Chicken Feet! Although the appearance is maybe not very appealing and once you get over that it is actually a chicken's feet, you will quickly realise "This does taste like chicken!" These wrinkly claws are delicious (mostly sold out by 9 AM!!!) in a meal or as a snack on your next BBQ!
Pig uterus is up next! Crispy on the outside soft on the inside, this popular snack is easy to find anywhere with street food. However, who could tell it is uterus from the picture???
Snake soup! This is a gourmet dish very popular in winter, is said to be very nutritious and good for one’s spiritual balance as the positive “Yin” energy will combat against the cold, negative “Yang” energy especially during the months of winter.

Geoduck! Pronounced "gooeyduck", it could not be any further from a duck ever! The world's largest burrowing clam might, at first sight, give you the giggles! But once you have overcome this initial reaction seeing this weird thing that looks like it could be the grandchild of "Jabba the Hutt" (and some other things), you can dig in and taste the sweet, clear and tender meat, served raw, seared, sautéed, or as sushi, in soups or hot pots.
