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.

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.

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. …

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)

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs Leave a Comment

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. …

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 …

TOMMO EATS SOMETHING TERRIBLE. This strange looking street food option appeared at many day & night markets all over Burma.

The main part of the meal is a mix plate of pig organs and we’ve seen it served in two different …

Eating Abalone (Raw) in Hawaii

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible Leave a Comment

Food: Abalone (Raw) Location: China Town, Honolulu, Hawaii. Its a shellfish, sounds harmless enough right? My suspicion should have been aroused when I asked the seller if they “were ok to eat raw?” and his reply being a rather hesitant “sure… if you like”. Video coming soon. VERDICT Its hard to describe just how horrible this is raw… it might be a delicacy cooked, but alas my taste buds were …
