super weird, like rocky mountain oysters or crazy bugs or something, but I've a few things that aren't common around here:

frog's legs
alligator meatballs
ostrich
quail/quail eggs
chocolate covered crickets
elk
bison
rabbit
boar (i think these are common elsewhere in the country, but not common here)

what are some unusual things you've eaten?

Crickets? EWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

I've had snail (not a fan... heck I don't remember how in the world I got convinced to try it. I think I didn't know what it was), rabbit, boar (not a fan... too tough), squail. Oysters are still one of the grossest things for me though.

I can't say I've ever eaten anything overly weird. I am not a picky eater but I am NOT an adventurous eater either lol

I've had all the kinds of birds you can imagine... capon is one of them, lol. Rooster, squails, different kinds of turkeys... much more common in France.

Eaten a lot of random game meats.

The weirdest dishes were probably fish head soup (I ate the eyes on a dare for $1 each and made some gas money! woo!)

Chicken legs. Fried duck feet. This weird Vietnamese doughy pastry that was green and spongy, it was some kind of thing that gets locked away and fermented for a long time. It was good though.

Taramosalata. It's Greek carp roe stuff and it's a really good spread/dip.

And raw limpets. nom. lol
