We once dined at a restaurant and "Danish lobster tails" were on the menu and sounded tasty. They turned out to be crayfish (crawfish).
So, for those of us who like to see what we are getting ready to eat, as well as "know what it is," can you recommend a few Japanese, Thai, or Korean dishes, that are "able to be identified and not so spicy?"
Google images sure found a few that can not be identified, as to what they are.
They have a name but exactly what they are.........
We are not into snails, octopus, and the like.

Japanese:

I really enjoyed my miso ramen at a restaurant in Osaka.

Kaiseki was also an unforgettable experience.
