Would You Eat This? WARNING: Not For The Squeamish (or people who like animals)

Via Huffington Post

Warning: If you have a weak stomach, or are a huge fan of Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants, you may want to think twice before watching this video or reading further.

Odori-don, or literally a “dancing squid rice bowl,” is a Japanse dish where a live squid is decapitated and served on top of a bowl of sushi rice along with thinly sliced pieces of its severed head.

Seasoned soy sauce is then poured over the squid to make it “dance” (or flail, depending on how you want to look at it.)

According to Food Japan, after the show, the squid is then removed from the bowl and prepared by the chef.

If you’re intrigued and strong-stomached, the restaurant Ikkatei Tabiji in Hokkaido, Japan’s northern island, was the first to offer it, and it will run you about $24. What do you think, would you give it a try?

  1. That was so cool! No way I’d ever eat it, but it was fun to watch. I wonder what it is about the soy sauce that makes it move …

    (p.s. add an ‘e’ to ‘hug’ fan …)
