  8. I have add a couple creepy crawly things fried on sticks in Beijing when the the streets are lined at night with white tents for market.

    And, at a local restaurant called "Typhoon" at the Santa Monica Airport in California.
    Nothing dangerous, and all fried twice, so all you can taste is the outside crunchy fried batter which takes all the fun out of trying something new, and odd, and interesting.
