For the first time in ten years, Macaulay Culkin sat down with Rhik Samadder from The Guardian and dished on everything from Donald Trump to his plans for the future.
Place: Beijing China, in the main plaza Verdict: I would try it again if I were with someone who was afraid to do it alone. I suffered no real side effects but there have been cases of others choking from not properly preparing their bite. Taste: Well, our guide sold them to us as “lemon- flavored ants”, and while I wouldn’t say they tasted exactly like lemons, there was definitely a sour, citrusy burst when you mashed them on your tongue. ) Place: We found these ants on a day-hike through the middle of the jungle inthe Amazon basin.
Side Effects: I swallowed it and I’m still alive Taste: The taste of san nakchi (live octopus) is comparable to extremely fresh and rare pork. Side Effects: If anything, conquering san nakchi made me feel invigorated. I guess they tasted like lemon in the same way that lemongrass tastes like lemon; close enough that you wouldn’t compare it to anything else. We booked our tour from an operator in Baños, Ecuador. Well, I can’t say that I’d ever plop myself down in front of a nest and go all anteater on them, but you know what?
The texture is surprisingly chewy but you can definitely feel the tentacles sticking to your throat. I might be convinced to eat a plate of grilled chicken with these little guys crawling all over it. Side Effects: No side effects from eating the ants only had 4 or 5 in my mouth, really.
Be sure to slather your writhing piece in sesame oil so that it glides don’t your throat and doesn’t strangle you on its way down. Place: I tried san nakchi in the coastal town of Pohang, South Korea. Besides the initial burst of lemon, I wouldn’t have even known they were there.
It’s relatively easy to find a seafood restaurant that serves live octopus in South Korea. However, my wife, Oksana, was a little slower in crushing her ants and had one bite her tongue! Although it was fried on the spot, the fish was still tasted very fresh Place: Fukoka, Japan Verdict: I would definitely try fugu again.
Maybe next time I will be more bold and try it as sushimi.
Side Effects: None Taste: It was uncooked meat, but it didn’t really taste any different from other meat. Place: Beppu, Japan, don’t know the name of the restaurant, recommended by the hostel I stayed at Verdict: I would probably not try it again.
