Published

on

A particular famous YouTuber named Mark O’Dea is back at it again to search for the best Bazaar Ramadhan in Kuala Lumpur for this holy month of Ramadhan in the year 2021.

This time around, he is accompanied by his own friend named Tom. He decided to bring along his friend because as he stated in the video, Tom has never been to any Ramadhan Bazaar even though he has been living in Malaysia for a very long time. In this video, they were on their way to a Bazaar Ramadhan located in Chow Kit Road, Kampung Baru specifically in Kuala Lumpur.

According to their plan, they have agreed to buy food that they have never tasted before in their whole life. It would be such an eye-opening experience for them as Bazaar Ramadhan is very well-known to be selling so many foods and beverages that people could rarely see during other months except the Ramadhan month.

These are 5 of the delicious foods that they have bought from the Bazaar Ramadhan in Chow Kit Road:

1) Prawn Ball And Octopus Ball

(Video) Seven ‘Weirdest’ Fruits Of Seven Different Countries From All Over The World!

Published

on

With the ongoing pandemic, the chances for us to travel to other countries with unique botany and foods are low. Well, at least not until everything returns to its normal state. But worry not as we can always learn about the fruits from all around the world through the internet. Shared by Weird Explorer on YouTube, it shows us a list of the weirdest fruits from around the world.

From the Mexican Calabash with the strange texture ever to Stinking Toe, the fruit you probably have never heard of before, these are the weirdest fruits listed in the video.

1) Mexican Calabash

Compared to the Philippines Calabash, the Mexican fruit is smaller in size and filled with black flesh instead of white. It looks unappealing but the fruit itself tastes sweet like vanilla with a hint of licorice. The seeds, on the other hand, taste like corns when roasted. And they come heart-shaped! Even though the texture is not the best as it is similar to soggy leaves, the flavor of this fruit is quite good.

2) Cannonball Fruit

Similar to the previous fruit, both of these fruits are evolutionary anachronisms. This means the original way of dispersal has been lost to time. Cannonball fruits were dispersed by giant ground sloths but nowadays, wild boars are in charge. Living up to its name, the fruit is heavy, hard, and completely spherical. When cracked open, the flesh is white but it would oxidize quickly and then turns into a vibrant blue. The taste of this cannonball fruit is acidic and not suitable to be eaten just like that.

3) Monkeypod

Coming from South American, Monkeypod or also known as ‘camachile’ can also be found in India, the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia. It is in the shape of Q’s and the skin would split open when ripe. It looks interesting with the reddish color and the texture is fascinating too! With its small size, the monkeypod is very likely to be a snack.

4) Nutmeg

Picture: Google

Nutmeg is a popular Malaysian spice since the 16th century but not everyone is aware that nutmeg is a fruit too! The flesh of the fruit is the third spice after the seed and the aerial around the seed which is called ‘mace’. Of course, the flesh is too astringent to be eaten raw, just like how people would not recommend biting the seed itself. It ends up as another spice and is sometimes processed as candy or a snack.

5) Stinking Toe

Who would’ve thought that there is a fruit with this name? But this fruit really exists! It can be found in the Caribbean and in South America, most of the time used as a medicine. The fruit looks like a big toe and when it’s cracked open, it even smells like one! The flesh is powdery and the taste is similar to melon with a little herbal taste.

6) Ice Cream Bean

Picture: Google

The name of this ice cream is sure to fancy but they are actually big green bean pods with fluffy white flesh inside. They are called ice cream because of the flesh that resembles wet cotton balls. They are even creamy with a taste of vanilla! The seeds of this bean are edible and when roasted, it would make a great snack that tastes like chestnut. The Ice Cream Bean fruit is considered ‘weird’ but it surprisingly tastes good!

7) Tapia

Tapia trees produce a small fruit that works best as a travel snack! The taste of this fruit is immaculate. It is a great combination of apple and brown sugar. But besides that, this fruit is also a host of a native silkworm. The fruits are not weird in any way because it tastes good and looks like other small fruits but they are very rare and uniquely useful, so they deserve to be listed.
