Tried tapenade yet?

Not yet, but I'm after something more exotic/unusual/different. I've had similar variations, but it seems like an excellent meal idea, rather than a new culinary experience.

I might plump for lobster or ostrich, but the latter would go against my red meat amnesty! I think a sea food direction is in order.

Since the sad demise of Oriental City, I still have my local branch of Wing Yip to fall back on. If any of the branches listed here are within reach of where you are, you'll have plenty of exotic food to try for months to come.

Or go to Chinatown in New York - some of the shops have buckets outside full of nameless denizens of the deep squirming away and often trying to escape across the pavement.

Don't watch the film 'Old Boy', then. Or the 'Outer Boroughs' episode of 'No Reservations'. Trust me on this.

It made my mate sick for days. Either that or the 3 days of boozing.

Regarding Old Boy. I once shared a few bottles of soju with the main dude.

Assah.

AWESOME!

My one pot wonders are pretty damn good. I could only find recipes for variations of fried frogs legs. So I bunged them in a dish together with some veg stock, many various spices and seasonings, button mushrooms, roast tomatoes and popped it in the oven for 20 minutes. Bish bash bosh. Badabing badaboom. Nice.

Oh and they taste like chickeny cod, or coddy chicken. Nice, but hardly spectacular.

That is what I expected from views on here and elsewhere, but I wasn't disappointed. I've saved one pair for my lunch tomorrow!

Phew, at least I can let it be 'til September now.

I had a starter of baby squid in a garlic and squid ink sauce recently on a trip to Valencia, they were most defintely dead, but absolutely delicious. They were served on a next of crispy shredded potatoes. Possibly the weirdest looking fish and chips I have encountered.

I've been to Pusan. I wasn't offered live octopus, but I was offered live prawns, as part of a huge raw fish dinner. The fish was served on a block of ice. The prawns were brought it later in the meal, and I could see that they were raw, I then noticed that they were still moving :(

It was all served with the usual Korean accompaniments - raw garlic, hot sauce and the mandatory kimchi.

My favourite Korean meal is the meat barbecued at the table - is it bulgagi? Whatever - I've been to S. Korea twice and had it several times on both occasions.

Beef Bulgogi recipe - pretty simple, but tasty.

I'm not a fan of seafood generally. I have eaten squid (fresh, but definitely dead) but to me, it was like a mouthful of salty elastic bands. :(

When not cooked correctly that's what you get, but these baby squid were melt in the mouth and the garlic/ink sauce was delicious.

With squid and octopus, you either cook them really fast or really slow. Anything in between and you get the rubber effect.

I'm not keen on crustaceans, in fact I avoid them if I can. I like mussels (moules & frites - delish)

And I enjoy spaghetti vongole (clams) I've eaten squid but I agree about the rubbery texture. I once had whelks in a spicey gravy in Ostende off a stall on the prom (a bit like those at Scarboro) - I had to throw them away.
