Dancing Squid - Could You Eat This!??

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.

Bon app├ętit!

Oh no, I will definitely not be watching this video! I saw something very similar but with frog legs on Youtube! Yuuuuuuck! someone had some skinned frog legs on a plate and sprinkled salt on them and they started dancing. I was so grossed out! AGH!

Oh My Goodness... I'm not sure I could eat that... and you know how I love to eat. Anything but that! I'd even eat durian! If it didn't move it might be easier to eat...

Oh my, I just got the worst case of chills down my spine...how odd that the soy sauce could cause a reaction like that... weird.

Eww! I lived in Hokkaido when we were stationed there back when I was in 2nd and 3rd grade...I'm glad that I don't remember seeing anything like that! haha I've got chills thinking about moving food on a plate! (Not too keen on squid, except maybe some dried squid.)

Blessings & Aloha!
catching up on some fun blog reading :o)

Nope. I can't even eat food that looks like it was alive once! This is just creepy!

Michelle said...

I do not want to talk bad about what other people might consider normal. So, I feel bad saying this. But, it kind of creeps me out. I can't eat most of that stuff anyway because I don't like the chewiness of most of those types of food. Never been a fan of Calamari or conch or any of those.

Um. Ya lost me at "dancing"...which meant, moving... I don't eat stuff that is still moving :)
