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.

Mostly so in their appearance. Their flavor isn't anything unusual, and their consistency isn't really significantly different from that of your standard spaghetti noodle, but they look like they're made of jello and that's plenty strange enough for this thread.

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

What you did there. I see it.

Speaking of bugs...

I wouldn't be a true bizarre food aficionado if I could not say that I had eaten bugs before. The fact is, I have, and I can tell you that they aren't as bad as they look. Not something I would recommend, because you aren't missing much flavor-wise, but there's nothing disgusting about them.

Actually, that beetle pie would look pretty good if it wasn't for that disgusting feta cheese.

Looks like a licorice-flavored pulled pork sandwich.

Hmmm.... all those vermin-based dishes are really bugging me....

:D

Glass noodles are slightly more chewy and slippery than regular noodles, but you're right, it is rather tough to notice if you don't eat spaghetti noodles very often.

And now for something completely different....

Baby mice, from the looks of it. Octopuses don't look anything like that, baby or not. Suspicious though that it's the only picture I can find of it.

I read the article that the image comes from, and I think you misread it. Baby octopus is mentioned in a slightly different context.

By the way, all the "food" in that article is bupkis except for the scorpions on a stick.
