Disgusting Foods From Across The World Are On Display

The fascinating dishes on display include fermented shark from Iceland, cooked guinea pig from Andea, foul-smelling Durian fruit from Thailand, Chinese delicacy of wine filled with baby mice, spicy rabbit heads and fruit bat soup from Guam.

Museum Curator Wants To Expose Visitors To Regional Delicacies And Increase Acceptance

But what is the purpose of this crazy Disgusting Food Museum? Museum curator and psychologist Dr. Samuel West wants to instil in us the age-old proverb ‘One man’s food is another man’s poison’. By exposing his visitors to these regional delicacies, he hopes to explore the cultural subjectivity of food and build a sense of wider acceptance of each other’s cultures and cuisine. Interestingly, people eat locust dishes across the world. 

Fruit Bat

It  Also Features Cooked Guinea Pigs & Fried Tarantula

This Disgusting Food Museum also has American favourites like root beer and Jell-O salad featured alongside cooked guinea pigs and a fried tarantula. Dr.Samuel has done this to state the fact that even popular American fare like these may not be appealing for people of another culture like the Swedes.
