The hamdog, a hot dog wrapped by a beef patty and cheese that's deep-fried, covered with chili and onions and served in a bun. It's also topped with a fried egg.http://www.ajc.com/living/content/living/food/kessler/LVHamdog1.html
I had a fried twinkie for dessert, too.
That same establishment also served a burger using a krispy kreme donut for a bun. I tried that too, but not the same day.
is that good to eat? I mean; a burger with a donut for a bun. wouldn't it just be an awful mix of sweet and sticky and savory? is it not a glaze donut? (I don't know why I'm so intrigued; I'm a vegetarian)
So my roommate says to me- my friend brought me this Swedish candy- you like licorice, you will love this. Try some! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Pepper
Not so much.
The salt and licorice flavor was ok, and then there was this other flavor I cannot adequately describe, partly burning and partly... I don't know what (turns out the flavor has a name, sal ammoniac).
My roommate (and his friend) were watching me, and started to laugh. It is the most disgusting thing I have ever put in my mouth and not spit out.
I do have some pride.Edited at 2008-06-02 02:41 pm (UTC)
salmoniak :'D oh wooowww, I will never understand how people that are not Dutch (and, apparently, Swedish) can be SO repulsed by it. I love it; safely said everyone here does, little kids eat it :')
I think that the most grotesque thing I ever ate was dried squid, which tasted like...I'm not even sure. I spit it out right away. Actually, everyone spit out their bites. It was gross.
I have to say, the sardine flavored Bertie Botts Every Flavor Bean is the nastiest thing I ever ate. That thing was horrible. Even worse than the vomit flavored one.
erm....some random dried fruit i got sent in an international snack swap. it was like...cherry blossom dried gunk. it tasted bitter and salty an sweet -it's what i'd imagine a sappy branch to taste like -yick!
Oysters definitely top my list of grotesque foods. They don't look, smell, feel (i.e. texture, consistency, SLIMYNESS) or at the very least taste like anything that should be eaten. My oyster-loving husband has gotten me to try them a few different ways (raw, roasted) and times, since we live in a prime place for fresh oysters, but each time I heave a little and have to force myself not to vomit.
I've only had oysters once and that was at Nobu - I LOVED them; but I'm scared to try them now because I'm afraid that everywhere else they'll just taste.. well, how they smell.
Mom once tried to make me eat a mayonaise & pea sandwhich, when I hate mayonaise to begin with!
hahahaa that made me laugh. and i agree wholeheartedly.

Oooh, that's a tough one...
In no particular order...
~ Cold, canned escargot. *shudder* (For a Girl Scout badge - something about eating new foods.)
~ Mashed potato and undercooked adzuki bean patties. (One of Mom's less than brilliant idea.)
~ Broccoli spaghetti. It has the potential to be awesome. However, when you add TONS of undercooked onions and garlic it becomes extremely unappetizing. (Another of Mom's dishes.)
~ Weird gummy Japanese candy. I don't know what kind of flavor they were going for, but it was a massive FAIL for my American taste buds. (Can you believe my mother gave me this, too?)
~ My ex-mother-in-law's vegetable soup. It contained canned mixed vegetables and home-canned tomatoes. Maybe salt and pepper. MAYBE. No other spices, no fresh veggies. Perhaps some moderately edible bits of meat that were rendered inedible by being dumped into the pot.
I'm amazed that my palate is still good that my seasoning abilities impress Master chefs. (I'm a culinary school student, just a few classes from an associate degree.)
I have had those same Japanese candies and you are so right! WOW.
Cubed boiled pig's blood was pretty foul. My teeth stuck together while I chewed it.
A brick of feta cheese, washed down with milk mixed with dijon mustard.
deer brains cooked in scrambled eggs
cow pitutary glands
yes, yes my Grandfather was a good German butcher. :-)
on the non meat side, tomato aspic is damn near as nasty as deer brains
I've made a rule for myself after numerous bad experiences. I am not a picky eater by any stretch, but I don't eat internal organs. Ever.
Well, on *purpose* it was a horrific bit of smoked salmon which was on top of an airplane salad. (I'm allergic to all kind of fish, but heartbreakingly I love the taste of salmon and shellfish. This was just really, really, really bad smoked salmon. And I had to have a Benadryl afterward.)
On *accident* it's got to be baby vom. I was doing that hold-my-kid-up-over-my-head-and-jiggle-him-about-while-asking-WHOS DA SWEETEST BOY???. He puked in my mouth.
(I live in fear that's going to happen during one of my play therapy sessions...)
Tilapia lasagna, just had it this Sunday. (Oh the horror, the horror!)
Urgh, that doesn't even sound good.
My mom made these godawful homemade soda crackers when I was a kid...you know those foods that when you think about them your gorge rises a little? Yeah, this was one of those. She used waaaaaaaay too much baking soda and that was all you could taste. They were the worst thing ever. Another thing she made (another rare miss, she's usually a great cook) was a rice and sausage dish that was so hot it made me throw up. And I LOVE spicy food.
