    now that just sounds gross

  2. George

    Oh, I would try that. I went to the sushi bar for the first time a few months ago, and my wife was impressed (repulsed?) by the fact that I tried EVERYTHING from mussels to squid to octopus. :)

  3. Chris

    You’re my new hero, George (not that you weren’t before). :)
    John, you should take a tip from George! It grows on you! Or, at least, clings to the inner lining of your esophagus…

  6. SpilledInkGuy

    Be right back … gotta’ run to the lobby real quick! :)

  7. speearr

    Oh man that sounds delicious! What’s it called in Japanese so I can google it?

  8. Chris

    Now you guys are making me chuckle :)
    speearr, it’s a “takoyaki.”
    (Honestly, they are good.)

    Did somebody just say Dried Fish Shavings? Be still my aching tastebuds! Haha!

    Like George above, I went to a sushi bar in Glasgow for the first time, a couple of months ago. I was OK with the smaller bits of fish, in fact they were quite tasty, but as soon as I had a large bit of raw fish in my mouth I couldn’t stop thinking about what I was eating! Yeesh! I did really like the powerful mustard stuff they had but I can’t remember what it was called. It just about blew my brains out of my skull though! :)

  10. Whitey

    HA! I love it.

  11. speearr

    Takoyaki - got it!

  12. Chris

    Spencey: Yeah, now that I think about it, cats must live the high life in Japan. Fish products abound! I think acclimating to sushi for some folks requires a stepped process :D Oh, and I think you’re talking about wasabi. (”The cool heat,” as cans of wasabi peas say.)
    Whitey: Thanks! I thought you might dig this one :)
    speearr: Sometimes you can find them frozen in Asian groceries, fyi ;)

  13. M.Carroll

    I blame anime honestly, every time I see some new food there the next time I’m at the chinese grocer in town I look to see if they have it just so I can try it. I buy various types of fish balls in bulk and use them in various things and I love my firm tofu fried up with a bit of dried kelp and some soya with my breakfast.

  14. Chris

    You’re making me hungry!
    Welcome to the site, by the way :)

  15. CyberSkull

    Sounds good to me.

  16. alecho

    Hey! That is Takoyaki!!! Awesome!

  17. Crash

    Your takoyaki is very cute.

  18. Ethalina

    Takoyaki! Yummy! But yeah, when you describe it in words, it sounds kinda…. meh.

    [...] Intermission - A pen-drawn strip I did as a filler. I still like the gag, but I shouldn’t have tried to save time by drawing as small as I did. [...]

  21. Chris
