Craziest, but good thing you've ever eaten.

I'm sure we have a pretty sophisticated and daring palette in chowhound. What have you eaten that would people go either "what?!" or "ew~" or some other strong reaction...but actually tasted pretty good? I grew up eating bird's nest soup, sea cucumber sashimi (slimy), octopus sashimi (the tentacles stick to your mouth), etc.

I think the craziest thing I tried was fried grasshopper---without batter, of course---in a rural town in Korea that was actually pretty good (if you ignored the fact that it still looked like insect).

Pretend that you're Anthony Bourdain in the show No Reservation if that helps you. :)
