I eat conch and I eat escargot, so I've been trying to wrap my mind around whether or not I could eat the giant sea whelk (think snail) that is the subject of this Travel Channel video and is the norm in Phuket, Thailand. Maybe if I didn't know what it was. (I said maybe.) How about you? Are you adventurous with your food?
Here's an interesting Thai cultural food fact: After a meal is over, there is no such thing as dispensing with leftovers. Throwing food away enrages the Thai Goddess of Rice Mae Po-Sop, a female deity who watches over the people, ensuring everyone has enough to eat. Many Thai believe that bad luck or even widespread famine may then ensue.
