There seem to be a fair number of things that I probably should have had by now - Bagna Cauda leaps to mind here. Otherwise, there are things that require special travel (fugu) and things that I wouldn't have thought to eat (clay).

I'ma finish it, I think.

I've had crocodile (pan-fried), and it's true about them tasting somewhere between fish & chicken, I've sometimes thought about trying to replicate it by combining chicken mince with minced whiting and a dash of fish sauce. The meat is almost as tender as fish as well.

I've had alligator, which I recall being similar. The list seemed specific enough that I didn't want to lay claim without having the genuine article.

FWIW, I have had a outrageously spiced vindaloo from the back streets of London. Never the phall, though... I chickened out.

*checks out a phall recipe* - yes, I can see why. I've had habanero sauce & might have even used an actual fresh one, but 20 in a dish would be a bit on the extreme side for those of us who haven't grown up on chilli
