Although it's the people from Guangdong province who have the reputation for eating just about anything, Shanghai foodies are no slouches.

You can find plenty of weird eats around the city that you might actually enjoy if you know where to look.

For this list we stayed away from the shock value - no sheep penis here - and sought out what locals are actually eating.

    I've eaten ox tail and pigs feet/snout, so I'd have no objection to pig's tail, duck's head or snake. Cow's stomach lining and sea worms would depend entirely on how they were cooked. But there is no way at all I will ever eat bees or blood of any kind. None.

    Pig tails are for sale in most grocery stores in Alabama also. They are delicious roasted low and slow until the skin is crisp and the meat slides gently off the bones.

    I guess cow stomach lining would be close. Menudo, one of the best dishes on the planet in my opinion, contains beef tripe. Might have to go get me some o' dat soon.
