My friend Sarah works at a new Japanese plastics/high tech chem plant under construction in the Valley and was provided this Japanese-style chex mix at work today.
She and E were lunching at the Tricky Fish and so we opened up the bag. Sarah really wanted culinary student and all-around coolster E and me, you humble (cough, cough, heh) food-blogger pal to try it.
I think Sarah was disappointed there was only one fish in the bag.
I also think E was relieved to see that and to see my hand swoop in after taking the picture to grab said dried-fish 'snack' and pop it in my mouth.
Yes, I ate the fish. It was, in fact, not tasty.
Chalk one up to cultural relativism and move on to your next meal.
