* In the first mission for ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' expansion "War Of The Chosen" your soldiers pass a Chryssalid head on a spit over a fire, though the dialogue suggests it may have been done out of desperation.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Bosmer (Wood Elves)]] are bound to some unusual dietary restrictions due to the Green Pact, a deal they made with their patron deity to never harm the plant life in the forests of their homeland, Valenwood. Because they cannot harm the plant life in any way, they live on an almost strictly carnivorous diet (though it also includes honey, dairy, and mushrooms which do not count as plants), essentially [[InvertedTrope Inverting]] {{Veganopia}}. In order to get around these restrictions, they are also known to eat a variety of ''insects''. Thunderbugs in particular are used along with rotten meat to create the alcoholic beverage "[[GargleBlaster Rotmeth]]." Additionally, they are known to ''smoke'' insects in their bone pipes instead of the usual plant matter smoked by most races. These restrictions are significantly relaxed for Bosmer living outside of Valenwood.

* In a season 5 episode of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', Jack and Ashi stop at a vendor to get a bite to eat. Ashi is repulsed by the looks of the outlandish-looking food, but Jack is nonchalant about it and takes a bite out of what looks like shrimp. It turns his head into a fish (though he doesn't know about it), and Ashi declines having a bite, but the effect is temporary.

* In the first ''VideoGame/UltimaUnderworld'', you can make rotworm stew, a Goblin dish consisting of [[BigCreepyCrawlies rotworm flesh]], a hallucinogenic mushroom, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a bottle of port]]. Unexpectedly, it turns out to be very tasty.

* Creator/JeffFoxworth had a routine where he described Louisiana food as the best in the world "as long as you don't ask too many questions about what you're eating." He also claims to have seen his wife's relatives whack steaming pots with spoons and going "git back in there!"

** 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.
