    Bee larvae sounds kinda tasty.

    Bird`s nest soup doesn`t sound too bad.
    I`ve tried Kopi Luwak before and it`s delicious.
    Monkey Brains...no, I`d never eat that, that`s horrible.

    Also, I have a friend who drank snake blood before, apparently in certain countries if you turn down the snake blood drink they will be really offended.

    I was ok with just about all of those. Most only cause as much pain as any meal from animals. However I must draw the line with cutting a live monkeys skull open and using it as a martine shaker. If that`s their "culture" than F*CK their culture.

    lol, to all those not in the know... the spongiform encephalopathy that was mentioned for the monkey brains is what the `SE` stands for in `BSE` - also known as mad cows disease.

    This is probably where it all originated from actually. People eating monkeys/ grinding monkeys up to feed other animals... et voila!

    first lot I would eat, last one, no

    Never tried any of them.

    I wouldn`t eat any except the fried rat. I`ve never found out why people think rats are so gross (i know diseases, but that doesn`t strike me as gross).

    I would eat the bird`s nest soup, if I got paid $40/ spoonful.

    Oh, and I would go for kopi luwak if I liked cofee.

    7 and 3.

    The bee larva i thought was silk worm larva. But it looks the same.

    3 the bird nest soup is good tasting. It is sweet tasting soup. It is like a dessert.

    The monkey brains one is vile! How someone can do that I do not know! I would like to get their head in a vice and start cutting up their brains while they`re still alive! *long sentance of obcenities*

    k... im chinese, im grossed out by everything but the bird nest soup. People would be grossed out if you said bird spit was in there... but what if you just put a bowl of that in front of someone and just told them to drink it... they would probably think its good(cuz thats what my dad did to me)

    also, in china, there are really poor places where you have to poo in holes... and imagine when you have no money, no food, and really bad housing... if you were in that situation fried rat would be like... prime rib or somethin...

    so give em a break...

    I`ve tried chicken, cow and pig brains but I don`t think I`m adding monkey to my collection.

    Scorpions, spiders, larvae and the likes all taste the same: tasteless with crunchy texture.

    "I used to think birds nest soup was made out of twigs and stuff..
    Well that would be normal compared to that list!
    That spider one freaked me out, I am now sitting cross legged on my chair. Oh, how I HATE spiders."

    Why? Spiders are so cute! And I bet they taste pretty good too.

    "Monkey Brains are not only a weird food but they are also hazardous to your health. There’s a risk of getting spongiform encephalopathy, a disease of the brain, that could be fatal."

    I believe there is some irony in that.

    ok. ive had the fried bee larvae, the bird`s nest soup, and the snake blood, when i visited china during the summer. the bee tastes like chicken. beyond that tthose three "delicacies" arent worth the cost

    I`m Asian, and I know most of `em. My mom and dad were in Cambodia and my mom says she did eat fired crickets and fried spiders. She says that they`re delicious.

    But the one I really didn`t expect was the Monkey brains. I knew we ate them but we keep them ALIVE?! That`s just freakin` weird.

    Oh, and @ elHadji, I love chicken hearts. Especially with soy sauce. :D
