One of the best things about traveling is getting to try many new foods and explore cuisines of different countries. Every place in the world has its own amazing dishes and here are some we believe everyone should try—and are actually worth a visit to the country they originated from.

Japan: Fugu

Fugu is a controversial pufferfish that’s extremely poisonous unless prepared in the right way. If you have a chance to try it in a restaurant, don’t hesitate. Chefs who prepare fugu must undergo years of special training before they can get a license. They are then able to prepare the fish in many ways and turn it into a delicious, exclusive meal.

Cambodia: Fried Spider

You can try fried spider across Cambodia but it’s a specialty in the town of Skun in the Kampong Cham Province. There are many street vendors who sell deep-fried tarantula spiders in garlic oil that are actually a crunchy snack. Cambodians believe that eating fried spiders can increase your beauty.

Mexico: Escamoles

What looks like a grain salad at first is actually a dish made with ant larvae. It’s also called insect caviar and is considered a delicacy in Mexico. Escamoles date back to the Aztec time. They taste slightly nutty and can be found in dishes like tacos and omelets or served on their own.
