Bizarre Boston?

Admittedly inspired by Andrew Zimmern's "Bizarre Foods," we're looking for interesting foods to try around Boston. (I'm surprised that this topic seems not to have been covered.) We're primarily looking for well-liked restaurants, but we'd also like to learn about beloved market-fare.

I'm thinking of things like grasshopper tacos at Tu y Yo in Needham, tree fungus at Shanghai Gate in Allston, Scotch Egg at the Haven in JP, or even the Guinness Float at Dunn Gaherins in Newton -- things that are usually delicious and fun to try for the sake of trying.

Feel free to suggest unusual-to-some-but-not-to-Chowhounders ethnic foods, for the benefit of readers who may not have tried, for example, Ethiopian food or banh mi (Blue Nile in JP and and Banh Mi Ngon in West Roxbury, respectively).

Thanks for your thoughts!
