That is a good question. I'm not a very adventurous food person, so I don't have any that I eat that is unusual. At least I don't think so :) I do like prickly pear, but I've never had cactus soup!

That sounds like an interesting dish! Something I love that none of my friends have heard of is Falooda. It's a cold drink made of milk and rose water or rose syrup, and it has sweet basil seeds and sweet noodles in it as well. My family likes to top it with vanilla or strawberry ice cream--it's really refreshing and delicious!

This reminds me of Syllabub or Mehalabiya which is like a rose custard with nuts on top. So good!

I love Mehalabiya/Malabi and I also got reminded of it when I read about Falooda. I’m going to research Falooda right now!
