Seriously, can anyone stomach this? This is sooooo wrong. I've no qualms about eating squid but to watch my lunch doing a jig on my rice? Ughhhhhhh!! I'm freaking out just looking at this.
On googling, I learned that this is a controversial delicacy called Odori-don that literally translates as 'dancing squid' served in a restaurant in Hokkaido. Apparently, the squid is dead but the sodium in the soy causes neurons to fire, making the muscles twitch, creating the illusion of a resurrected squid.
