* ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'' features an extraordinarily rare instance of [[BigEater Shaggy and Scooby]] actually running ''away'' from food, namely the traditional Irish dish of crubeens and farl, while a SuperPersistentPredator of a chef keeps hounding them at every turn, trying to get them to eat it ([[ShoutOut while speaking in the same rhyming scheme as]] ''Literature/GreenEggsAndHam'', to boot). In an aversion of [[IDoNotLikeGreenEggsAndHam the usual trope]], when they finally do try it, they find it just as disgusting as they expected.

** Indy, Willie and Short Round dine with their Indian hosts and are grossed out to find that ''every item on the menu'' is like this. Live eels, served inside a dead python. Eyeball soup. Steamed beetles. And for dessert, chilled monkey brains. Served ''en suite'' in chilled monkey ''heads.'' HilarityEnsues. This helped get the movie banned in India for spreading racist stereotypes.

* In ''Film/DemolitionMan'' the main character John Spartan is forced, along with his companions, to take a trip into the city's sewers where rebels live. To try to dispel some of the suspicions that the sewers' inhabitants are directing at them, he orders a hamburger (and pays for it with someone else's Rolex). Halfway through eating it, he is reminded by one of his companions that there are no cows underground. He asks the vendor where the meat comes from, and is told it's rat meat. He pauses for a moment, then cheerfully resumes eating, stating it's the best burger he's had in years.
