Dine . . . and Die!
Trifter has posted a wonderful list of the seven deadliest delicacies. Some (such as fugu, shown above) have already earned posts on this blog. But some may come as splendid surprises!
My favorite? The delectable "San Nak Ji" . . .
"San Nak Ji or live octopus is a popular delicacy in Korea and Japan. The enjoyment of eating this food is when the octopus is still moving with the tentacles sticking to the roof of the mouth. The challenge is to munch and swallow the live octopus without choking. It is reported that there are on average of 6 deaths due to choking (on live octopus), each year in South Korea."
The entire list, plus videos and pictures can be found here!
