Funky Food Friday:

Every week we try to write something on the weird side of food and I came cross a virtual treasure trove of foodie weirdness here today.  In fact, I think it may be where Andrew Zimmern goes for show research.   Check out if you have some time to kill.   It’s a site that is gaining rapidly in popularity and traffic that features user generated content on all aspects of foodie weirdness.   Want a glossary of edible bugs from around the world?  It’s in there.

One thing I also really liked is that their search box allows you to search by the food item or  country – so if you are say – headed to Thailand and want to engage in some “weirdfoodiness”  you can find out what type of fun bugs, reptiles and mammals you may be able to find at the local market or streetfood card.

It’s a fun and goofy site that would no doubt make the squeamish squirm – but I live for that kind of thing.

So, if you want to learn a bit about weird foods and their place in cultures all around the world, is a fun place to start your research or kill some spare time that clearly I have too much of.

Happy Funky Food Friday!


  1. This is great! An easy way to find weird foods on earth – I don't think fabulous food hampers will be included though

  2. Thanks for taking the time to comment – glad you enjoyed the post.

  3. As popular as the shows are featuring Bourdain and Zimmern eating all kinds of crazy stuff, I have to think there is room for Bizarre Foods baskets/hampers now.

    Thanks for commenting!


  4. Oh my, bizarre basket/food hampers soon? Wow, that's a new genre of exotic find huh! I can't wait to see it materialize soon.
