6 Ambergris

Ambergris was one of the most royal and rare foods in ancient China. They believed it to be the saliva of the dragons. However, it is excreted by whales when fat and bile forms in the stomachs of whales and it becomes hard after floating on the sea. It was said to be extremely tasty and the Chinese used it in special occasions.

Nowadays, Ambergris is rare due to decline in the whale population and it is even illegal in America.
