He had a mole dish that had to be ordered in advance. Other foods in the episode were State Fair foods, astronaut foods, wild game, bbq, tripas gorditas and barbacoa (he ate an eyeball)

It was a pretty tame show compared to most of them

Huh. I guess if you never eat Mexican food mole is "different".

Barbacoa, tripas and eyeballs are definitely bizarre. Yick!

LOL! Perhaps another viewer could better describe the dish.

I like barbacoa but I can do without seeing it made

I have to admit, I thought tripas and barbacoa were very strange/bizarre when I first moved here. Now, its an occasional treat. =)

Ugh. Not me. I have to leave the room. Yuck. I don't like innards like that - no organ meats, no tongue. Ugh. I grew up German. I had my fill of that nonsense as a kid. I'm not going to eat it as an adult!

Is the roach that crawled out from under my table and waved at me still there ??? Last time I was there it was so-o-o-o dirty that afterwards I never went back. If they'd clean the place up a bit I might go back....but the food is good though.....

I watched the show last night too. The mole dish Mr. Bizarre Foods ate wasn't your standard Mexican mole commonly found thru-out this area. I can't remember exactly what the ingredients were— South American mole, perhaps? I think the 'bizarre' aspect were the combination of things in the dish.

Bizarre or not, I need to pay a visit to Liberty Bar next time I'm in the neighborhood.

Ha! I didn't see any roaches and the only grime I noticed was on the back of the neck of the kid at the table in front of us.

Oh, you have to go if you've never been! It's so good! We usually go for lunch/brunch on Saturdays.

It was some kind of cheese dish that takes 3 days to make.
