Traveling is as much about food as it is about seeing new places. Food is a big part of most cultures and you can’t call yourself a true traveler if you don’t try local food wherever you go. Here are 3 foods that we believe every traveler should try at least once.

Fugu: Japan

Fugu is a Japanese pufferfish with enough poison to kill 30 people, but it’s completely safe to eat when prepared by a skilled Japanese chef who goes through years of training before being able to serve fugu. The fish is in season from October to March.

Fried Spider: Cambodia

If you’re in Cambodia, don’t miss the chance to try a deep-fried spider. Cambodian cooks typically prepare tarantula and believe that it has the ability to increase the beauty of the person eating it.

Haggis: Scotland

Haggis is Scotland’s national dish. It’s made with sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs mixed with oatmeal, onion, spices, and stock. The dish originates from the 1400s and is often served with some Scotch whiskey.
