  • Shark Week on Foodspotting

    "Live every week like it's Shark Week," said Tracy Morgan's character on 30 Rock. If there is a more inspiring quote, we don't know what it is, and it so happens that this week is Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. In the spirit of scary creatures and menacing beasts, the Foodspotting team put together an abbreviated list of some of our favorite ferocious-looking foods spotted around the world recently.


    Our co-founder Alexa and her husband Seth returned from lunch last week thrilled with their latest food discovery: lavender with fig mochi @ Ebisu Restaurant. Sounds innocent enough, right? When we saw it, our Android developer Bob remarked: It looks like the sarlacc monster from "Return of the Jedi."


    If you have a snake phobia like I do, look away! Seeing this 18-inch monster gave me the heebie jeebies. It was spotted by Ms Fatty at a county fair in California. She says she ate it all. (Gulp.)


    Some foods look so freaky, they make you worry and wonder "Are you sure it's dead?" Case in point: grilled whole branzino @ Inakaya New York. How can something so ugly taste so good?


    We're quite fond of the friendly earthworm, but we sure as hell don't want to see it at the dinner table. While we highly recommend trying delicious squid ink pasta at least once, be warned that you may want to avoid ordering it on a first date unless your dining companion digs ink-stained teeth.


    They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but it's harder to stay neutral about the way food looks on a plate. While we are big fans of all pig dishes – pork chops, porchetta, pork belly, bacon, you name it – we find this crispy close-up of whole roast pig just a bit disturbing.

    Now that you've seen our favorite frightening-looking foods, let us know if you spy any unusual dishes worth investigating, and be sure to check back again soon for Shark Week on Foodspotting Part 2!

      Amy, in Trinidad we eat a dish called "Shark & Bake" or "Bake & Shark" (the argument to the name is endless). It's a fried piece of shark meat that you combine with all sorts of yummy toppings. I get the cabbage and mango slaw with garlic sauce and cucumbers - it's a MUST HAVE when you visit the island, see here from my last trip:
