We interrupt your regularly scheduled SITE INACTIVITY for a..*gasp* BLOG ENTRY!
I got a call from the bestfriend a few of weeks ago. He and his girlfriend were on their way home home from their long-weekend trip at Lian, Batangas. He yelled “SEA URCHINS” for a good 30 seconds before asking me to meet them at his place for a midnight snack. He had acquired half a cooler of sea urchins that were STILL ALIVE and wanted me to document the process of gutting and eating it. How could I say no to that?
At first, all we did was agitate, harass and provoke them via massive poking just to make them move for our pleasure and entertainment. Then moved on to uhh, other forms of debauchery. Watch the video; made and edited by the best friend. It’s supposed to document how to gut sea urchins and eat the roe, but it ended up..somewhat
The only edible part of Sea Urchins are their gonads. I just want to emphasize this. It takes that much time and effort to gut the sea urchins so you can harvest and eat their gonads. GONADS. And god damn, it was worth it! A few pieces of Uni Sashimi would usually cost a couple of hundred pesos at Japanese restaurants. And we had so many that night! Sea Urchin is an acquired taste, most people I know shrugs in disgust whenever we order a plate of it. But this is rarelyordered after all, and we definitely recommend that you at try eating Sea Urchin gonads at least once in your life!
