Default Exotic Cuisine

While going through the FASA booklet ACTION ABOARD: Adventures on the King Richard, I noticed that the ship's purser is always visiting the major restaurants in the ports of call, checking out for new spices, flavors, and recipes for the luxury liner. That got me to thinking (always quite dangerous) about some of the various things that I have tried over the years. Generally, my rule is I will try anything that is not out to eat me, and I will try anything that is out to eat me if I can eat if first. Note, I will try it to determine if I wish to have a second, third, or fourth bite, add it to my list of eatables, or to my list of those foods not eat without massive compulsion. So, while this is not a poll per se, it does represent an attempt to determine how wide a cuisine is represented by the various forum members, and how willing are people to try new and different things.

Over the years, I have had the following items, in no particular order.

Haggis, neaps, and tatties: I like haggis, and have been eating neaps and tatties since I was a kid. Look up definitions if needed.

Alligator: Not bad, but availability limited to Florida.

Muktuk: Once was sufficient to satisfy my curiosity.

Calamari, a.k.a. Squid: Like it and enjoy it when I can.

Bear: Again not bad, but not easily available. Ostrich is good as well, and Bison excellent.

Venison: Moose, Caribou, Deer are all liked, but again, not easily obtained.

Gyros: Invented by the Greeks, and one of their better culinary efforts.

Chicken Feet: My son is a bit mad at me for liking these. My new daughter-in-law is on his case about it.

Jellyfish: Add a touch of soy sauce and well worth the second helping.

Durian Fruit: See comment on Chicken Feet. Read definition if needed.

Abalone and Raw Oyster: Definitely not high on my list, but if desperate or have to be polite, will consume. Have yet to try octopus, suspect new daughter-in-law will remedy that soon.

Coconut Milk Fish Soup: Note, this is not made with coconut milk fish, but the base is a couple of cups of coconut milk, tastes best when coconut is one-half hour off of the tree. If made with Unicorn Tang, quite good.

English Concept of Chicago-style Pizza: A for Effort and Inventiveness, B+ for palatability. There was a good Pizza Place across the Street from Victoria Station.

Indian Tandoori-style Cooking: Great as a change of pace, best followed with some vanilla ice cream.

Pickled Brussels Sprouts: Love them, but not on my wife's list of eatables. Same with Pickled Herring.
Star Port Administrator: El Paso, El Paso, Sword Sub-sector, Piper-Norton Out Rim Sector

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
