My name is Joyce, author of Eat What Tonight. Spending time in the kitchen has been one of my greatest therapeutic passion thus far even though I couldn't do it on a more often basis than I wish I could. I do not prized myself as a great cook or baker, after all I am a one-woman show in the kitchen and blogging scene. Nevertheless, I hope this little space of mine can aspire anyone like myself to appreciate and enjoy the best of oneself's efforts in every single home made dish.
Sister bought this back from Japan. If you are a cuttlefish lover, you will love this. It’s basically dried scallop covered with a slice of cuttlefish. The only thing I don’t like about this snack is that you have to be prepared to brush/floss your teeth after eating this coz very often, the very “chewy” scallop gets stuck in between the teeth which makes you very uncomfortable. If I am not wrong, this snack can be purchased in Singapore as well, places like Umeya and Hock Hua Tonic stock it. Yes, Hock Hua Tonic, I am surprised too. Probably because it’s dried scallop so considered it’s a dried seafood ? They sell for around S$1 for a piece. Not sure how much it costs to buy from Japan, but I guess it will definitely be cheaper if you were to buy this from those street stores because this snack originates from there anyway. It’s really either a “love it” or “hate it” situation with this snack because of the cuttlefish “fragrance” and taste. Just like some people can’t stand durians or smelly beancurd. I remember ever once that I brought cuttlefish into a movie theatre to munch upon and the ABC lady sitting beside could not take the smell and demanded me to stop eating. Well, what can I say ? One man’s meat is indeed another man’s poison. ^-^
