Disgusting local foods

Inspired by the various food-related arguments we've been having lately, I decided to go the opposite direction and race you to the bottom.

1429282-vt_surstromming.jpg

This is surströmming. Translated it would be sour herring. It is fermented herring that is kept just on the edge of being rotten for at least six months, and usually about a year. The Japanese have studied it and come to the conclusion that opening a can of this shit is among the most pungent food odors in the world. A German food critic supposedly said that the trick to eating it is to vomit after the last bite, rather than the first. The fermentation process is sometimes so extreme the cans just spontaneously explode, which has caused certain airlines to ban travelers from having cans of surströmming in their luggage. A German landlord kicked a tenant out for opening a can indoors, and won in court when he opened a can in the courtroom to prove how horrible the smell was and that he was not just culturally insensitive. For some reason, there are people who go nuts for this shit, despite the fact it smells like someone died of something related to explosive diarrhea and then stewed in it for a year or so.

This is a challenge, SRK. Show me your local cuisine can produce anything worse.

    Dude, we have scientific data that proves it smells worse than actual shit! I have no idea what compelled ancient Swedes to eat that shit (though I would guess fungi or copious amounts of alcohol would be involved) but when you have scientists go "the readings indicate this smells like rancid butthole" you probably shouldn't be putting it in your mouth.

    At least Denmark just has disgusting sausages, chocolate on sandwiches and over-hyped beer.

    Looking though this article of the most disgusting food in America by State, we got nothing

    https://www.thrillist.com/eat/nation/worst-foods-to-eat-states

    My home of Maryland got Ham stuffed with Greens, it's not even that offensive.
    I think the 2 nastiest on the list is Geoduck and St. Louis style Pizza (Fuck Missouri).

    Here is a list of awful food from around the world. There is only one American entry; "Stink head" from Alaska, which is essentially fermented salmon heads.

    I think #3 is the winner.

    Here in Argentina some people eat pork heads, and their feet are used in soups. Roasted cow small intestines (chinchulines) are extremely popular, most asados have them. Seasoned tongues, stomachs (mondongo), brains, udders, hearts, we waste nothing. Carnivorous country, this one.

    I've heard Surstromming is one of the most disgusting things you can eat, I was never interested in trying it.

    I had Durian, it's not that bad. You just have to get over the fact that you are eating a fruit with an odd texture that tastes like onions and old cheese.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian

    I tried A-ping(fried tarantula) in Cambodia, it wasn't that bad if you didn't think about what you were eating. I didn't eat the abdomen, just the head and body. It was kind of bland. The abdomen has intestines, fecal matter and spider eggs. I didn't want to try it.

    He's right. That way you will have something to eat that will overpower the inevitably awful taste of that canned slop. :rofl:

    To be honest, the taste isn't horrible. Then again, I'm Scandinavian and have been raised on pickled herring (which is fucking amazing). The issue is that the smell is so goddamn overpowering it is impossible to taste anything. Sealing that smell for so long means the fish is nose-fucking you to death whether you want to or not.

    Now you are just making up stuff. No actual country bans Surströmming from sale. Airliners baning the fish from being on board is not the law of the land.

    I am sure maggot filled "Cheese" that can kill you literally is far worst from smelly fermented fish.

    I can buy Surströmming in the United States off Amazon.

    Most of our local stuff is pretty delicious. Had some Americans go what the hell but it's nothing like the OP.

    Few examples,

    Beef pie. I know you had pot pies and stuff but it's like, we'll put bacon bits and onion in it and potato with melted cheese on top and all sorts of things. It's basically our hotdog.

    Beef sausage with onion in a slice of bread with ketchup. Sometimes people will put coleslaw on it.

    We sometimes put egg on pizza.

    Crumbed chicken shallow fried with pizza sauce and melted cheese grilled over it, sometimes ham pieces or bacon.

    Various different ways of doing a lamb chop, like a lamb steak basically barbecued with salt, garlic, pepper and onion commonly.

    You know other less common local stuff like barramundi, roos, rock lobster, abalone... nothing too extreme. I guess there is bush food like witchetty grubs but no one seriously sits down and eats a meal out of that, even natives don't it's just for tourists.

    No, I'm serious.
    Granted, the official reason is that the fish is in violation of EU food safety regulation, but let's not kid ourselves; this shit cannot be imported to the EU because it is fucking disgusting, not because of the dioxin/PCB-levels.

    The deadly maggot cheese being even worse is one thing, I was just addressing your claim that Casu Marzu was the only one that wasn't legal =V

    I never claimed it was banned. I claimed it was in violation with EU regulations on PCB- and dioxin-concentrations in food, and thus isn't legal to import to (or make in) other EU-countries than Sweden.

    It's not actually a ban on it, per se. It's that due to the preparation process, it ends up having a higher concentration of certain substances than is permitted by EU law, so it became illegal by default. Sweden were given an exception after some rather heavy lobbying, so it's only illegal to sell and manufacture in any other EU country. But due to the open market this ends up being rather inconsequential since they can't legally prevent the export of it out of Sweden. It's actually relatively common for traditional cuisine that technically breaks EU safety regulations. Sweden also got a similar deal for snus, which is tobacco you put under your lip, though that's actually more harshly regulated due to being nicotine (and also because some nations have a hard time distinguishing it from drugs or some kind of super-nicotine, as my friend could attest after he got caught with a few boxes at the Indian border).

    I could probably post some citations, but unfortunately all the sources I have on hand are in Swedish because we're the only ones who give a fuck.
