Weird Eats Thread

drewbacca | Aug 8, 2008 09:40 AM

After getting tired of eating pasta and pizza on our two-week trip through Italy, a friend and I decided to start trying new things. Things most of our friends wouldn't eat on a dare: pigeon, pajata (veal intestine), hot cow's stomach sandwiches, lard sandwiches, some stew made from lamb heart, lung, liver, and spleen, etc. We wound up spending more time hunting down weird foods to eat than taking in all that great art and culture but we had a lot of fun doing it.

I'm moving back to New York next week, and my friend and I want to continue hunting down weird dishes to eat. I've already tried calves brain tacos, jellyfish in Chinatown, and we're planning on heading to the Red Hook fields to try that famous roast guinea pig.

Anyone have some suggestions for weird eats in New York?

(Apologies if there is a similar thread for this already)
