* Inverted in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}''. Andalites don't have tongues, so when they morph into humans they risk becoming addicted to delicious human food. They also think motor oil and cigarette butts are delicious.

* ''[[TMNT1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'', original cartoon: In a scene that establishes her as probably not an actual New Yorker, April O'Neil considers the pizza offered by the turtles -- which includes toppings such as whipped cream, ice cream/pepperoni, and peanut butter/anchovies -- marginally more palatable than...sushi.

* This indirectly gives ''WebComic/BlueMilkSpecial'' its name: while blue milk comes from female banthas, blue milk special comes from ''male'' banthas. [[{{Squick}} Do the math.]] Han and Chewie look horrified when they find out, as Han's been drinking special.

*At the beginning of the Tipaan Cloud Horn party in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', Ringo and George are planning to visit the buffet—until Quill comes by displaying the lovely delicacy of pizza with whole songbirds and air worms. The two Earthmen turn away gagging and thoroughly lose their appetites. Especially ironic given that the four had accidentally introduced pizza to the world in the first place.

** Elves go one step farther and practice cannibalism.
* The Bosmer, or Wood Elves, of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' have a peculiar diet as a result of the Green Pact. As they cannot eat any form of plantlife, they've become quite skilled at cooking any form of meat, including one another as cannibalism is a key facet of their society. Perhaps their most bizarre food is an alcohol made by fermenting rotten meat.

cannibalism, when they're not stuffing their effeminate faces full of their slain foes be they goblin or dwarf.

Perhaps their most bizarre food is an alcohol made by fermenting rotten meat. It's been said in the lore that they fast before large battles so they can be hungry enough to eat their dead and dying, foes or not.
