Dancing squid diet

If you've been trying to lose weight, I suggest the squid odori-don?

Literally "dancing squid rice bowl". A live squid with its head removed is served on top of a bowl of sushi rice, accompanied by sashimi prepared from the head (usually sliced ika (squid) and ika-kimo (squid liver)) as well as other seafood.

Seasoned soy sauce is first poured on top of the squid to make it "dance."

  1. If I find a restaurant that serves that hear in New York, and eat it--what do I win?

  2. This was horrifying. It will haunt me all the rest of my days.

  3. I just finished the Hunger Games series.

    So. Awesome!

    Thanks for the recommendation. I probably would not have otherwise picked them up.

  4. I was just about to have lunch. bad idea
