Megsy Fun

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 …

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

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”.

Tommo Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

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 Food, Tommo-Eats-Something-Terrible, Video Blogs

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 …
