Some people are squeamish about eating raw seafood to begin with, but this Japanese delicacy is wild enough to make most Western stomachs turn in all sorts of unexpected ways. Gimme toro or yellowtail sashimi any day of the week before this, please.

A live squid with its head removed is served on top of a bowl of sushi rice, accompanied by sashimi prepared from the head (usually sliced ika (squid) and ika-kimo (squid liver)) as well as other seafood. Seasoned soy sauce is first poured on top of the squid to make it “dance”.
