I haven't had it, but Jollibee has come to my area, and there isn't a single thing on the menu that looks appealing to me. I know it's fast food and maybe not representative, but still...

Anything with fiddlehead fern (or fernbrake or braken or whatever they call it in Korean foods).

Tried it once. Almost immediately after ingesting it I projectile vomited like Linda Blair in the Exorcist. Right there at the table.

No primates, dogs, cats or other off mammal foods. No crunchy fried bats, rats, gophers..

Same. I should have just copied and pasted your post because this is how I feel as well.

For those who don’t know, balut is a Fillipino “delicacy” (?) that is an egg with a partially developed chicken inside. Yuck!!! Not a fan of most Filipino foods. Seems like EVERY work potluck in history someone brings pancit.

My favorites in order are:

Thai
Indian
Japanese

I don't think even Filipinos eat Filipino food. I may eat it, but I'm going to peek into it and go on a fact finding mission to try and figure out what's actually in it first.

I tend to like all Asian food except for the fringe items like monkey brains. Andrew Zimmerman had several TV shows in Asia which highlighted alot of stuff I would not eat

My daughter went to school in Chengdu, in the Sichuan province. That's when she first became a vegetarian. She likes the spicy flavors, but not the pig brains, rabbits, frogs, etc., popular in Sichuan cuisine.

Later she returned to China and lived in Beijing for a year. She sent pictures of the lovely street food when she first got there--fried scorpion, snake, spider, and baby shark on a stick.

A coworker of mine who is a Jain went on a tour to China with a group. They brought their own chef to make sure they had access to what they could eat with their religious dietary restrictions.

He said he had a conversation with a Chinese person about their food, particularly dogs. He told them "we like our dogs as pets". The Chinese man laughed and said, "We like them on the table. If it walks with its back to the sun, we will eat it."

Yeah, the older Chinese came from a generation who have experienced real famine.

Read some of the stories and you hear about whole communities that ran out of food and had to eat bark and mud.

Imagine being brought up in that kind of environment. The mindset would definitely be - if it's edible, we do not waste it.

We all live with an embarrassment of riches when it comes to food, so we have no inkling in what it means to starve for days or weeks.

I won't eat dogs / cats, etc but wouldn't look down on people who were brought up in that generation of poverty whose mindset is purely pragmatic.
