I had to look up at least 10 of these items on Wikipedia to see what in the hell they were.

I’ll try a lot of things, just not horse, fugu (too scared of dying from ill-prepared fugu), or anything that had poop pass through it (chitterlings).  Everything else on this list is fair game.

My  10 favorite things on the list of 100 are Pho, Oysters, Rice and Beans, Mole Poblano,  Sea Urchin, Poutine, Tom Yum soup, catfish, heirloom tomatoes, and high alcohol beers.

  1. Maybe you’ll rethink your comment “I’ll try a lot of things, just not horse, fugu (too scared of dying from ill-prepared fugu), or anything that had poop pass through it (chitterlings). Everything else on this list is fair game.”

    I DARE YOU to EAT a bite of Durian (number 65)! Haggis is is eating a Bratwurst compared to eating Durian (fruit – how the Hell is this considered a fruit?!?)

    BTW, I’ve eaten Fugu (Pufferfish) sashimi and lived to tell about it.

  2. I tried durian bubble tea and thought it tasted good…so I’d give it a shot. I know the bubble tea is artificially flavored though and it sounds like durian tastes disgusting. I saw Andrew Zimmern try one on the Travel Channel and he almost barfed in the street.

  3. “…or anything that had poop pass through it (chitterlings).”

    This may seem obvious but what about natural casing sausages? I don’t mean to insult but you do know what the casing is, right?

  4. Great point Chad…I never even thought of it that way. I just had this image of Bourdain eating the anus of that warthog and some TV show (maybe Andrew Zimmern? where they showed them cleaning out the intestines for chitterlings when I was crossing off items. I completely forgot about natural casings.
