Fear Factor but for real!!

So this might seem adolescent, ok it is...

But, I'm looking for food that might be considered dangerous or disgusting...
fugu, live squid, blood pudding, whatever I'm open for all suggestions and trying to call out a friend who says he'll eat anything...I guess really spicy food would work too

    1. Dim sum will allow you try try a number of Fear Factorish items. You can try the chicken feet (either hot stewed with a variety of spices, or cold dipped in red vinegar) and pigs blood.

      A steamed geese intestine dish is available at many cantonese restaurants. My favorite is from Full House in Arcadia.

      Phoenix Food Boutique (many locations, including Arcadia and Rowland Heights) has duck tongue. I've never had theirs, but duck tongue in general is pretty tasty.

      1. How about Balut (sp?)? You can find it at most Philipino markets/community.

        I have had Fugu (okay), live octopus/squid (food that bite back), live fish/shellfish, bugs, etc... so I would say that I am an adventurious eater, BUT I WILL NEVER TRY BALUT!
