What Food Have You Wanted to Try?

For me:

Bubble and Squeak
Poutine
Shabu-Shabu

Probably more, but it's all I can think of right now.

1. Fried grasshoppers

It sounds weird but just to say I tried.

And you can deep-fry anything & it will taste good, right?

3. I've had them. They're pretty good!

Spicy and lemony is how they're prepared in Guanajuato. You can get them in just about any street corner near the market.

10. Umm... I Hope You Enjoy Them

You can have my share. Same with chocolate covered ants. I won't even eat anything that has carmine as a coloring agent (made from a kind of beetle).

9. Oh, Yeah!

That's a good one. I've had those chocolate "truffles," but those aren't real truffles.

I'll add that to my list of things to eat before I die.

4. I have always wanted to try insects like Anthony Bourdain and Andew Zimmern

eat on their shows. I also want to try Kobe beef. I know I will never get to try the beef because it is so expensive.

5. Poutine sounds yummy

Is this common in all of Canada or just a specific region?

6. Poutine is good but it's very rich and filling and you can't eat much of it

at once. Or you'll go into cardiac arrest if you do. Poutine has recently become a thing here in Minnesota - you can get it, and a lot of variants of it, in many restaurants. I am hoping that if poutine becomes widely popular here, Canada will decide to annex us.

17. You can make it at home with fewer calories

Make home fries in canola oil - drain them on paper towels

Use fat-free canned beef gravy (real poutine gravy is made by St Hubert - I don't know its calorie count or fat content)

Use cheese curds sparingly.

I top 'em with chopped scallion greens

Yum!

8. I Think There Are Regional Variations

All of which claim to be real poutine, of course. It seems to have originated in Quebec. It sounds like it would throw chili cheese fries on its butt.

7. Bubble & Squeak is easy to make.

But I do want & need a few shakes of Texas Pete's vinegar hot sauce on it.

11. That Sounds Delicious!

Dunno if it's still authentically British, though.

But, who cares?

12. The KFC Double Down

I know it is a food abomination and seldom available.

However, I have to watch my health and am very selective about what I ingest. So, no KFC for me. This is one thing on my bucket list I will never check off.

On edit - shabu shabu is delicious! My wife makes that about once a year.

13. not a food exactly

but I would like to try some kind of really expensive champagne, just to see if the hype has any meaning.
poutine sounds yum, I would like to try that.

15. Liquid grapes

Just sayin'

I had a bottle of Dom given to me a while back. My experience has been there's a big difference between a $15 bottle and a $45 bottle, but not so much between a $45 bottle and a $200 bottle. Then again I'm not a big fan of that form of ethanol.

14. None of those looked appealing to me.

Wish I was more adventurous. Wonder why my sister is such a foodie and I'm too timid to try new things. I have discovered, however, that foodies tend to be interesting people and I enjoy hanging out with them...until dinnertime.

16. Chicago deep dish style pizza and Montreal styled bagels.

Both have been squeezed out of my market by the obnoxious New York food monopoly, and I don't even live in New York.
