If you enjoy a good gross-out, you should line up for The Disgusting Food Museum (, a new pop culture pop-up residing in the A+D Architecture and Design Museum (900 E. 4th St., L.A.) through Feb. 17. It is the brainchild of Dr. Samuel West, the man behind The Museum of Failure that was a big hit in early 2018.

The 80 items that make up this international collection of crazy food include pungent bean curd (aka stinky tofu), escargot (French snails) and a Jell-O salad with olives, mayonnaise and sausage. Not too revolting? These are the only examples tame enough to mention here. The museum is open from 2-8 p.m. Wed.-Fri., noon-7 p.m. Sat.-Sun. and admission is $15 weekdays, $18 weekends for ages 13 and up, $10 for ages 12 and younger. You have been warned.
