Eat This: Raw bison organs from a roadside restaurant in northern Thailand

WATCH | We tried Laap Kwaai, which is a plate of raw bison offal.

Raw meat is not uncommon in Northern Thai fodder. But in at a roadside restaurant in Sankampaeng (outside of Chiang Mai), we found a particularly intense dish. Laap Kwaai is a pile of raw bison lung, intestine, liver and kidney served on a plate, cured in lime and spices. You can eat it with a fork, or by scooping it up with a ball of sticky rice in your hands.

Laap can also be called larb or laab. It is often considered a Laotian dish, but is common in Thailand as well, especially in the north where the two countries share a border. The type of meat in the dish varies, from duck to chicken to pork.

WATCH | At a lakeside in restaurant in Chiang Mai, Thailand, you can order a bowl full of live shrimp. Good luck eating all of them though -- the shrimp jump, or dance, out of the bowl they are served in.
