Food plays a large role in every culture. One place in the United States will have common meals that are viewed as strange by those from another part of the country. Crawfish might be common in Louisiana while lobster is favored in Maine. Warm dishes are served more often in the colder states like Minnesota while fresh fruit can be served year-round in California or Florida. It all depends on the food culture of that state.

Some adventurous people like to try unique dishes from all around the world while others prefer to stick to things that they know and trust. Everyone has taste buds that enjoy certain types of food more than others. The ability to be an adventurous eater comes from a mixture of one’s environment and genetic makeup, according to Huffington Post.
Yet experimenting outside of one’s food culture can be fun, even if one does not like the new tastes. It opens up new experiences and knowledge. According to A Healthier Michigan, a person must taste a new food 20 to 30 times before becoming used to it. Thus, many people might want to give up before actually adapting to a dish. That does not mean they should abandon hope of ever liking that food or another unique recipe.
This list is for both the adventurous foodies and the picky eaters who want to branch out and try more variety. Here are some unbelievable dishes that people all over the world enjoy. Perhaps you might too if you give them a chance.
