      Thanks for the post! I’m amazed you tried all of these foods. The pig’s brains and bull genitals look like they have the weirdest texture… you really are adventurous 🙂

    haha great things! I’m familiar with Pig Intestines and chicken feet but not the others! Not sure I’m up for it! And brain? Hm.. Have to think about that. Reminds me of Indiana Jones..
    Actually Pig Intestines and Cow intestines are common food here in Korea as well. 🙂
    Leslie, you are not going to try those… are you?? 😀

    I am for eating just about all parts of the bull except that one. The other four I would be open to try. Great article and pictures as one would expect coming from Ciki the great.

    Look, I’m working on becoming a better eater and trying new things but this may be pushing it just a little. I’m not quite that adventurous yet!

    It was interesting to read you post. I do love trying out differnt kinds of food but never tried something like this and not sure if I would ever try these myself. I always thought I was an adventurous eater but after reading your post I realized i stand no where when compared to you 🙂 Anyway do keep sharing your experiences !

    I’ve eaten testicles, and that was enough. I think I’ll be trying to stick with the better more, “approachable” food in Malaysia! And, passing these back to Mei! 🙂

      Wow, that qualifies you as an adventurous eater! If you do eat any strange foods during your stay in Malaysia, please blog about it. I’d love to see you smiling next to a simmering pot of brains 🙂

    And here I thought I was manly for eating the baby duck embryo inside the egg in Vietnam. That’s just frightening. How I missed that in Malaysia, I dont know. Maybe I just gorged myself on Indian food too much.

      We saw duck embryo on the menu in SE Asia but never tried it. I’m actually a vegetarian!

    Oh lord, I thought I had seen everything in China food-wise… Although, I admit, I tried chicken feet and pig intestine. I’ll probably skip the other ones, especially #4 and #5 don’t look exactly mouth-watering 😛

    Awesome post Mei!!!
    I had some wonderful flashbacks to some glorious bakuteh I enjoyed in Malaysia, spectacular, especially with the chili soy sauce provided!
    Next time I come to Malaysia, I’ll be sure to sample the bulls eye!

    I must say that you are really an adventurous eater.These are really weird kind of food & I really can not even think of putting them in mouth. I wonder how you managed to try them all. In fact i feel horrible looking at the photographs itself. Not my type at all;)

    Oh my god these are indeed the weirdest dishes from Malaysia which i have come across till now. Though it is not my cup of tea but it was good to know about the Chinese belief that “heaty” foods actually help the body heal faster and more efficiently after injury or surgery
