Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern

Full episode of television show Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern when they visited Japan (Season 3 in 2008). The bizarreness is from American viewers’ perspective but a few of the dishes are unusual even for Japanese people.

Update: They deleted the video, unfortunately.

The foods includes river eels, sea squirts, stone fish liver, bluefin tuna eyeballs, mayonnaise fondue and milkshake, octopus egg sac, sea cucumber egg jerky, turtle blood sake, octopus ice cream, pit viper ice cream, beef tongue ice cream, horumon, takoyaki, raw horse mane, funazushi, squid ink soup, tuna eyes stew in mirin, giant sea snail, sea snake soup, and raw goat testicles with scrotum (via Wikipedia).
