Help me find weird food [Raleigh, NC]

M_Tag | Nov 5, 201002:14 PM     19

It seems I can't get enough strange food. Well, not strange, but not typically enjoyed by most Americans. I'm a big fan of sardines and most any tinned fish, limburger cheese and onion sandwiches, blood sausage, beef tongue you name it. By the way, if you haven't had beef tongue, you have no idea what you're missing. If it's pungent or strongly flavored, I'll probably enjoy it.

My problem is that no one else (that I know) seems to have similar tastes. Certainly not my wife, though she has no qualms about what I choose to eat. Anyways, it's difficult to receive recommendations for places for find new foods. On my short list are tripe, haggis, kidneys, lungs, cock's combs, and durian. So, I've come to this forum for recommendations from folks who aren't afraid of a silkworm pupae or chicken foot. Where can I find some good weird food around the triangle?
