Some creepy food options from around the world.
These eels writhing in a pail at a temple in Bangkok looked particularly unappetizing. One of the creepiest movie scenes I ever saw was in The Tin Drum where Northern Europeans went fishing for eels by dragging a horse’s head in the water – when they pulled out the gory head an eel crawled out of the eye socket. I haven’t been able to eat an eel since!
Snake oil! Or rather snake wine – I think you’re just supposed to drink the wine but munching on wine-marinated snakes is a possible option. (Vietnam)
The Laos diet is so protein poor that they will often eat rats for dinner…
Neighbouring Cambodia also has a protein poor diet that makes these gruesome spider snacks a tasty option at a meal stop on a Cambodian bus ride.
I might have to get used to the idea of eating creepy snacks. Rotterdam’s Het Nieuwe Instituut examines life in the future, where these wormy snacks would provide a cheap protein option. (Holland)
