The American TV show ‘Bizzare Foods with Andrew Zimmern’…. Aaaah.. now you remember this bald man who eats all types of living things which we don’t define as food.If you have watched this, you would know every country has some bizzare food in their daily diet. Click here to know what I am writing about.
I also happened to stumble upon this post about bizzare food served in India which includes buffalo spleen in Pune, red ant chutney in Chattisgarh, frog legs in Sikkim, Hilsa fish eggs in Bengal and snail stew in Nagaland! Yes, that’s right. Even we have our share of bizzare food.
The title ‘bizzare’ or ‘weird’ simply falls upon food as we live in different parts of the world. For instance, scorpions and insects are a favorite of the Chinese but bizzare for Indians, though we are neighboring countries! In India, the meat which is much talked about, banned and considered a sin-‘BEEF’ is rest of the world’s favorite. So in my opinion people who waste their time, energy and tax payers’ money discussing about banning beef in India should just pack their bags and travel. Travelling would most likely awaken their gray matter, make them modest and realize what a tiny place they occupy in this world. Humans have different tastes and preferences depending on which part of the world they are living. If you are banning food for your countrymen’s well being, consider banning carbonated drinks and high-sodium junk food which have become a daily diet. These are probably causing more harm than red meat.
Concluding my small speech, let me get to the core of the post. Accra supermarkets also surprised me with the variety of meat, which are part of diet here but will not find way to an Indian home.

Presenting some interesting snaps. The level of weirdness will ascend with each picture. We will start with less bizzare and end up with the most bizzare. Hope you survive till last!
