    I’m not picky at all. But there is 2 things I can’t stand. Eggplant and squash.

    Oysters raw on the half shell might be my favorite food. The bigger the better.

    South Park seafood in downtown does them great

    I’ve eaten capybara meat, and that’s just a really large guinea pig. I’ve eaten a lot of ricefield rats when I was a kid. Used to trap them with my uncle in rice paddy fields (we’d find snakes nearby and catch those suckers too).

    I’ve probably eaten a few animals that are on the endangered species list (feels terrible about it).

    Rats and Crab are both scavengers, on the food chain like any other animal.
    What did rat taste like?

    I was down in Ecuador with a group studying socioeconomic issues abroad. We were at a restaurant. Guinea pig was their speciality there. (I later saw a Guinea pig farm). Everyone else was to afraid to try it. I said what the hell and ordered it.

    Not a lot of meat on it. Very fatty. Tasted like chicken and bacon. Not too bad.

    The large oysters aren't really meant to be eaten raw. The midsize and especially the petite are good to eat raw. I drive to Pacific Oyster in Tillamook for my oysters.

    Had gator bites while in the army in Alabama. Not bad!

    I used to feel the same way. I'm now 45 y/o and I just started eating tomatoes on my burgers, etc. Someone convinced me to eat a BLT and it changed my life. If you ever want to try to add tomatoes to your burgers, etc, use roma tomatoes. I found they were the easiest to enjoy.

    I refuse to eat eggs. I hate eggs. I get a lot shit for it too. They are flat out the most nasty thing out there.

    Ready for it... tastes like chicken. :bgrin:

    Not a lot of meat but you can sometimes chew through the bones. The ricefield rats are chewier than your typical farm raised chicken over here. Doesn’t have the nice crunchy skin of a fried chicken.

    Dude, we have a persimmon tree in our yard. We planted it when we moved in and it's been bearing fruits like crazy since. They're delicious! Wife's favorite fruit.

    Fun fact for you if you know a Vietnamese person that eats oysters. In Vietnamese, oysters are called lồn tiên. Literal translation for that is angel's pussy.

    The actual word is con hàu, but most dudes will say the other word. :bgrin:
