Part the fun in visiting different countries is trying new foods we haven’t heard of or can’t find at home. Sometimes though, something gets lost in translation from the kitchen to the menu. Here are a few items we saw on our trip to China, a few we tried, a few we passed on. There were moments when we were eating something delicious but had absolutely no idea what it was.

There was one time when the menu was perfectly clear though. In North Korea we were offered the opportunity to try dog. We’re pretty adventurous eaters but we passed on that. The few people who did try it said it tasted like beef. We’ll take their word on it.

I don't even know where to begin with this one.

Not sure what face food is.

Gruel? You want more gruel?

I love donuts but germ?

Will that be one lump or two?

For obvious reasons I had a problem with the dessert listed at the bottom.


What’s the strangest food you’ve ever tried?
