Threatening food

When is offal(AKA guts/lungs/head), wacky ingredients and, a challenging menu too much?

I recently did a special offal dinner at Incanto and waded through it, but came home hungry and a little sick. I wanted to be enthusiastic but just didn't care for most of the flavors.

I wonder about this because of the level of discussion on this board. Some people, I think, are basing reviews on pure food taste and others are basing the review on the experience and/or a specific food "expectation."

I tend to look at overall experience, quality and what I "believe" is authentic here in the bay area. Am I off? What do you look for?
