dancing squid

I Pose a Question

Warning: If you are easily squeamish, please don’t read any further!

I consider myself an extreme foodie. I will try most anything…

My Mom-in-Law sent me this in an e-mail this week and I can’t seem to get the disturbing image out of my mind

So my question for all you extreme foodies is this…

Would you try this dish?

This dish is called “Odori-don” and means “dancing rice bowl”.

Apparently the soy sauce sodium activates the neurons in this already dead squid causing it to appear to “dance”.  The squid is then taken off the plate and prepared by the chef at the restaurant Ikkatei Tabiji in Hokkaido, and Japan’s northern island, was the first to offer it, and also try to patent the name. Other restaurants are copying it as it’s become such a fad.

So, I ask you again, would you be daring enough to try it?

    We have often commented that if we were ever on Amazing Race or Survivor that I would be the one NOT to eat the weird and disgusting stuff. So, the answer is "No way!" :)

    No. No ma'am. Not even with basil or alfredo sauce. No.

      Marie at the Lazy W - So I gather you'd eat just about anything else with those 2 ingredients? LOL

    I would! Squid and salt go together. Lest we forget our food was once a living creature.

    Oh no I wouldn't. I think even if I had nothing else to eat I still wouldn't.
