Today's Acquired Taste





Ika Tokkuri (shown above) are handmade sake bottles made out of dried squid skin. When warm sake is poured into the containers, the taste of squid infuses the liquid, giving it a smooth, mild taste.

Sounds fishy to me. More here.

Well, I have no idea what sake tastes like, as I abide by most laws, so I can't really say "Eww" or "Sounds Delicious". But it's awesome how many uses they got out of squid skin. :) The craftsmanship is great!

Sounds yummy-rific. It also seems like a good way to use the entire squid and not waste any.
