I think it's becoming more wide spread than we suppose.

I've had alligator and cooked it too. It was nothing special to me. Texture like fish, tastes like chicken.

It didn't even taste or feel like food. My mouth was coated with grease from just the one nugget and I was sick that night. That was just bizarre.

From a "different" bizarre perspective... probably Kokorech... lamb intestines wrapped on a skewer, seasoned and grilled. It's a street food in Turkey, where dh is from.
In the Philippines and other Asian countries they barbecue pig and chicken innards:kidney,heat,liver,intestines..i had ISAW (ee-saaaawww) from the philippines...it was tasty...but u have to make sure that its clean.

I was offered and ate some homemade jerky that came from South Africa. The person offering didn't know what animal it came from, but it was tasty. For an item that I knew about later, sweetbreads and brains...not crazy about it.

I don't know if we really can call McDonalds food bizare. BUt if you ask me what was The Most discusting Meal I ever had that would definitely be McDonalds. I ate there twice in my life, oh my gosh., the food in soviet army was by far better. ANd I tell you it was really bad in it's own right.

You're talking about "biltong" (pronounced just how you read it). Its a dried, cured meat. Usually its just beef since beef is easy to come by, but often made from game (Kudu, sprinkbok - kinds of antelope). Ostrich biltong is lovely too. Less fatty than other red meats! Less dry than jerky I think. Often its eaten still moist and pink inside.

Biltong is delicious and one of the things I miss most about South African snack food!

Another unique, but rarely eaten South African thing are Mopane Worms.

I ate a worm taco from a street vendor in Mexico City. Eh not something I will order if anything else is available. The "worms" are the same worms found in bottles of mescal.

Menudo is delicious. Don't dis menudo.

A Caribbean goat head. Shared with a gang of friends, it was very "Lord of the Flies."
