* Some chapters of ''Manga/GoldenKamuy'' focus on Asirpa teaching Sugimoto about Ainu culture, including food. Some of them, like squirrel meatball soup, Sugimoto finds tasty. The others, like raw squirrel brain or hare eyeball, not so much.

** ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad'': the unusual (but delicious) cuisine of Genua is born of desperate ingenuity: "No one would eat shark's fin soup if they were allowed to eat the rest of the shark." This gets thrown out the window by The Last Continent when Rincewind notes that shark meat tastes like boots that have been pissed on.

The planet Earth is a very diverse place, with many different cultures, each of which has its own traditions, history, worldview, [[HollywoodCuisine and menu]]. For the hapless traveler, encountering a new and very different food can be an unsettling experience of the {{Squick}}-tastic [[NauseaFuel variety]]. This is very much TruthInTelevision, and often finds its way into fiction as well, where it is usually played for laughs. Plus, it's an easy challenge for a RealityShow to pull off. (For example, pictured here is ''huitlacoche'', corn grains infected with corn smut, a true Mexican delicacy!)

For the outer space version, see AlienLunch. Foods like this may [[ItTastesLikeFeet taste like feet]]. Contrast with IAteWhat, when a person ingests something that's not food in ''any'' culture. Note that most Foreign Queasine is automatically StockYuck material. May appear as a MasochistsMeal. Occasionally combined with DinnerOrderFlub. If an animal which the diner's culture considers too gross to eat is consumed out of sheer desperation, rather than because it's acceptable fare among foreigners, that's ReducedToRatburgers.

For the non-culinary equivalent, see AmericansHateTingle. See also HaggisIsHorrible, a SubTrope.

* In LarryNiven's novel, ''Literature/{{Ringworld}}'', the ring's natives watch in undisguised horror as Luis Wu chows down on "a properly aged steak and a selection of cheeses." One of them mutters about not realizing that Wu's species (that is, humans from earth) were "carrion eaters." They then request ''fresh'' food, thanks.

* ''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.
