Nyonyachef Xplore Exotic Food

I always wonder...If one is a glutton or a food connoisseur how do you know whether the food is good or not if you have not try anything and everything that is foreign or exotic to you ?!!

In Thailand...the locals eating insects, The fetus, In, snake or any/every animals with the "back facing the sky"...and much more.

We tend to look at things and commented good, delicious, Mmmm or....Yucks ! How do you know if you don't try or xplore....!

Glutton ?....Let's go to the extreme to find out how far your stomach can take it !

Dare...or...Not ! Let's xplore ! Get ready the first aid kit !

First stop...what the +x@-!#...ugly, slimy, disgusting, indecent thing

Sea Worm ?'s only RMB 58

Second stop...something crawling out....suddenly caught my attention !

Water Bug ? Only RMB 33 for 50g....not cheap, must be a delicacy in China !!!!

Lunch is served,....Stir Fry Water Bug with Spicy Sauce ! Hehe....I actually frightened everyone in the dining room...they ran out...Glutton ?!!!

Actually it taste crunchy and tasteless ! It's the spicy sauce that gave it a boost.

You should try anything and everything the locals eat then you can be the judge of it !

(whispers) I think I can be revived with a dose of Kerabu bihun and lobak,... washed down with cold beer. :) :)

NyonyaChef said...


Adventurous !? Action only ! We do have fear when we picked up the bug !


Close your eyes and imagine you are eating a prawn including the shell.


Ya, Ya, your imagination is getting, I will give you lobak & kerabu bihun in exchange for seeing you demonstrate how you slowly put the BUG thru your beautiful lips, licking it and gently chewing it...when you want to do it ? hehe

Hi NyonyaChef,

Very amusing posting, and made me think how far I would "experiment" - I think i would have to draw a line on insects, i cannot believe they can taste good, possibly crunchy but not good!

Hehe ! Fear factor ! I drew a line too, but when all the people in the room ate and they locked the door...dead end.
