Top 10 bizarre foods That People Eat:
The following is the list of ten unusual foods in the world:
1.The Fugu Fish:
This food needs no introduction. Fugu is one fish that is banned in many countries. The only reason being the presence of dangerous poison that actually can paralyze the human beings to an unrecoverable state and also ensure death in many cases. It is still consumed in Japan. The bizarre part is that there are specially trained chefs over a period to take care of this fish only and without an active license cannot work on this fish.
This can be any day termed as a life threatening dish without any problem. This is one particular dish that has an octopus that is live. Yes, in this a live octopus is served to the people that by the way is whole. This can often cause deaths as the octopus can be devastating when they are trying to consume. They can choke you to death.
This is again a live octopus dish. The best part about it is, though, that the octopus is cut into pieces. No matter how much the octopus is cut it still seems to remain alive and very much moving for a long period. This though is a relief as at least there are no chances of getting choked to death on these.
4.The Birds Nest Soup:
One of the best delicacies and costliest dishes that people can usually come around with is this particular dish of course. This particular dish is made out of the nest of a bird, the swift to be specific. Most often the nests are not cooked and are just like that put in the soup. With the times changing though these nests nowadays are also deep fried.

Coffee is one of the favorites of a human being. This is the reason why these particular coffee beans of Kopi Luwak are so very costly.

One of the most famous dishes from the region of the Philippines, this particular dish is again a concept of an egg. This time, though people do not get to consume an egg as in the egg, they can get to consume the carcass of a duck embryo. This is an egg that contains the duck embryo when it is consumed.
The mopane is one of the insect dishes that people would hardly like. These are caterpillars that the people are eating.
