WEIRDEST FOODS I CAN'T STOP EATING

Or at least that I can't stop eating on the rare instance that they're in front of me. That make sense? I'm a vegetarian, so this won't get particularly weird. Here we go nonetheless. @olive, I thank thee.
  1. Huitlacoche
    Corn smut, a rich mushy fungus thing. Great in a quesadilla.
  2. Salty turnip and egg
    This is a comforting omelet-esque dish at Ruen Pair in Thai Town. It is both simple and magical.
  3. Beet and sumac soda
    A choice refreshmer from the Madcapra genius jammers.
  4. Jackfruit
    Wonderful meat substitute. Dense and exotic and ideally made spicy.
  5. Any (savory) crispy rice dish.
    What's a lover of crispy rice to do if he doesn't get off on the sickly sweet situation that is the Rice Krispy Treat? Savory situations ahoy! (see SQIRL, Night + Market Song).
  6. Singani 63
    From the website: SINGANI 63 IS THE CULMINATION OF A 51-YEAR, PRIVATELY FUNDED PROJECT KNOWN AS THE STEVEN SODERBERGH ADVENTURE, THE PURPOSE OF WHICH IS TO IDENTIFY THE EXCEPTIONAL IN ALL AREAS OF HUMAN ENDEAVOR. A CLEAR, MIXABLE SPIRIT DISTILLED FROM THE AROMATIC WHITE MUSCAT OF ALEXANDRIA GRAPE AT HEIGHTS NEARING 6000FT (WHICH IS REALLY F#&*ING HIGH, DUDE), SINGANI 63 WAS CREATED IN THE YEAR 1246+284 (AROUND 1530), AND IS KNOWN AS THE NATIONAL DRINK OF BOLIVIA.
  7. Nopales
    I resisted cactus for many years. Cuz ah it's slimy. But once I started digging on okra, I discovered the joy of nopales. A great pleasure in life is eggs scrambled with nopales. Preferably placed in a homemade tortilla. You can get said scramble at Loteria.
  8. Absinthe panna cotta with gooseberry coulis
    Had this at the rehearsal wedding over the weekend in Vermont. Fucking A.
  9. Sweet potato leaves
    I devoured a mound of these gently sautéed jammers from Pine & Crane the other day. Turned my shit green. I'd do it again. I don't give a fuck.
  10. Charcoal Lemonade
    From Juice Served Here. Hi @loganpuss. I also brush with an activated charcoal toothbrush. Detoxilicious!
  11. Burnt carrots
    First jammed upon at Manfred & Vin in Copenhagen. Then devoured at Commissary. Seems like a bad move, and then it very much ain't.
