DISGUSTING FOOD  --Korean Sannakji

 

Description

Picture

 

Sannakji is the name of a South Korean dish which consists of live nakjiOctopus (Octopus) minor minor, a small octopus — that has been cut into small pieces and served immediately, usually lightly seasoned with sesame and sesame oil. The octopus fragments are usually still squirming in the consumer's plate. It can also be served whole.

Special care ought to be taken when consuming sannakji. Because the tentacles' suction is still active, it can stick to consumers' mouths and throats. This can present a choking hazard for some people, particularly if they are intoxicated.

 

 

For the ultimate in fresh ingredients, try the Korean sannakji, a delicacy that fights back. Chefs slice off a tentacle of a small live octopus and bring it to the table. The tentacle goes down squirming, which is considered the highlight of the experience—along with the slight vacuum action of its suction cups.
