Eating Lamb Brains Curry in Delhi, India (w/Video)

Lamb Brains Curry, Delhi, India

It’s time for some zombie food! At some point in your life, as a carnivore, you’ve probably eaten brains. You might not have known about it. You might not want to think about it. But reconstituted meat, burgers, hot dogs… who knows what goes into them! If you are Scottish, you’ve almost certainly chowed down on some mind-meat. There is a difference from eating brains ground with other meat and …

Eating Spiders (Tarantula) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia (Video)

Eating Tarantula in Phnom penh Cambodia

Can you eat tarantula? Why, yes you can. Today I’ll be eating spiders in Cambodia – In the capital, Phnom Penh to be precise. Surprisingly, this once hugely common dish has all but disappeared from major cities. We had to do some serious internet research to discover where to chew some tarantulas, without having to go rural. We finally tracked down “Romdeng” restaurant. They keep live tarantulas on the premises …

Eating Balut (Boiled Duck Foetus), Philippines (VIDEO)

Eating Balut, Philippines

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. Boiled egg with a difference? This is it. At 18 days into incubation, fertilised duck eggs are robbed from their mothers and boiled up to serve hungry Filipinos. This is one of the holy grails of strange food. The thing that amazed me most was that these are not a rare, impossible to find delicacy. In the Philippines you can find balut on every street corner. …

Eating Yak Yogurt in Western China

MEGSY EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE: Yak Yoghurt. Get ready for super sour dairy suffering… If a yogurt-stomach-acid combo is your thing, then you’ll love this. For those regular followers you’ll know we have a regular section called Tommo Eats Something Terrible. I thought that on this occasion I’d give him a break and run the gauntlet myself… We decided to head to Xiahe, Gansu Province, China, for two reasons: 1. Wiki travel …

Discover The Truth About Mongolian Food (What to Eat)

It’s quite common knowledge that Mongolian food is not winning any culinary awards on the worlds stage, in fact we personally like to refer to it as the cafeteria food of the world! Heading into Mongolia we had no idea what food to expect, in fact a Mongolian friend of ours simply stated “have low expectations then you won’t be disappointed”! This article is aimed at giving those planning on …

The One Thing You MUST Do In Mongolia: Nomadic Homestay

Heading out into the Mongolian wilderness you never know what you’re going to get. We knew that things could be rough but this time around we found ourselves face to face with an eagle who looked like he could give human flesh a go and on the receiving end of a family feast difficult to stomach (because it mostly was stomach, lambs stomach!)…..here’s what happened. How it Began One of …

Eating Starfish – on a stick! Wangfujang market, Beijing. (Video)

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. For weird food eaters, Wangfujang Night Market in Beijing is well known as a culmination of many of China’s stranger “delicacies”. This maybe true, and if you have a large and frivolous wallet then perhaps you can afford to sample them all. Unfortunately we don’t, so I chose one of the cheaper options, Starfish (20 yuan – $3.75), and will have to come back to other …

Sex Organ Soup (Hong Kong) – Eating Testicles, Penis, Scrotum & Labia! (VIDEO)

sex-organ-soup hong kong

A mouth full of cock is not normally my first thought before heading out for breakfast but apparently in Hong Kong a lot of people savour the opportunity to enjoy chewing on bovine chode prior to 11am. Originally this started out as a simple opportunity to swallow some testicles but after we arrived at the restaurant it turned out that for about $11 I could actually enjoy multiple sex organs. …

Eating Whole Deep Fried Pigeon inc. Head & Organs

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. People eat pigeon in western society, nothing terrible about that, but generally the meat would be presented in a pleasing and non-controversial way… Not so in Hong Kong. The deep fried head is placed delightfully on top of the rest of the meat and if you are lucky – I was – you’ll get an internal organ surprise left inside the rib cage too! Its somewhat …

Eating Pig Organs Hotpot (Pyin oo Lwin, Myanmar) (Video)

Pig Organs hotpot

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. This strange looking street food option appeared at many day & night markets all over Burma. Especially easy to find in Mandalay and Yangon, we ran into this particular vendor, amongst many others, in Pyin oo Lwin at the central night market (4pm – 8pm). The main part of the meal is a mix plate of pig organs and we’ve seen it served in two different …
