For a spice that was once more valuable than gold, they have an air of exclusivity to them. These yellow coloured buns are a tasty treat when travelling around this county and can perk you up after a long walk on the beach with the dog or a trip with the family around the numerous tourism attractions.
Bear Claw - Bear claw doesnt really look bizarre as they are rather tender and come with an odd, chewy consistency when stewed properly. In fact, you should feel great about its ability to boost your sexual performance, or so they claim. The problem actually is not in the taste or the bizarre nature of the dish, but rather in its prohibitive cost. Get ready to freak out not because of the idea of eating a bear claw, but rather because of the large hole it will leave in your pocket.
Balut - Featured in many Fear Factor episodes and a delicacy in the Philippines revered by males for its ability to increase sexual performance, balut is nothing more than duck egg but with an already-grown embryo. Most foreigners will close their eyes when they eat the balut to avoid establishing eye contact with the duck embryo complete with feathers, beak, and feet.
Fried Tarantula - The mere thought of a tarantula crawling on your skin is often enough to scare the wits out of many folks. Now try to eat Cambodias favorite snack, the pan-fried Zebra Tarantula and youll see just how tough you really are. It may be gooey and yucky inside but the outer skin is deliciously crispy. Try the abdomen if you can as only the bravest dare do so.
These delicacies are not for the weak. But, theyre really worth the try if you want to make your travels more exciting and memorable.
