Durian

I watched a show on the travel channel last night called Bizarre Foods: Asia. This chef ate a variety of strange foods including chicken bones, little bats, turtle blood in sake, turtle legs, a sausage made of organ meat, coagulated blood, and rooster testicles. The only food that he spit out was durian (a relative of jackfruit, which was plentiful at Waroeng). He said that it smelled awful and the fruit tasted like rotten onions. He couldn't swallow it because it tasted so bad.
