Would You Eat the 5 Most Exotic Foods in the World?

Absolutely yes to number 1, 2, 3 and 4. Definitely no to number 5. I am an exotic person, but I just realize I am not that exotic to eat saliva bird coming from  a bird nest.

5 of the Most Exotic Foods in the World:


Kobe Beef comes from the best quality cows in the world. Cows fed high quality grass and beer, then they get daily massages to tenderize their meat. 1 kilo of this beef can cost $770 or more.


Densuke Watermelon  is crisper on the inside. They are tender and very rare.  One watermelon can cost up to $6,100 dollars!


White truffles aren’t called kitchen diamonds for nothing. Their price can fetch from 2,000 to 8,000 euros per kilogram. And which country do they call the Land of Truffles? It’s Serbia alright! Serbia is the real-deal White Truffle Garden of Eden. Just one pound can cost between $1,360 and $4,200 Euros.


Priced at a staggering $600 per pound, this crumbly white cheese is not even available on the commercial market, with its high cost attributed to the considerable time and resources needed for production. While most cheeses are made using cow, goat or sheep milk, this cheese is made from the milk of a Balkan donkey, native only to Serbia and Montenegro, and requires 25 litres of milk to produce just one kilogram of Pule.


Bird’s Nest Soup is possibly the weirdest and most expensive soup in the world and has been served in China as a delicacy for over 400 years. It is made up of the saliva nests built by birds called cave swifts and is then dissolved in water to create a gelatinous soup. It’s believed that the spit has many nutritional and medicinal uses as one pound of this spit can cost over $4,535.

        I almost did – I have heard of that, but never have seen a picture – I think you said gross and I agree with you. When I read the ingredients I thought “who would want to eat that, delicacy or not??”
