Snails » "This falls more into the disgusting category than scary or strange, but when I was young, my parents knew I loved eating ‘Chinese style snails,’ often cooked in a black bean/garlic sauce," said SuAn Chow, owner of the ChowTruck. To eat them, "you suck the snail out" of its shell. "We were in Chinatown — San Francisco and they decided to buy a bag to bring home. It traveled all the way back to Salt Lake in the car. I remember that it smelled terrible when being cooked. But far worse was when I sucked one out and chomped into it — it had many little shells...ughh pregnant snails."
