    Tink knows what I mean. In Mitsukoshi in the Japan pavilion they sell bags of tiny cooked whole crabs, shells an all. Well we bought a bag home with us and me and Steven sampled them today.

    They taste like lumps of sea.

    Yuk.
    I love that shop, I always buy jasmine incense sticks there. They'd gone up to $9.50 last year. Ouch.
    We had a look at the food but didn't buy any.

    Steven insists they are nice and has eaten several of them. I can't get past the sea taste.

    Still it's another "tried that" I can cross off my list.

    Well done for giving it a go. I'm not very brave when it comes to trying odd foods. I did try some unusual drinks at the F&W one year.

    Oooooh! I really like those little crabs!!! More fun that I've had in ages, especially offering them to people!

    But they do taste good.

    Yes, they are quite nice. No bigger than a thumbnail for the most part. They are crispy and a bit sweet, with a pronounced flavor of the sea.

    Definitely not for everyone, but a nice bit of Japanese style eating that doesn't involve rice and limp seaweed.

    That sounds interesting, but I will just watch others eat them.


    Reminds of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Love that show and love to see HIM eat things.
