If you dare dinner

Last week my hubby and I went to my brothers house for an if you dare dinner. I had never heard of it before and it was super fun. A few people brought and made different things so we had tons of variety. I'm sure they thought I was odd for taking lots of pictures but I couldn't help it.
First we have a meal from Africa. What you do is wet your hands in the bowl of water and then grab a small portion of the dough. You roll it in a ball, dip it in the sauce and then swallow it whole. I wasn't brave enough to try this but I heard it wasn't too bad.

One of my brother's roommates is a chef and he made some cury soup. I did eat this but only because it was on rice. :)

He also made some poched crab. It was sad to watch... They put them in the pan ALIVE!! (Sorry to any vegitarians...) When they did it I couldn't help but to think of the little mermaid. "It must be hot in that big silver pot." I think that's how the quote went.

This first soda is from Japan. The top has a marble in it that you pop down. It rolls back into the hole when you drink so you don't drink too much. It's pretty fun! This next drink is from Jamaca but they drink it in alot of different places. My husband fell in love with it in Venezuala. I think it's gross.
This nasty looking stuff comes from Japan. It's fremented beans... MMMmmm. It comes out nice and stringy.

They put raw egg in it and some other stuff (I can't remember) and eat it. Sorry I wasn't brave enough to try this either. I'm glad that I was never offered this in Japan since there I wouldn't have been able to turn it down.

Pot stickers are always good. Mmmmm....

This fruit is found in Asia. I had it in China a couple times. You peel off the outter shell and eat the white fruit inside. It's pretty good but it was too much work for me to eat any more than one. In china they would sell it on the streets but they would peel the outside for you.

Korean Ramen. This is one of my favorite things to eat. I had it ALL the time in High School and when I lived in China. It's SUPER hott but you get use to it and learn to LOVE it.

And thank goodness someone had brought over cookies because they were SOOO good. I munched on a few of these. They were most of my dinner. lol.

That sounds like a lot of fun! Some of those things do look scary to eat. But that is really cool.

What? No Bundiggi? (however it's spelled...it's silkworm larvae fried in Korea). Now you know why I won't eat crab, lobster or anything like that. I HATE the way they are cooked.
