Strange foods that you might not want to try in Bali

Deep fried dragonflies

Sago worms

Okay, not many of us like seeing worms, or even considering touching them. However, in Bali the sago worms are considered a delicacy. These worms are really big, fat worms that are looking nasty instead of delicious.

If you are eating in a restaurant and they are offering you a stew, you might want to make sure about what the ingredients of this stew might be. This is because most of these stews have some sago worms in as ingredients. For them, this is something that is making any stew extra special.

Cobra blood

With the dragonflies and the sago worms, you might think that there aren’t any more crazy and strange foods that you can find in Bali. However, this isn’t true at all. You might be surprised to find out that there is a drink that especially men are drinking that you might want to pass.

You might even think that this is an exotic cocktail when you read cobra blood on the menu. But, be careful, this isn’t an exotic cocktail, but really the blood of a cobra. And, to make it worse the blood is still warm. They belief in this drinks, but you might not find this tasty at all.

Traveling to all parts of the world, it normally means that you are coming across some strange foods that you can eat. Food that you might not consider eating at all, at home. When you are visiting Bali, you will find that there is some really weird food that only people with a “strong” stomach can consume. Things like dragonflies, sago worms and even real cobra blood. But, if you want to have the full Bali experience, you might want to ask locals where you can get some of these tasty snacks to try.
