(AN EXCERPT FROM OUR CHAT SESSION)
Chris: SOOOOO…. Drunken Shrimp… do you know this?
Chris: Zhui Xia (Drunken Lobster) Xiao Xia is lil lobster or Shrimp. I ate it yesterday
Chris: they bring a cold bowl of liquor with 10 live shrimp in it to the table.
Chris: then they squirm for a bit. They get drunk and “drown”. When they look like they are not squirming you eat the whole thing
yes….(cough)…. yes… the whole thing… live….
Chris: let’s just say the first one I ate I CUT first then ate just the tail. He continued to squirm on my plate.
the 2nd one I ate I took the whole guy, put him almost all in my mouth, sucked out the meat in the tail and spit him back on the plate.
B: was it good?
Chris: I do not think he was happy bc he continued to crawl around in my rice and vegetables for the rest of the meal.
Good? Not so much. As in it was ok, but I am not craving it. It was cold, live (not raw) live and wet. And a lil creepy when you continue the meal with 2 half shrimps crawling around while you are trying to eat. Now I can answer what is the weirdest thing I have eaten so far in SH
