Do you have a Bucket list? Do you have one for places to eat? Things, ways to eat? Same list, two lists?

OK, title states it all.
Some things on my list (I'm an experience, taste person) are not things I wanna do, but think I should do to know if what others say is worth it. Done some, will do others. I plan to do my, gulp, first ever, soft shell crab experience this year. I think I will live. I will certainly post about it.

My dream is this: once I read that the best Japanese eating experience was a train trip through Japan, stopping at inns, for that local, in home meal at each stop.

A few years ago in the same meal I sucked a shrimp head and ate the fried shell, both things I thought I could never do, without a gun to my family's head. I survived. It was good. I tried it again years later at another (CH recommended local place), the experience was awful, it was the restaurant's fault.

Once I tried uni, in my early sushi eating days. Deal was my partner and I would order the chef's deluxe, as it always promised a well er deluxe item. We'd share the bite. i was always the bravest (sometimes spelled 'stupid") who tasted first, That bite had only one thing going for it, the only way I could survive it was to have my partner eat it as well. He did what I wanted to do and spit it out. We agreed , we were glad we did not step it in. MANY years later I tried uni again, Oh Wow, it was so good! Turns out the first place had bad uni!

So I ask you CH what have you done on your bucket list and what do you still have there? Would you re-try a FAIL on a bucket list item?
