10 Totally Sumptuous but Disgusting Looking Foods

It is said that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. A true saying, it holds true for women as well. Everybody loves good food, as well as a good meal holds the key to your mood for the entire day. We all have our favourites as well as preferences, as well as more often than not, it is the sight as well as the smell of food that we analyze to decide if we will find a particular dish tasty. Hence high end restaurants take so much more effort in the presentation of the dish apart from just the preparation. Food for people varies with their region hence there are a variety of different cuisines around the world. If you are a food connoisseur you will know that the appearance of a dish alone is not an indication of its taste. Here is a list of the top 10 totally sumptuous but disgusting looking food.

10. Caviar

9. Truffles

8. Laing

7. Mussels

6. Olive Tapenade

5. Oysters

4. Hasma

3. Escargots

2. Squid

1. Balut

Greatly loved in the Philippines as well as Cambodia, this widely eaten dish sounds as gruesome as it looks. Balut is actually a duck egg with a foetus inside which has been in gestation for about eighteen to twenty days, wherein the duck foetus assumes a feathery appearance. The preparation technique involves boiling it for a considerable amount of time, as well as it is also used in dishes usually prepared with egg. As gross as it sounds Balut has a uniquely desirable taste on account of the crunchiness which is due to the unborn duck bones. A cherished delicacy for some, it can creep you out to be eating a duck foetus, which feels a lot like eating a baby bird since you can see the head as well as the developing flesh as well as rest of the yucky developing duck organs. It’s a daring dish no doubt, but for those of you adventurous connoisseurs it is not to be missed!
