Eat Something

{October 12, 2008}   Omnivore’s 100

so feeling rather incompetent at the sweets one I figured I’d take on some of the others in my inbox… so I figure I may as well start at the beginning, with the omnivore one… (I actually saw this at Joelen’s page before I was emailed about it, but still never got around to it…)

The VGT Omnivore’s Hundred: Just bold what you’ve eaten, and cross out what you’d never eat.

1. Venison
2. Nettle tea
3. Huevos rancheros
4. Steak tartare
5. Crocodile
6. Black pudding (I’m too adventurous for my own good)
7. Cheese fondue
8. Carp (not positive… I’m realizing I perhaps eat too many things without knowing what they are…)
9. Borscht
10. Baba ghanoush (not positive, but it’s a super probably maybe and I’ve at least had something very very like this if not…)
11. Calamari
12. Pho
13. PB&J sandwich
14. Aloo gobi (aka. one of the only ways cauliflower is palatable…)
15. Hot dog from a street cart

26. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper
27. Dulce de leche
28. Oysters (unfortunately, however I learn from my mistakes… LOL)
29. Baklava
30. Bagna cauda (didn’t know what it was, but yep turns out it’s one of my favorite things… I suppose I should really learn the names of more things… LOL)
31. Wasabi peas
32. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl (again, not one I’ll repeat…)
33. Salted lassi
34. Sauerkraut
35. Root beer float
36. Cognac with a fat cigar (just the cognac though, quite a few times… LOL)
37. Clotted cream tea
38. Vodka jelly/Jell-O
39. Gumbo (umm, maybe once or twice… *giggles*)
40. Oxtail
41. Curried goat
42. Whole insects
43. Phaal (no, but I soooo should!!)
44. Goat’s milk
45. Malt whisky from a bottle worth £60/$120 or more (entirely probable, but again wasn’t my money so can’t say for sure… but I’m thinking this is a big old yes…)
46. Fugu
47. Chicken tikka masala
48. Eel
49. Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut
50. Sea urchin
51. Prickly pear
52. Umeboshi

54. Paneer
55. McDonald’s Big Mac Meal
56. Spaetzle
57. Dirty gin martini (hey, you live and learn…)
58. Beer above 8% ABV (no, but does this help disguise the hops?)
59. Poutine
60. Carob chips
61. S’mores
62. Sweetbreads
63. Kaolin (perhaps in a medicine, otherwise no…)
64. Currywurst
65. Durian
66. Frogs’ legs
67. Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake
68. Haggis (but because of the blood… eew eew eew…)
69. Fried plantain
70. Chitterlings, or andouillette (oh, I remember when I was little and I’d beg daddy for chitlins and he would never ever make them, but fortunately in the south it’s easy to buy them prepared so he’d still let me have them now and then… but secretly, I think it bothered him… LOL odd considering the things he’s eaten…)
71. Gazpacho
72. Caviar and blini
73. Louche absinthe
74. Gjetost, or brunost
75. Roadkill (I don’t want to know if I have… but it’s quite possible…)
76. Baijiu
77. Hostess Fruit Pie
78. Snail
79. Lapsang souchong
80. Bellini (not officially with Prosecco, but with a different sparkling wine yes… I’ve had a knock of bellini…)
81. Tom yum
82. Eggs Benedict (made me sickier than sick, but c’est la vie…)
83. Pocky (again no, but yes to a knock off…)
84. Tasting menu at a three-Michelin-star restaurant.
85. Kobe beef (yes, and eating it well done was somewhat akin to sacrilidge apparently… as I got the evil eye… LOL)
86. Hare
87. Goulash
88. Flowers
89. Horse
90. Criollo chocolate (not absolutely sure…)
91. Spam
92. Soft shell crab
93. Rose harissa
94. Catfish
95. Mole poblano
96. Bagel and lox (possibly, my dad eats it and he can be pushy with “try this” so maybe as a kid I did)
97. Lobster Thermidor
98. Polenta
99. Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee
100. Snake

My Score: 50 – I knew I’d had, 29 – I didn’t know what they were (2 of which I’d actually had) for a total of 52/100 (plus with 9 maybes, that could approach 61…) I have few nevers, 4, but a grand 19 “I wouldn’t eagerly stand in line for but might try if placed in front of me” ones!!
