Baby Octopus...fourth!

Warning: A plateful of octopi (octopuses, octopodes) MAY have been harmed in the making of this blog entry.

Fourth never-done-before-thing accomplished! Cp, CK and I went for sushi at Excapade while they were having an HSBC promo.

Should've picked Mastercard instead of Visa

As usual, our regular dish...the Dragon Roll. Nothing very dragony about it, though only the Japanese can come up with a dish that combines eel, prawn roe, apple, asparagus and avocado all rolled in egg- and make it taste great!
Very yummy!
Next, for my first time ever, baby octopus! CP had previously described it as "put in in your mouth and when you bite through the head, the juice comes out...". Sounds more like a giant munching on babies!

Plate of baby octopus

It was soooooo yummy...didnt have weird juices popping out of the head, but very, very nice!

No fair, my octopus only had 5 luscious, crunchy legs!

I cant remember the name of this one...sushi roll with eel inside, I think. And raw salmon outside the rice, topped with seaweed. Yummy but not as nice as the Dragon Roll.


Sushi getting undressed :P~

While we were waiting for the rest of the dishes, we watched...

...the chef slicing through heaps of salmon...

...the sushi train...

...passing...

...by.

And the joblessness began! There was one octopus left on the dish.

The last baby.

So CP started to adjust the sesame seeds on the little chap.

Extreme makeover in progress.

And created 2 eyes, a nose and a fake smiley mouth! Of course the smile is artificial, I wouldnt be able to smile if I was about to be dipped in soy sauce and swallowed whole!

Tada!

Extreme makeover not enough! Next comes America's Next Top Model Octopus!

Superjobless or not?

Then CK picked him up...

Literally by the scruff of his neck

Dipped him in wasabi+soy sauce

Slosh-slosh-slosh

Heh heh heh! *evil laugh*


And ate him!

end of baby octopus! ^_^

To keep the baby octopus in our tummies company, we munched on another supernice dish.

Salmon Asparagus!

And the sometimes-very-nice, sometimes-overcooked, grilled cuttlefish!

Delicious!

And finally, our soup. CK found it tasteless, but CP and I found it sweet and quite tasty.

Mmm..soup!

And it was kept warm and boiling by a tiny blue flame. Considering the soup was held in paper, it's amazing it (the paper!) didnt burn. CP (resident physics teacher) explained that the metal basket was conducting heat away...or something.

Still, paper won't burn meh?

Fishballs, chicken balls, veggies, etc :)

So much for dieting, this post has made me incredibly hungry! Tata!
