#Locusts and mealworms at Le Festin Nu, Paris

Consumed for decades in Africa and Asia, these critters are prized for their nutritional values, being especially high in protein and low in fat. The crispy shell is said to taste like a little piece of salty croissant that's been grilled, and the flavours that emerge from them are similar to those of a peanut.

Wurstküche offers a classic sausage such as a traditional Polish-style kielbasa, while the brave may want to try what looks like a perfectly normal hot dog but is actually made with rabbit and rattlesnake.

#Blood sausage 'sundae' at Dongwonjip, Seoul

4.jpg

A 'sundae' at Dongwonjip, is a somewhat misleading name given it doesn't feature anything creamy and sweet with strawberries. Instead the lumpy treat is actually blood sausage stuffed with noodles. Meanwhile, the sundaeguk (sundae stew), a simple dish made with pig's head and small intestines is described a good hangover cure by Time Out.

#Raindrop cake at Smogasborg, New York

5.jpg


In New York, the latest social media food trend is the Japanese dessert known as mizu shingen mochi which looks exactly like a giant drop of water. The sweet treat is made with water just solidified with agar (a vegetable gelatine) and served over brown sugar syrup and kinako (roasted soy flour). The orb-like cakes can be sliced like any soft jelly but will melt if left out for too long.

#Tapioca marshmallows, Chicama, London

Unlike the usual bonfire treat, Chicama's 'tapioca marshmallows' are chewy pieces of cooked-down tapioca - a starch made from the root of the cassava plant.The result looks like marshmallows but the Parmesan adds a crispy cheesiness.

#Go fishing at Zauo, Tokyo

7.jpg

At Zauo, a restaurant chain in Tokyo, you can catch your own dinner - just don't arrive hungry. Diners are greeted by a giant, boat-shaped seating area surrounded by a moat teeming with all kinds of fish. Once quests are seated, they're handed a fishing rod and some bait, and are free to 'go fishing'. Visitors are unable to throw the fish back though - once caught it must be eaten - and the only seasonings are salt and lemon, to ensure that the fish's natural flavour is always prominent.
