Can you?

Kamirori, a Japanese restaurant along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City, serves uni (sea urchin) sashimi in cucumber cups with calamansi, a little plate of soy sauce and a dab of wasabi paste. Do you think you can eat it? I can't. This was my friend's order, not mine.

Maybe, I don't know I'd give it a try though.

Lois said...

It certainly is a pretty dish! I'm not sure if I could eat it, but like James said, I'd give it a try.

No, I don't not think I would be able to eat it. Unfortunately, it does not lool very appealing to me.

Frank said...

No, but thank you very much for offering. I think I'll pass. 9Just look at it!)

Please pass the burger and fries my way.

Sorry... I don't like Japanese food. I don't know why. Might be the taste not like Indonesian food, hahaha...

Kaori said...

I looks pretty but I could never put it in my mouth. Wasabi should be illegal :P

nobu said...

Looks delicious!!
In Japan, they usually use Nori instead of cucumber.

Don and Krise said...

Could make me believe it's going to taste like meatloaf and mashed potatoes? Maybe then. ;)

I might try this...

Olivier said...

Vogon Poet said...

Your image looks inviting, but I'm not sure, maybe a try at the nice cup!

Arnaud said...

Did you try it?

I'm not that that i'll order that but if my friend do it, i'll test his dish .

Tash said...

Looks very mooshy - mooshi-mooshi to the dish (he-he).
I'd eat the wasabi.

Hilda, here is the link to Trader Joe's. http://www.traderjoes.com/ It's a small, very good value grocery store chain.

Jilly said...

Oh it looks absolutely delicious. Sea urchins are very expensive in France with a wonderful flavour but I'm not sure they are worth the expense. I'd give this a try for sure.

Good question! It looks quite delicious but I'm not sure if I could eat it. The wasabi is great.

B Squared said...

I think you and I should grab a bite down the street.

JM said...

These look delicious!

Hilda, one of the CDP bloggers is missing! Please visit my page. Thank you.

Jarart said...

Looks lovely...don't think I would eat it, but it makes a great photo.

Halcyon said...

I can and I have!

It looks delicious.

Saretta said...

I lived in Japan for 2 and a half years and love sushi, sashimi, etc. but I never developed a taste for uni! Bleh...

Hyde DP said...

I'd probably pass too - it is the soy sauce and paste that puts me off.

Ursel said...

I'm not sure, I have to see the sea urchin without the sauce. If it's slimy I wouldn't, if it's tender, yes.

Hilda said...

Nobu, Olivier, Vogon Poet:
The cucumber cups were just used as containers. I don't think you're supposed to eat them! :)

Bergson said...

Give me a place ?

George said...

I've had sea urchin in China, but I don't think I would ever order it myself. The presentation of this dish is very good (I'm just not sure about the taste).
