Mind you, if I was starving I would eat a beetle as long as its not halal.

I am not religious, but this does not make me anti religion.

I prefer not to have horse, cat or dog on my menu. Other than that I've tried alligator, rattlesnake, ostrich, bear, rabbit, deer, elk, squirrel, escargot, bison and a few other things. I have my limits.

There are things you could never get me to eat -- durian for example, and I'm not much for the lardy stuff they call Shanghai cuisine.

I've never eaten horse meat.  Ever since cavalry became obsolete there haven't been many horses around.  Ever tried water buffalo?

One thing the Americans have that you can't find in Vietnam is what we call "Western Chicken," but Americans call "Turkey."  (I wonder what the Turks think of that).  It is delicious stuff but I just can't find it here.

I try to avoid things like pork and cat and dog and rat since they are either carnivores or omnivores, and therefore unhealthy.  Those who think they are a delicacy have their noses out of joint.  Its a big con like "fine wine" from Dalat.

Cobra is a delicacy in Cambodia.  Whenever I visit the locals have a hunting expedition and find one for me.  I pretend to be delighted, but actually it tastes just like chicken.

I dread to think just what I've eaten in my years of globe-trotting, but I'm still here so perhaps my grandfather's old saying ..."What won't fatten will fill" is about right.

May I ask what your criteria are for these limitations?

I love durians. I wish I could buy them here. they have the added bonus of keeping people away too!

I would try durian, I think...but I haven't smelled one yet so I'm not sure. :P  Never had water buffalo or rat, but would give it a shot. Rattlesnake tastes like chicken too. If I hadn't cleaned it and cooked it I would have probably been a little more open to eating it. As it was, it was a little difficult for me to get over the ick factor.

Besides the three I mentioned, it would probably be how rude it would be to turn up my nose at a meal someone went to the trouble to cook for me.

Close your eyes and try to imagine the outcome of throwing a grenade into a cesspool and then falling backwards into an old farmyard slurry pit. You ain't even close!
