** According to Javik, [[{{Precursor}} Prothean]] cuisine contained, among other ingredients, [[ToServeMan salarian, asari, quarian, krogan, and turian]] (a pretty neat trick, considering the biochemistries involved...). He ''was'' pretty drunk, though, and one of the few pleasures in his post-[[HumanPopsicle Alien Popsicle]] life is making up outlandish stories about "his cycle" and [[{{Troll}} seeing what the "ignorant primitives" will believe]]. That being said, he did mention in passing while he was sober that salarian livers were a delicacy.

* ''Anime/ShowByRock'': The Sassasassa farragusa (from Moa's home planet) is a giant alien monster with pointy claws, a desire to kill all melodisians, and purple, rotting meat, but apparently it tastes like candied shrimp.

* ''VideoGame/Subnautica'': You're stranded on a hostile alien planet, so most of your food is purely alien (exceptions include Chinese Potatoes and rations, brought by previous expeditions). Most of it tastes good and the endangered fruits are particularly amazing, but if you overeat anything your body suddenly bleeds seriously (large damage to hunger and thirst, though no health damage) from all the toxins that humans are unaccustomed to, even if the amount you ate is relatively small.

Fish in particular have exceptionally large eyes, and some of them EXPLODE.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', poor George and Ringo get thoroughly grossed out by one of the specialty pizzas served at the Cloud Horn party on Tipaan—it's covered with air worms (large translucent worms) curled around whole margs (songbirds, including beaks and claws).

* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', it is not unusual for dwarves to butcher and cook anything they can sink their weapons/tools/[[NoodleImplements upper left premolar]] into, up to and including [[EldritchAbomination Forgotten Beasts and Titans]] with poisonous blood or deadly dust. If it has flesh and lacks the SAPIENT tags, it's on the menu.

* Years of spellcasting has changed Doctor Strange's internal anatomy so much he can only eat dishes with a lot of tentacles and eyes that may not be native to Earth's plane of existence.

* Creator/GeorgeCarlin, in his "Fussy Eater" routine from ''A Place for My Stuff!'': "'Course, some guys'll eat anything, I know that. Saw those guys in the Service--'Whaddaya got to eat? Never mind! Just gimme some!' 'It's rat's asshole, Don!' 'Well, it sure makes a hell of a fondue!'"

* In Somtow Sucharitkul's ''Mallworld'', an alien ambassador brings a live animal (considered a delicacy on his planet) to a diplomatic dinner with the humans. The animal looks like a vaguely humanoid rhinoceros beetle and is about the size of a howler monkey. The humans are appalled... APPALLED, I tell you... to find out that the "animal" is actually a child-stage member of the ambassador's own species. (Turns out the aliens aren't sentient until adulthood, breed '''very''' quickly and in copious numbers, and generally consider their own children vermin; any that manage to survive to adulthood are taught how to be civilized beings, but until they they are hunted and eaten by their own parents.
