Tuna Eye for the Gaijin Guy


This just screams “EAT ME!”

“I was at the grocery store and I got the urge to eat something new. I looked around and I didn’t really see much until I found a food that could look back. It was only a hundred yen, which is less than a buck, so I figured I’d give it a whirl. It had a sticker on it that said that it should be cooked, but I didn’t really know how to cook it. I tried to find stuff online, but there aren’t a lot of English webpages devoted to eating fish eyes, so I just decided to boil it.”

Tineye helped track the source of that image of culinary goodness. Jesse hunts for awesome things to eat, eats them and describes the experience.

Update 3 May 2010: This just in from Planet Ross – a matching set!

Now we can watch Avatar in 3D through fish eye lenses! Yay!

    Oh! My! Goodness! That is just gross. Yuk! Seriously, do people really eat that?!!


  2. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Leeuna– When they were younger, Mrs. Strutt’s father and his brothers would fight over who got the eyes after they’d slaughtered a hog. Eyeballs are a delicacy.


  3. Noelle Says:

    Oh, please tell me you did NOT eat that. Eeeeeeeeee!


  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Noelle– Nope, but someone named Jesse did — click the link. For me, I’m a culinary coward. For example, cow tongue is supposed to be pretty good, but I don’t like the idea of tasting something that’s tasting me back.
