The food represents a great deal of every nation culture. Some of the national kitchens are famous and the whole world embraced some of their meals, like the Italian for example (somebody said Pizza?!). In this gallery, we will show you some weird food that’s not so famous meals from all around the world which probably most of you haven’t try. They’re, as you will see in the photos, mildly put, weird. Yes, we should not judge the meals we haven’t tasted, but I dare you to do that going through this gallery!
