Exotic & delicacy food

On the first look, some food could hardly be classified as exotic or delicacies. Consider this:
If I wasn't told that sago worms tasted creamy or like "fried butter", I would have thought that they are food for some lucky acquarium fish! I saw sago worms for sales but never in such a large quantity before which I came across in Limbang Tamu (market).
Ok, talking about durian, this king of fruits must be a favourite amongst many local. But many foreigners also like this fruit very much. This year, durian is voted the 5th weirdest food in the world. Durian flesh is decribed by our foreign friends as a custard-like texture. Anthony Bordain may have described it the best when he said, "its taste can only be described as...indescribable, something you will either love or despise. ...Your breath will smell as if you'd been French-kissing your dead grandmother."
I don't mind eating durian but indeed, the breath is offensive!

Andy, I heard that it was eaten raw before! Now, I found someone who actually tried it and liked it...
