Food Wonders & Blunders

There is no question that eating the local cuisine enhances a travelers experience. You have to be willing to trust that the locals aren't all crazy. That they eat all those 'weird' things for good reason. So suspend your squeamishness and dive right in with gusto because a real man will eat anything! More often than not you will come upon delicious meals that usually cost less than food made specifically for the taste of 'rich' westerners.

No less memorable but far less enjoyable are those foods that look innoccous but turn out to be total food blunders. Unless the description appeals to you, stay away from the following foods that have begged the question, "are these people crazy?!"
