Ostrich is good. I had it once or twice. It tasted similar to steak.

GB...Frog legs are fabulous if fresh...The ones I've experienced in restaurants, on buffets, etc. can be good, but are unexciting to me. They don't taste like chicken either....

Only one experience with snake...A huge rattle snake...fried like chicken...It was not bad, but I couldn't get past this mental thing...I felt "creepy" for severals days afterwards Next time? No thnk you!!

I agree. Had an ostrich burger at an ostrich farm in Aruba. It was tasty and lean.

Have you ever tried whale meat?????. It is really strange: it looked like a nice steak of sirloin, had the same look, texture and everything. And when you eat it...tastes like meat with a fish taste...Sorry, it is very difficult for me to describe it.,....

I'd like to try the obvious things...caviar, truffles and fois gras. Other things on my list are monkfish, bouillibaisse, and paella.

I've tried most every different thing I've ever run across...squirrel, rabbit, rattlesnake, Rocky Mountain Oysters, turtle stew, turtle soup, raccoon, conch, alligator, some kind of local crab they catch in Louisiana, frog legs, soft-shell crab, She-crab soup...I guess that's most of the interesting stuff.

Does anyone want to try anything on this page?

Can't think of a specific food I would like to try at the moment. Having lived in the USA all my life, would like to experience the best cuisines around the world. If calories, fat & sugar don't count ...

Maybe a trip to Paris, & tasting all the pastries. Munching on freshly-baked croissant (till it's cominng out of my ears), while sipping on champagne. Experience all authentic French cuisine.

Next stop Italy.

Sampling the bestest foods on a luxury cruise.

I'm sure I'll think of something.
