Wierd or unusual food, dessert and drinks

Food Tourist | Aug 28, 2006 08:10 PM

I'm always looking for original items on a menu and get disappointed when I see the same old ingredients listed (not that I don't have an appreciation for the classics). Either in the GTA (I live in Etobicoke) or elsewhere in Ontario (I typically go to the Niagara Region when going out-of-town), where do you go for tasty food that contains wierd or unusual ingredients? Some places might only have one unusual item on an otherwise "classic" menu - so I want to know about it! I don't mind driving far away to try something original and delicious...or even an exotic cuisine from a faraway land.

For example, corn ice cream, floral martinis, sweetbreads done perfectly, rare-breed pork, duck tongues, desserts containing vegetables or herbs, ostrich, bone marrow, unexpected pizza toppings, Algerian or Tanzanian/Kenyan food, etc.
