To quote the most intelligent thing my brother's ever said, we all love eating dead animals. What types of meat have you not tried yet, but would like to if you could find a source/had the money?
My list: Goat, horse (though I've heard it's not that good) venison, kangaroo, and ostrich
In my experience, many game meats don't taste like much or much different, as they tend to be lean. I have had venison, squirrel, alligator, turtle, ostrich, rabbit, caribou, elk, pigeon, quail, and boar, off the top of my head. Of these my favorites are probably venison and rabbit. None of them have a lot of fat (if you just eat the typical muscle cuts) so aren't necessarily particularly tasty.
Rather than branch out into ever-weirder types of game meat, I would like to move myself closer to the process, by killing and processing my own meat. I have never been hunting, but would like to do it and learn how to clean and process my own kills. I would also like to take part in a pig butchering. If anyone is doing one and needs a hand... :-)
Hmmmm, my people are French and they fed me all bits and organs from a lot of different animals - also my husband hunts and he bring home all sorts of critters that we eat.
But, now that I am within a day's drive of the Pacific Northwest Coast - I want to try geoduck.
You guys really need to go with me (or my sister Mei Ling, bless her where is she now) the next time I go to China. You could definitely have your wish fulfilled there. There's a restaurant down the street where I stay in Beijing that specializes in Donkey meat. When I go to Inner-Mongolia, I always drink the fermented horse milk (it's alcoholic). I won't eat dogs, cats or horses (or donkeys). They are my friends.
Shellfish, and more non-shelled fish. Growing up, I never really had much (any?) of either- dad was allergic to shellfish, and we were in the midwest anyway, so we just never ate much of it. I'd love to get a taste of just about everything. (although I'll probably never figure out- who looked at a lobster and said "ok, let's try that!"?)
Ostrich, kanagroo, snake, buffalo (had the ground meat, never a proper cut), rabbit, and more organ meats, for the rest of my list. :)
