That sounds incredible. I would eat that every day if it existed outside of Japan.

OMFG! That looks so ******* good!!! Another reason I want to go to Japan ^^

I should have checked this earlier...

well, ernie, the sandwich was available in Florida (of course, since that was where I had it...) and it was available for the summer lineup.

I'm guessing the meatballs in the picture are the grilled armadillo? Everything else looks like chicken.

I just read through every page of this thread (except page 17 because Chrome blocked it) and while it was one of the most interesting learning experiences I've had recently, I was also very surprised at how many of those bizarre foods I have actually encountered in my everyday life.

I dreamed about bizarre food flavors a few nights ago. Bizarre soda flavors to be exact. I was in some really big store, and the soda aisle had some crazy flavors. Caramel was one of them, I believe, and Coca-Cola had an apricot-flavored drink. Needless to say, I was only disappointed when I woke up and none of the flavors existed.

well, ernie, the sandwich was available in Florida (of course, since that was where I had it...) and it was available for the summer lineup.

I don't plan on going anywhere near Florida this summer, so I guess the BK Memphis BBQ burger is out of the question.

Those are actually what are known as Armadillo Eggs, which, despite the name, contain no armadillo or egg. An Armadillo Egg is a sausage stuffed with a jalapeno stuffed with cheese. Quite misleading if you ask me.

You never know how bizarre your everyday food items may be until you look at them from the MBFF perspective. That's what I'm here for.

There's just something that displeases me about this thread, the name. Its 2013, not 2012.

Indeed, that is an excellent point, and I've been looking into it for some time. At this moment, I'm not sure where to go with MBFF; I'm currently debating whether I want to keep this thread alive and change the title slightly, or start another thread entirely for 2013. I'll have to see where this one goes, or doesn't go if that turns out to be the case.

This is so very true. I've been eating these clear "glass" noodles at Korean-owned restaurants for years and I never stop to think about what an unusual food they really are.

They are as delicious as they are translucent, which is pretty delicious if the image doesn't make the translucency clear enough for you. :D
