Only after I've eaten all I want. I love that stuff. I thought it was Korean. I can buy it at my local grocery store. Oh, great, now I'm hungry.

How they do that, and eat that "off the wall" stuff .....really is beyond me.....huh.
And I consider myself a pretty adventures taster, trying to taste everything at least once.
Pass on that one, though....LOL.
When I watch, I always wonder what their digestive system is like the next day!!

It is, it definitely is, but thought I'd do a quick google before I said that.

Kimchi wars!!

Kimchi Wars


Wow. Basically that article says that Koreans are mad that the Japanese are trying to steal their national dish.
Japan occupied Korea for a long time, so it is not surprising that some of their foods would become commingled.

I'll eat and try anything also. Enjoy try'n new things. But I will NEVER eat just peas or tuna in anything! Peas in rice, fine....but not too many. Tuna.......the smell alone makes me want to puke.

I've even eaten live minnows, sushi, and raw mt. oysters(beer played a part in that).

blood sausage, cheap hot dogs (actually I am vegetarian now- so no hot dogs) Corned beef loaded w/fat, Haggis.

I like to watch Travel channel though, and see Andrew Zimmern eat haggis, gross!!!!

Next week I think he's in Iceland. I can just imagine what he'll eat there , perhaps some jellied moose tail
lol- I like the show in Thailand when he eats stir fried bat. I give him credit. I could never!!!!!
