The Weird Things People Eat Around the World

Half the fun of traveling is getting out and enjoying all sorts of foods you're not used to eating. A simple trip to the corner market or grocery store in a foreign land can keep you amused for hours.

Can you guess what these little buggers are?

Nothing like a Beijing street market to test your gag reflexes. Yep, still works

This one is my favorite. "Half fish filet and tartar sauce, half egg over hard and yakisoba noodles," found in Japan. Awesome!

These dried lizards found in Hong Kong are used for soup.

Some people like their sushu a little too fresh.

This stuff is called Natto, and it's made from fermented soybeans. It looks like old baked beans and snot.

It's orgasmic.

These are candied cordyceps from China. I had to use trusty Wikipedia to figure out what a cordyceps is, and it turns out it's a type of fungi. That's not so bad!

Black beans are good. Cheese is good. But black bean cheese? I dunno -- it sort of looks like a bowl of ash. I guess I'd try it; it is the natural black foodstuffs, after all.

Spotted at the Raleigh, N.C. BugFest.

and, finally..

Chocolate french fries in Seattle.
