Have you watched Andrew Zimmern in his Bizarre Foods of Asia at Travel Channel? Okay, it’s actually a repeated show where my younger daughter kept watching and never get bored over and over again. She said that she wanted to be like him someday, to travel and search for the most unique and bizarre food in the world.
While she was watching TV the other night where Andrew featured the Philippines, (was first aired February of 2007) I joined with my daughter and witnessed how Andrew actually tasted different exotic and unique food that can only be found in the Philippines. He said that eating ice cream in a bun is something different. It’s more fun in the Philippines right?
What else did he eat during his trip in the Philippines? He ate Balot and Tokneneng, Water Crickets, Soup #5, Mangrove Worms, Coconut Grubs, Okoy, Bamboo Shoots and Stuffed Frog.
