How much sushi do you have to eat, in order to not be hungry again in 5 minutes?
I do, and this is one of the those little things i love about Japan.Quote:
The takoyaki place next door is also quite good, if you like it.
Obviously "Takoyaki maker" isn't a real prestigious position, yet the skill and pride some of them take in the craft of what amounts to fast food is truly impressive.
Watching them turn all those tako-balls like an airport flip-sign still blows my mind.
(Yes, i know, simple pleasures and all that...)
In Hawai'i an increasingly rare delicacy is the Opihi, or limpet.
Found stuck on rocks in the surf line,
not only are they rare, but difficult and dangerous to harvest.
The Hawai'ian "folk tune" Opihi Man even has the chorus dedicated to escaping the surf while picking the little buggers.
You generally get one chance to pry them off, (screwdriver on da rocks, brah)
because they lock down too tight once disturbed.
I'd call them a cross between a small abalone and an oyster.
They are crunchy and the guts do squirt out in your mouth,
so of course they are best raw.
Heh, we have limpets on the rocky beaches here too. I wonder if they're edible?
I've never been there, but I'll be sure to check it out next time we go. Thanks for the recommendation.Quote:

A while back, they had some AKB-type girl do a day of farming, where she was pulling up daikon. She got through a row and she was all like "I'm so tired" and the farmer walks up and is like: "good job. Now pull op the rest of them, please" as he pointed to the field.Quote:

They need to be > 1.25 in. diameter, and a few areas are forbidden but you may harvest them all year.Quote:

The problem is where they live.
You gotta be quick!
There are no commercial farms yet, but the research is being done.
We do have abalone farms!
Those certainly look, um interesting, writhing in the market.
(huge image warning...)
As it's a filter feeder you might exercise caution.
They might be a different species too.
