chinese food is one of top four in Aus

always a battle between Italian, Thai, Indian and Chinese

Chinese is often the winner

Snails get to roam free here - not many predators

One of my Dutch friends told me that the Dutch do eat snakes caught from the river.  I also remember reading from a magazine that people in rural Spain do eat rats that are caught in the grain fields. Some European also like to eat rotten cheese with live maggots on it.
People in Iceland love to eat fermented shark meat,  and it seems that peoples in Sweden and Norway do enjoy eating foul smelling fermented fish too.

luly, the Dutch water snake is a reptile. I know this may be too much for you scientifically or religiously.

Sigh!!
I think you're just ignorant and prejudiced.
My Dutch friend knows the difference between an eel and a snake.
If it's eel, he would say it's eel,
but if it's snake then he would say it's snake.

The Europeans are not like the Jews who need to observe strict dietary rules,
there's clear division between clean and unclean animals.
Clean animals - e.g cattle, sheep, goats, chickens etc.
Unclean animals - e.g Pigs, rabbits, camels, eels, snakes, frogs, snails
certain kind of fishes, etc.
Europeans eat all kinds of animals, both clean and unclean, no religious dietary rules.
Even in the U.S there're people who eat rattle snakes!!
