Mach vs. Food - The Live Squid!
I'm a bit of a sucker for eating weird food. If it's weird, and somewhere in the world people eat it, I'm probably going to want to try it. So when we watched an episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, in which he goes to Korea and eats a live squid at a fish market, I immediately said "We HAVE to do that when we're in Seoul later this year!" And that's how, on a frosty winter morning in January, we ended up at the Noriyangjin Fish Market in Seoul Korea, picking a squid out of a bucket, and watching the thing squirm around in its death throes prior to entering the cavernous abyss known as our mouths. Watch the vids, and be grossed out. Cause it was actually kind of gross. Seriously. The tentacles squirm and sucker to everything (the serving tray, your chopsticks, the top of your mouth) for long after they've been chopped up.
