While these national delicacies are completely normal to locals, people from other countries may find them a little hard to stomach. Bon Appetit and happy munching!
Sea Egg – Barbados
While most people generally want to stay away from prickly sea urchins, in Barbados the contents inside their shell are considered to be a delicacy.
Balut – Philippines
Not for the squeamish, Balut is neither an egg or a duck but rather a half-formed embryo which you chew and slurp your way through!
Cuy Asado – Ecuador
Otherwise known as grilled guinea pig, Cuy Asado is much tastier than it looks!
Mopane Worm – southern Africa
Eaten in parts of southern Africa, the Mopane Worm is a large caterpillar which is very good for you and is full of rich nutrients.
Butod – Malaysia
Now this should go down a treat! Butod is meant to be eaten alive and it’s a strange sensation munching on something that is still wriggling away.
