Kidneys, since high school biology class and realized what they were for.  I have not tried some of the other "awful offals" but I'd probably try brains or sweetbreads if they were put before me, well prepared.  

I developed a taste for eel mainly at the sushi bars, before I knew what "unagi" meant.  Good stuff!  I bet it smokes well too.
