LOL jkath - quite a display of foods!!!! Starfish on a stick is kinda catchy!!!! (edited to say the NAME is catchy - don't know that I could actually take a bite though)

I bet someone has a post there that says - Oh yes, I'll take unknown pig parts in a bun

I'd love to have some of those noodles!!!!!! Maybe not the sheep's stomach

How do you possibly eat a starfish on a stick? That sounds about as easy as eating porcupine.

I'm a pretty adventerous eater but... in this case I think I'd join Pete at Micky D's.

Well... erm... I still insist that I am a foodie and I am not a big fan of McD's but I am afraid I would follow the footsteps of Pete if I were there...

Must admit - I would at least try a bite of each thing offered by this street vendor - I tend to try just about any food in other countries. Have even eaten raw turtle eggs in Costa Rica!!

Except for what was obviously seafood & mammal kidneys, I'd still take a pass on the starfish (how in God's name could they be anything but wood before or after cooking?), & the other items that clearly look like insects. I draw the line at insects - lol!!!
