    Day 5: Raw Crabs for Dinner - Busan, South Korea

    My friends and Cho are quite adventurous and like eating raw crabs.  I am just a little conservative on that.  Took a bite and ate the side dishes.  That was it.  It just feels wrong to eat a raw crab.  The thought of all the parasites living in the raw crab is enough to make me cringe.  They also taste quite fishy and I hate fish.

    We basically only order the raw crab and pork belly.  All the other dishes and soup were free....
    Just by smelling the bowl of raw crab, the aroma isn't too strong.  It's bathed in this soy sauce-like broth.  Smells like something that would taste good with rice.  Taste like sweet soy sauce too with a hint of fishiness.  The type of fishiness you get from dead raw fish market, which I can't handle.  The texture is like half melted jello/jelly,  The taste, the texture and the image of having a raw crab in my mouth is definitely not something I fancy.  I took 1 bite and that was it.  Any more bites and I would start throwing up.  On the other hand, my friends were all enjoying it, even Cho, who hates fish.  Surprise the fishiness in the crab meat didn't bother her.
