Weird Food and Drinks. One is bound to come across it at some point in your life if you love venturing outside of your home town. However, this usually means there are some oddball delicacies you won’t find anywhere else – or want to try for that matter! Whenever I travel, I like sampling the local food and drinks in every country that I visit.
如果你喜歡離開自己的家鄉去冒險,那么將注定不期而遇一些怪誕的食物和飲料。一般來說,這意味著,你是無法在任何其他地方找到這些稀奇古怪的佳肴的---或者你會因此而嘗試之!在旅行的時候,我喜歡列出所造訪國家特有的飲食品種。

Here is 52 Travel Tips for Weird Food and Drinks
下文是52條關于怪誕飲食的旅行小貼士。

1. Chicla Beer, Bolivia. Chicla Beer is fermented from corn instead of barley, and looks like a yellow cloudy concoction. Tastes like alcoholic corn syrup. It’s an acquired taste.
Chicla啤酒:產自玻利維亞,是用玉米替代大麥發酵而成的,看起來像一種黃色渾濁的混合飲料,嘗起來像帶有酒味的玉米糖漿。這是一種獨特的口味。

2. Warthog Pie, Namibia. Tastes like lean pork. Quite nice.
Warthog餡餅:產自納米比亞,嘗起來是瘦肉的味道。非常美味

3. Horse Sausage, Kazakhstan. Lean and salty.
馬肉香腸:產自薩克斯坦,咸味瘦肉。

4. Baron’s Black Wattle Ale, Australia. This unusual but tasty brew is fermented from barley and native wattle seeds and resembles a light bodied stout.
男爵黑荊樹淡。寒a自澳大利亞,該與眾不同但很美味的啤酒由大麥和本地黑荊樹的種子發酵而得,類似清淡的黑啤。

5. Guinea Pig, Peru. There’s not much meat on Guinea Pigs, and the bit that you do ingest is usually dry and salty. They are served whole, with the head, eyes and teeth facing towards you. It’s hard to eat one of these when you had one as a pet during childhood.
Guinea豬:產自秘魯,這種豬不太長肉,你咽下去的豬肉是又干又咸的。整只豬地端上來,頭、眼睛和牙齒對著你。如果你在小時候養過這樣的寵物的話,可能會很難下口。

6. Haggis, Scotland. Basically, offal encased by more offal.
肉餡羊肚:產自蘇格蘭,基本上,碎屑里頭還是碎屑。

7. Rakija, Balkans Region. A spirit distilled from fermented plums, towards the rocket fuel end of the alcohol spectrum. Guaranteed to send you into orbit.
Rakija酒:產自巴爾干地區,一種從發酵過的李子中蒸餾出來的烈酒。它保證會像火箭的燃料一樣把你送上航天軌道。

8. Horse Steak, Switzerland. Like cow, but leaner and tougher. Expensive at around $40 per kilogram.
馬排:產自瑞士,像奶牛的牛排一樣,但是吃起來更精更硬。這種肉排賣得很貴,大約要40美元一公斤。

9. Chip Sandwich, New Zealand. Potato chips between two slices of bread and tomato sauce. Carbohydrate overload.
炸土豆條三明治:產自新西蘭,土豆條被放在兩片面包之間,抹上番茄醬。超高糖含量。

10. Deep Fried Mars Bars, Scotland. A heart attack in a chocolate bar.
油炸火星巧克力棒:產自蘇格蘭,讓人心頭一顫的巧克力棒。

11. Drinking Beer in La Paz, Bolivia. La Paz is about 4000 metres above sea level (about 12000 ft). At this altitude, atmospheric pressure is considerably less than at sea level, so the carbonated bubbles in beer escape more rapidly. This means beer foam literally pours out of the bottle as soon as the cap is removed. Frustrating.
La Paz的啤酒:產自玻利維亞。La Paz海拔4000米(12000英尺)。在這個海拔上,大氣壓遠遠低于海平面,所以啤酒里的氣泡會被更快地釋放出來。這就意味著一打開啤酒瓶蓋,泡沫就會噴出來。杯具。

12. All You Can Eat Meat, Buenos Aires, Argentina. You have a red and green coloured wooden block placed on the table. Green means more meat, red means stop. Waiters come around and literally chomp off large slabs of protein onto your plate until you’ve eaten so much meat, the meal sends you into a long hibernation. A vegetarian’s worst nightmare.
布宜諾斯艾利斯的全肉宴:產自阿根廷。桌上放著很多紅紅綠綠的木塊。綠色表示接著上肉,紅的表示吃夠了。服務業走來走去并且大塊地往你盤里切蛋白質直到你吃了很多肉,這足以讓你冬眠很長一段時間了。這是素食主義者的噩夢。

13. Small Size Drinks, United States. Like large sized drinks in the rest of the world.
小杯供應的飲料:產自美國,正如其他地方的大杯裝的飲料一樣。

14. Crocodile Sausage, Australia. Like salty chicken, but quite tasty.
鱷魚香腸:產自澳大利亞,有點像腌雞,但是口味更重。

15. Kangaroo and Emu Steaks, Australia. Australia must be the only country where people can eat their national emblems. Actually, they are both very good for you – kangaroo meat has high protein, and low fat (<1%).
袋鼠和鴯鹋的肉排:產自澳大利亞,澳洲可能是唯一一個吃作為國家象征的動物的國家。其實,這些肉排很有益健康,袋鼠肉高蛋白而低脂肪。

16. Vegemite, Australia. A black, tacky, salty yeast extract to spread on toast.
Vegemite果醬:產自澳大利亞,一種黑色、有粘性的咸酵母,涂在烤面包上。

17. Beefy Bovril, England. Like Vegemite, but fermented from cows with the consistency of treacle.
牛肉汁:產自英格蘭,就像Vegemite果醬一樣,但是用奶牛肉和糖漿發酵而成的。

18. Caparinha, Brazil. Do you wonder why Brazilians seem to party hard? Caparinhas are the reason why. A spirit called Cachaca is distilled from sugar cane juice, served straight over ice with limes and sugar crystals to make the Caparinha. It’s happiness in a glass.
Caparinha酒:產自巴西。你想知道巴西人為什么那么不合群嗎?Caparinha酒就是一個理由。一種通過蒸餾甘蔗汁獲得的Cachaca酒,用冰塊和糖塊加工成Caparinha酒。這種酒很好喝。

19. Baby Beef, Argentina. Ironically, the only thing baby about the beef is the age. I’ve had one that was 700 grams and took me a week to digest. I didn’t bother with entree or salad.
牛羔肉:產自阿根廷。諷刺的是,判斷牛羔的方式是年齡。我吃了一塊700克的肉,后來花了一周時間才消化完。我不反對混著配菜和色拉一起吃。

20. Kopi Luwak Coffee, Indonesia. This coffee is made from beans that have been digested by the Asian Palm Civet (a cat sized mammal). That is, the coffee beans are removed from the Civet faeces and processed! Apparently, the enzymes in the Civet’s stomach remove some of the bitter coffee taste. It’s the most expensive coffee in the world, selling between $100 and $600 per pound!
Kopi Luwak咖啡:產自印度尼西亞,這種咖啡是用經過一種亞洲棕櫚麝香貓(貓般大小的哺乳動物)消化以后的咖啡豆加工的。也就是說,這種咖啡豆是從麝香貓的排泄物里分離出來的!顯然,麝香貓胃里的酶提純了咖啡的苦味。這是全世界最昂貴的咖啡,每磅的定價從100到600美元不等!

21. Flaming Chorizo, Portugal. Chorizo is a delicious sausage flavoured with paprika and other spices, and is usually smoked. You can eat it as is, or have it served over a flame fuelled by a spirit. Make sure to extinguish the flame before eating.
冒火星的熏豬肉腸:產自葡萄牙。這種肉腸放了紅辣椒和別的辣味調料,通常是熏過的,非常美味。你可以直接吃,也可以在點燃酒精的火星上烤著吃。務必撲滅火星再吃!

22. Vodka, Kazakhstan. Vodka in itself is not that strange, but entering a supermarket with a dedicated vodka aisle containing different types from other regions and countries is.
伏特加:產自哈薩克斯坦,伏特加本身并不奇怪,但是超市里精心布置的陳列各式伏特加的走廊相比別的國家和地區卻是獨樹一幟。

23. Springbok Cocktail, South Africa. The Springbok is a two-alcohol drink containing a green layer of mint-tasting liqueur not dissimilar to mouthwash, overlain by a creamy layer of Amarula, a milky drink fermented from the native Marula fruit. The dangers of drinking a Springbok lie not in the actual drink itself, but the drinking ritual. It involves placing both hands behind the back, stomping the feet alternately, snorting through the nostrils, squealing, picking up the Springbok shot glass via front teeth, and sculling the drink without spilling a drop.
Springbok雞尾酒:產自南非,這種雞尾酒是兩種酒精飲品調配而成的,上面浮著一層綠色帶薄荷味的漱口水作用的液體。下面是一層Amarula奶油——用一種叫Amarula的水果發酵制得的奶飲料。喝Springbok雞尾酒的危險之處并不在于飲料本身,而是喝飲料時的儀式。這種儀式需要把雙手放到背后,輪流重重地踏腳跳舞,用鼻子發出哼聲,尖聲長嘯并且用門牙叼起酒杯一飲而盡,而又不能有液體流到嘴邊。

24. Kava, Fiji. It’s a plant that is crushed and mixed with water, and drunk in groups. Effects include mild sedation, numbing of the mouth, and vivid dreams. Usually drunk in a group.
Kava酒:產自斐濟,把一種叫Kava的植物碾碎然后倒入水,很多人在一起喝。效果包括:輕微鎮定,喃喃自語,和產生生動的幻覺。通常很多人在一起喝。

26. Jellyfish Rings, China. A salty rubber band type appetizer.

27. Durian, South East Asia. A smelly fruit whose odour can often resemble rotten meat. They are banned on Singapore’s Mass Transit System (there are even No Durian signs there!).

Ugali:產自肯尼亞,作為淀粉的替代品,這種食物會粘住你的上顎。這是在很多非洲國家是一種主食。

拆骨肉:產自葡萄牙。走進任何超市或者熟食店,你能夠明顯地看到從豬腿上剔下來的肉。事實上,那里有各種豬腿,得看你的口味選擇了。

30. Fish Heads, Philippines. Filipinos like fish-head stews and soups boiled up from fish heads.
魚頭:產自菲律賓,菲律賓人很喜歡喝燉魚頭湯,或者煮魚頭湯。

31. Spam, Philippines. Spam (SPiced hAM) is a staple diet of many Filipinos and is found in almost every food cupboard in the Philippines. There is even a restaurant in Manila called SpamJam, which specialises in Spam dishes. The menu sounds like a Monty Python sketch (Spam with spaghetti, Spamburger, etc).
Spam午餐肉:產自菲律賓。Spam是一種辣肉,作為很多菲律賓人的主食,你可以在菲律賓幾乎所有的食品柜里看到。在Manila甚至有一家餐館,叫做SpamJam,那里做特殊的Spam菜。菜單讀起來像Monty巨蟒一樣潦草——Spam加細面條,Spam漢堡包,等等。

32. Borewors, South Africa. These fatty but tasty sausages are basically intestines stuffed with meat and offcuts, spiced with herbs and cooked on a braai (barbeque). The strange thing about Borewors is their presentation – coiled up like a dog poo. Worth the extra artery coating.
Borewors:產自南非,很多用腸子塞起來的肥濃香腸,混雜了肉塊,還有香草和燒烤調料的碎末。這種叫Borewors的奇特食物是根據它的形狀得名的——一圈圈的很像狗屎,值得特別包裝。

33. Blood, Kenya/Tanzania. The Masai people survive on fresh blood drawn from the neck veins of livestock such as cows and goats. Liquid protein.

The locals then catch a bus to sell the ice blocks to a sorbet vendor in another town for only one (1) U.S. Dollar per block! The sorbet vendor says this is cheaper than buying factory ice, and the quality is better.
冰川果汁冰糕:產自厄瓜多爾,當地人住在Chimborazo火山附近,他們定期步履艱難地爬上山頂去采集50公斤冰塊。他們把驢子牽到海拔5000米的地方,每頭驢馱兩塊冰。然后他們乘著公交車去賣冰塊給另一個鎮上的冰糕小店,每塊冰1美元。那些小店的店主說,這些冰塊比工廠里生產的更質優價廉。

樹蜜:產自坦桑尼亞,Akei族位于坦桑尼亞北部,族人通常要去很遠的地方覓食。他們的一直主食是樹蜜。他們用手直接伸入中空的樹干里去取樹蜜和蜜蜂窩,所以他們整個身軀都會被數以百計的密封叮蜇。有趣的是,很多的Akei族人對蜜蜂的叮咬免疫。

40. Entire Crocodile, Ethiopia. During long droughts, some tribes have to resort to hunting crocodiles at night for food. However, they do this with a canoe, a couple of flashlights, and two spears. Sometimes they haul 5 metre monsters into their barely swamp-worthy canoes. However, since no refrigerator exists, the entire animal is cooked up and eaten in one sitting.
完整的鱷魚:產自埃塞俄比亞,經過很長時間的干旱,一些種族必須在夜間狩獵鱷魚充饑。但他們只有獨木舟、一些電筒和兩柄長矛。有時候他們能把5米長的鱷魚艱難地拖回來。由于沒有冰箱,他們只能把整條鱷魚烤熟,然后一頓吃完。
