Weird (strange) stuff that taste really good (i.e fried intestine, etc)

We often look down on strange foods and decided not to try them because it is unusual. But some of them turned out to be real gems. I have to admit that some things are just indigestible.

I tried fried instestine. It was chicken intestines and fried until very crispy. It is awesome. Also, tried turtle soup. Love the small eggs. But all of these were in Indonesia and so far I could not find them here in Bay Area.

Here in US, I found that a Filipino dish called Kare-kare which is oxtail cooked in a peanut butter based sauce is fabulous. I try to avoid the tripes which is usually mixed in. You can ask the server not to include them. You can find these in many Filipino restaurants.

Any others ? Pls share and also let us know the place where we can find them in Bay Area.
