Bizarre Food of the Week: Amuse-Bouche

Spanish octopus, frisee, mustard, peanut oil, smoked paprika, pig face bacon in Los Angeles

Los Angeles

In this week's episode of Bizarre Foods America, Andrew Zimmern decides to open up a pop-up restaurant in Los Angeles. For one night, Andrew becomes the chef of his very own California Dreamin' restaurant at the now-closed Royal/T cafe. A fundraiser for a local food bank, the night consists of a 5-course Southern California-inspired menu with a few bizarre touches. The amuse-bouche featured here is composed of Spanish octopus, frisee, mustard, peanut oil, smoked paprika and pig-face bacon -- not your usual appetizer.
