Bird nest soup,chicken intestine soup,chocolate scorpions,locusts,snow crab and snakes heart in vodka.
But never a pint off Porty...

Chicken intestine soup?  That's just your common or garden tin of chicken soup that is.  What do you think they put in soup?  You're showing off you are! ;)
No Shell this chicken intestine soup actually had a big intestine floating in it and a gizzard,with some rice and chillies..

I had the pie of the day in the Bull, Valley once.  It turned out to be fish pie with flaky pastry on top.  I'm no Delia Smith, but I always thought fish pie should have mashed potatos on top.  There was squid and all sorts of rubbish in it, and it tasted like one of Michael Schummacker's burnt out racing tyres.

Ah, but was the floating intestine intentional? ;D

The nastiest thing i have ever eaten was Angulas a la Bilbaina, baby eels in garlic and olive oil it was horrendous, you had to have a good skinfull to even think about eatting it.
I feel sick thinking about it..  :'(

"Angulas" is the Spanish name for young European eels, or "elver" eels. Although baby eel was originally a common fisherman's dish eaten in the Basque Country, it is now considered a delicacy. Use true angulas or mock eels to make this simple and delicious dish with olive oil, garlic and a bit of hot pepper to prepare this classic Basque dish.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutesYield: 4 Servings
Ingredients:
•14 oz (400 gr) angulas (elver eels) or mock angulas
•5 cloves garlic
•virgin olive oil
•1 small hot pepper, such as cayenne pepper
Preparation:
Note: True angulas or elver eels are very expensive. Mock angulas, commonly called gulas may be substituted.

If using authentic angulas, be sure that they have been thoroughly cleaned and drained. If using the mock angulas, drain liquid they are packed in.

Peel and slice garlic. Remove seeds and slice pepper into thin rings. Place an oven-proof glazed ceramic dish (8 or 10 inch) on low heat. Pour enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the dish. Sauté the garlic slices on low heat until they begin to turn golden in color.

Add the pepper rings and angulas to the garlic. Using a wooden spoon or fork, stir to mix well and heat evenly for 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately.

........chicken intestine soup, ......
If you don't like intestines in your chicken, try the frozen ones from Netto.  They breed them without innards.

I cheated.  I did a 12 week Jungle Warfare Instructor course in Brunei when I was based in Hong Kong.  2 weeks of it was survival phase including living with Eban Indians who showed you how to make traps from strips of bark and fish traps and which plants you can eat....Christ they eat some sh*t.   There's no way you can even hide it - it looked awful and it tasted awful most of the time.
