People Really Eat That Shit?! (Part 4)

Was just reading in Claypot's blog comments about how they eat caterpillars over in Zambia and other areas of southern Africa [see the bug section below]. With that said, on with gwoss foods...

Vegetable: Mountain potato: Japan: It's a root that's eaten raw and grated, often with raw tuna and a raw quail egg. When the potato is grated, it secretes a clear-ish slime that has the same consistency as mucus. [So, okay, it's like eating snot then. This might appeal to young children.]

Mountain potato with tuna

Fish: Rolmops: Netherlands, Denmark: Raw herring wrapped around a pickle and/or a cocktail onion. [Does like everybody have a freakin raw fish dish except, thankfully, us?]

Birds: Owl soup: China: Can be mistaken for chicken soup until you see the head in the pot!

Mammal: Squirrel brain: US South: You cook the head with the rest of the body, then using your fingers and a fork, you dig the brains out. It is said to taste similar to mushrooms.

Reptiles: Snake blood: Thailand: Served freshly harvested from King cobras. You can get it as a straight cocktail or a mixed drink for what would be as much as $200 in the US! It is supposed to have medicinal and sexual powers.

Bugs: Tarantula: Cambodia: These are commonly eaten by the locals in the town of Skuon. Also...
Mopane caterpillars: southern Africa

Are these the same ones you're talking about Claypot?

Drinks: Ammonia coke: US South: Coca-Cola with a little ammonia in it. It was once popular in West Virginia for curing various ailments and can still be found older pharmacies with soda fountains. [WTF?!]
