Hi Kirk !!! I am so jealous you go to try so much exotic sashimi and other dishes as well !! Count me in next time *drool* I will be a bit hesitant about the lobster though because when i have cooked lobster it makes me itch. I have yet to try the sashimi so I would probably give it a whirl too. What a bargain for so much seafood !

Reid

Hi Kirk,

Everything looks great and I'm glad you had a nice get together with some of the other food bloggers. I hope Annie and Ed enjoyed the food as well!

Kathy

Hi Kirk!
You were all qualified to do a delici-yoso dance judging from the pictures of the food! Everything looks so good!

YUM!!!!
That looks fabulous. I keep thinking I should just pick a sea urchin up whilst snorkling... what do you think?

BTW I have dissected them before... but only for my invertebrates classes!

Kirk,

That meal looked wonderful! What a nice meal and I am sure the company was awesome. :)

As always, your description does the food justice. I thought the meal was wonderful and interesting.

I did a complete delicioso dance in the privacy of my room later in the evening. The meal demanded it.

Sometimes, in fact, the evening was almost like the lab section of an invertabrate zoology class. We each had an echinoderm, a gastropod, two bivalves, a couple of crustaceans, and some fish (including some vertabrates was only fair, I guess).

The company was fine as well. It was nice meeting Annie and Owen.

Your photos are much better than mine. I need to work on my close-up technique.

Thanks again to you and Sammy for the great experience.

Hi Rachel - The comapny and food made this a wonderful dinner. I think I'd stay away from Lobster totally if I were you, or at least bring an Epi-Pen with me when I try it! BTW, the Uni was the star IMHO!

Hi Reid - Annie & Ed were great fun. Though I think we(Ed &I) may have been a litte strange for normal folk like them.

Hi Kathy - This was a pretty Uni-que meal, in that everything we wanted was available fresh and on the same day.

Hi Clare - When we were kids we used to eat the small Sea Urchins we caught(we called them vana), but they were purple inside - I don't know if I'd try it with one of these monsters though!

Hi Mills - Yes, it was alot of fun!

Hi Ed - Good to know you made it back(once again), so I'm guessing you're doing private delici-yoso dances now! LOL! See you in a few weeks.

What would we do without your amazing reports! Those few days when Typepad was down were agony!

Really loved the commentary on Ed's delici-yoso dance! Do you have a movie setting on your digital camera?

Kristy

Hi Kirk! Mmm...I LOVE butterfish! So ONO, for sure! Wow...what a most decadent dinner! I'm already hungry! ;)

Jack

Wow Kirk, that looks like a great meal. It sounds like a good time was had.

Candice

Hi Kirk - What a delicious post! Was the live uni a special request or do they have it readily available now? What did you think about the cost of your meal? I had dinner at Shirahama for $125 a person that was not nearly as spectacular as yours looked.

Kirk

Hi Elmo - Yes there's a movie setting, but it may be too intense for Younger Audiences!

Hi Kristy - This was a fun dinner, and alot had to do with not only the food, but the lively conversation.

Hi Jack - Yes, it was alot of fun!

Hi Candice - Sam doesn't usually have Live Uni as a regular item. But if he's in the mood to order, or has one of his regulars request some, he'll have a bunch. I thought this dinner was very reasonably priced. You could just have a dinner with some Nigiri, Live Uni, and Oysters for around $40-50/person. not including alcohol, which would really increase the bill quickly. Sam is willing to do something like this with advance notice.

Jo

Did I miss part of the read? (quite possible these days) It didn't seem like the uni was a major point of the meal? ::grins crookedly:: Or am I just reading to many real estate ads? The progression of dishes is outstanding. While I don't think I would be terribly keen on a lot of those items, I would love for Mike to be able to experience them.

Clare, I triple dog dare you to "grab" a couple on your next trip down! ;o)

Hi Jo - No in the beginning the focus was Uni(as I noted in the first paragraph), but as things would have it, after listening to others - who in the end didn't attend, it became alot larger - but it was the Uni that was the star! No doubt about that. So in my mind, Uni was still the "centerpiece".

howie

Wow, what a fantastic spread! My head is spinning. I can't wait to go back, but I'll probably have to wait for a special occasion to order some of these!

Kirk

Hi Howie - Let me know when you're ready.....

Jo

yep, to many real estate ads! ::wink:: Still, I think uni makes a better lamp decoration than food item. Next time you eat them, save me the shells and spines? ::smiles sweetly::

Kirk

Hi Jo - Don't sit or step on them! BTW, I think you'll like live Uni.....

LOL
if I can find one that isn't buried in the rocks and I have some gloves I will ;)
