There are only 3 foods I know I don't like: organ meats, papaya a third. Thanks to Chuck Nam for an awesome dinner at Sapporo-- a Japanese sushi bar-- and a new food to add to the list. On a plate filled with sashimi there was a roll with some very dark orange pink, almost salmon colored, roll that looked like it was an oyster. I put it in my mouth to have a burst of salty ocean-like oyster without the chew. Turns out it was sea urchin. Too much for me. Guess I wasn't meant to be an Asian-- and I can only say that because Chuck, who is Korean, said that. Guess I'll be content to be Dutch.

nora, don't worry...sea urchin is an aquired taste...some people like me have it...and some people like you just don't. It's ok
