When I was a little kid I liked chicken feet, now there's not enough to eat on it to bother with.  Too labor intensive to eat - crabs too - except soft shell crabs!

I have tried some of them. Texture is what stops me from eating some things. I like the taste of chicken feet, but cannot deal with the texture.

Some food comes from the sea or subconscious realms. There is more to it than fish and chips.

Food from the subconscious realms?  I think maybe something was lost in translation there. They should have put sea cucumbers (beche de mere) on the list, something that I like.  Has anyone here ever eaten the fish eye dish?  Fried spiders?

I do not like durians at all, it smells and tastes like rotting creamy onions. I have never tried any of the others on that list, but I have to say, most look and sound quite disgusting

I think Westerners do eat chicken feet, since nearly all Chinese restaurants in the West serve them. But then again those might just be popular among the ethnic Chinese customers.
