It's advised to smell, lick, then eat, in that order. And it's always appropriate to stop at the first sign of dislike. Jerry would.

Roedapple: Liked your picture of a octopus, but missed the squid (calamari).. Kinda like the Florida Gators using a crocodile as their logo

The best part of being overseas is immersing yourself in a foreign culture and trying things so unusual to yourself, but so normal to someone else... including the food.

Until you discover your 'food' running for its life across your plate or the table.

I like frogs and snails and mushrooms and stuff. Ethnic foods are really the same around the world, just a variation of spices and herbs..a burrito is an eggroll is a canalonni etc....put basil and garlic in it and it become Italian...add some cumin and chile powder and you made mexican...

I once ordered calamari while seated with a large group that included a friend from the Netherlands. He said he was surprised anyone from Kansas would know what calamari is. I told him not all of us were raised exclusively on beef and taters. (Goes good with Pabst Blue Ribbon beer)

I love food. While I have my norms (Mexican, Steak, BBQ, or Italian), I will try new food. For examply, I am close to adding Greek food to my list of norms or favs.

Also, I also like Hawaiian food but frankly that may have been more just being in Hawaii. We used to go every year until we had kids and probably will go again when they can handle the flight. My kids are nuts (good thing) and no way they can be locked up that long in a closed space.

Kind of. But then again, I grew up poor white trash in Kansas. Everything is exotic to me that is normal to others...

I'm pretty much an omnivore. I don't eat innards either. Everything else is fair game.

No, I stick with what I like. Bacon wrapped pizza rolls, deep fried

Tried the local cuisine in Qatar...was quite bad. Korean food, similar experience with the exception of Bulgogi.

My borrowed motto is "Keep It Simple, Stupid."

I love trying out the food from the many nations I've traveled too. The best part of being overseas is immersing yourself in a foreign culture and trying things so unusual to yourself, but so normal to someone else... including the food.

Today's lunch is peanut butter & tomato sammich. Don't know if that qualifies as adventurous, but it sure is tasty.
