How much sushi do you have to eat, in order to not be hungry again in 5 minutes?

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?

He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.

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.
