How was the Durian?

I had it in Singapore (where it's a specialty). But honestly, I can hardly remember! I remember it tasted all right... *feels silly*

clotted cream tea? Really? I didn't even know what half of this stuff was. As for eating a horse . . . boy howdy. I don't know if I could do that. You're definitely more brave than me.

Well, I've had clotted cream, but not in tea. :D

They call it "sakura" (for its cherry color), and it's raw, even! Yeah, I know I'm a tiny bit insane...

Same here. ;) But we can get clotted cream at World Market, and now I'm curious enough to try it in tea!
htbthomas
Aug. 15th, 2008 01:44 am (UTC)
I'm tempted to try it myself, too!

*tries to resist looking up everything I haven't eaten on this list and systematically whittling it down*

Good luck with that! ;)

Wow, I don't even know what half of those are, but I love food, so yep, I'm gonna snag this :-D
htbthomas
Aug. 15th, 2008 12:51 am (UTC)
LOL, me either. I'm halfway tempted to look them all up...

I googled the ones I didn't know. :D

I'm nowhere near that adventurous but I've had haggis :)
htbthomas
Aug. 15th, 2008 01:01 am (UTC)
I've wanted to have haggis! But so far, no opportunity. :)

Well, I don't have a food icon!! But, this doesn't surprise me; you are the adventurous one of the f'list, and the world traveler!!:D

My motto...if you can't pronounce it, don't eat it!!
htbthomas
Aug. 15th, 2008 01:02 am (UTC)
LOL! I do like to be thought of that way...

Aw... but you miss such GOOD food that way! My motto is, "If you can't pronounce, find someone who can, then dig in!"

Oooooh - Spaetzle are just <3 !!!

Seriously, whenever I see a German restaurant abroad, I *have* to go there and order them because people seem to assume that this is the German food ;)

And, interestingly, you never get them where I live... :P

Sauerkraut I find really yucky, though :P
htbthomas
Aug. 15th, 2008 01:16 am (UTC)
Yeah, I had my Spaetzle at a German restaurant in the US. :) I think it was paired with breaded veal or something?

I really like sauerkraut with sausage, especially on top of a brat on a bun.
schnuffichen
Aug. 15th, 2008 01:29 am (UTC)
Hehehe - yeah, I can imagine the breaded veal. Think I even ate that stuff sometime. I love my Spaetzle best with lotsa cheese, though - it's to die for :)

And, yup, many people here have Sauerkraut a lot, especially with sausages. And my Dad loves to make weird stuff like sauerkraut soup - yikes! :S
Now, this is finally a stereotype that's actually true.

I never used to think what I ate was all that adventurous; it was just the food we had to eat.

But then I thought toast was quite exotic when we first moved to Canada.
htbthomas
Aug. 15th, 2008 10:12 am (UTC)
Yes, anything can seem exotic when it's not what you usually eat! :D

I love how durian makes the list. I'm not fond of the fruit at all (hate is too strong a word :p), and they keep telling me I'm not a true Malaysian. lol. But I do love tempoyak.

htbthomas
Aug. 16th, 2008 11:39 pm (UTC)
I honestly can't remember what I thought about durian! lol, sad, I know.

What is tempoyak?
seacrystal
Aug. 16th, 2008 11:50 pm (UTC)
Tempoyak is fermented durian, usually made and eaten with sambal</i>.

You are adventerous. LOL

Shall I try to beat you?
htbthomas
Aug. 17th, 2008 06:30 pm (UTC)
With a big thick stick? Or in numbers of things tried? :D
winddancer55945
Aug. 17th, 2008 06:58 pm (UTC)
Or how about the exotic stuff? Or maybe the redneck stuff. After all, I have eaten Rocky Mountain Oysters. lol
