Bucket List

Updated 27 May 2014

This is where you can find my dining, drinking, and dish bucket lists along with the reviews that got the particular places on the rolls.  If anyone has further recommendations for places to hit throughout the world, feel free to let me know at ben@beneats.com.  I’m looking for not only places that have amazing/gourmet/expensive food, but also ones offer different experiences, foods that would be different for my Western palate, places that would be considered ‘authentic’ for the area, or just your personal favorites.  If you’ve tried any of these, I’d also love to hear about them.




I’m warning you ahead of time that these links can tend to be pretty graphic…you might not want to continue past this point.  I have a rule that I’ll try (probably) any food once, and these ones are on my list for sometime in the future.

  • Fugu
  • Haggis
  • Bird’s Nest Soup
  • Kangaroo
  • Canard à la Rouennaise (Be warned…not for the faint of heart…or vegetarians)
  • Ortolan (a bit more graphic than the last, and illegal in the EU)
  • Frog Sashimi (preceded by a first course that is still moving, so now you know that before you click)
  • Hákarl
  • Casu Marzu (This sounds absolutely disgusting, and it pushes the limits of my try-anything-once rule.  The first guy to eat it in the video compares it to a strong, rich, smooth Stilton.  Gordon Ramsey tries it with a grimace and lets out an immediate curse.)
  • Durian (I’ve had the chance to buy one of these nearby, but not wanting to stink up my kitchen I have avoided doing so.)
  • Mjólkursoðinn lundi
  • Þorrablót (Not a food, but an Icelandic festival where many types of rare Nordic foods are served, including the Hákarl from above.)
  • Odori Ebi
