The Strangest Food Anthony Bourdain Has Ever Eaten


His attitude of trying anything once has helped him travel the world and get to know the planet through food. A joyful profession, isn't it? Unfortunately, sometimes you gotta swallow some big pills. Being a worldwide foodie can be a hard job and Anthony Bourdain knows it the best. For the past decade and a half, Tony ate some stuff you never thought he would. Yeah, he's a tough guy, But there are dishes not even Anthony Bourdain would like to see again. Here they are. I would say bon appetit, but, you know... 

#1 Balut

Yes, it's as disgusting as it looks like. Back in '06, while visiting Vietnam, Tony ate a balut. For those of you who have no idea what a balut is, let me creep you out: it's an underdeveloped duck egg; a baby duck that never got the chance to hatch. Anthony has described this meal as something that's good once you see past the feathers. FEATHERS?! Let's believe his words, okay?

#2 Hákarl

It's just getting stranger and stranger. During his stay in Iceland, Bourdain tried something that used to be a shark once. When I say "used to", I mean they kicked the hell out of the shark and turned it into something truly disturbing. Hákarl is an ammoniated fermented shark and the single, most disgusting meal Tony ever had. Believe me, he travelled all across the Earth and tried almost everything. Anthony knows when something tastes bad. Seriously, Iceland, what are you thinking?

#3 Stinky Tofu

Andrew Zimmern couldn't eat this, but Tony managed (somehow). Here's a proof tofu can get worse. This piquant dish from Taiwan is quite a challenge. If you can see past the odour, you're left to swallow this... this... I'm out! I know it looks appealing, but if you're not used to eating SPICY and SALTY food, you're gonna hate it. Oh, and the smell... YUCK!

#4 Raw Seal Eyeball

Yup, he ate a seal. Back when he was travelling through Canada, Bourdain spent some time with the Inuits. He ate a piece of seal's liver, kidney, and the eyeball. HE ATE THAT CUTE SEAL'S EYEBALL. And you know what? It tasted "not bad". Eating animal's eyes, brain or tongue is considered a tradition is some parts of the world. But eating that poor seal's eye?! That's sad, bro!

#5 Warthog Anus

Oh, hai! Don't mind me, I'm just gonna eat the part of you where the sun doesn't shine. Okay? Well, it's not okay, and neither did Tony think it's okay! On his trip through Namibia, a chief of one tribe offered him the great honour of eating this pig's butt. Some honour, right? Tony knew he can't turn down the offer and insult the chief. So, he ate the WORST MEAL OF HIS LIFE: an unwashed, dusty, filled-with-sand-and-feces warthog's anus. Beat that, Zimmern!
