I SEE FOOD: SEA PENIS


There may be nothing I enjoy more than a trip to the Korean spa and a full course of Korean BBQ.  I'm a pretty adventurous eater.  Food normally doesn't scare me.  One Korean delicacy however, might require an extra bottle of soju to stomach: Gaebul (often translated to penis fish, sea penis or fat innkeeper worm in English).  A species of marine spoon worm, Urechis unicinctus, is often served raw in Korea with a side of salt and sesame oil.  In other parts of Asia sea penis is often stir-fried.
Next time I get hungry and horny at the same time, I'll know just what to order.
