Also, as far as soup goes: I love pho, but I can't stand ramen. It's the only Japanese food I won't eat. I've had it every which way and it doesn't agree with me. Something about the broth is so unappetizing.

I would rather eat instant noodles with hot sauce than restaurant ramen.

You could have just gone to your local supermarket where fresh prepared sushi is very common and isn't that expensive. In convenience stores it is even cheaper but then quality starts to suffer.

Guess you have never had a "lucky" oyster. My BH got one at a higher end restaurant. Food poisoning is not pretty.

I’m sure you’re right, but that is not what the Japanese family I lived with did, at least while I was there. (They did take me to a high-end restaurant once where there was a set menu of sashimi.) I was just trying to counter the misconception that a majority of the Japanese diet consists of raw fish.

yes it is served (whale testicles in Japan, chicken testicles in Thailand, lamb testicles in China)
and lest some may be looking down their noses at different countries, must include too that bull testicles are served in the USA and Canada, including Colorado, Idaho, Texas, Montana, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, California, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin. And a bunch of "testicle festivals"
Never thought to include that, but yeah.

It absolutely does not. Ask me how I know (I lived in Japan - in Yokohama, for three years).

One thing I clearly remember is that the Japanese would eat small fish dried, like chips.

I also remember the market in Yokohama, and the octopi and squid just hanging there on hooks. The flies! No thank you.

My son regularly sends me photos of Korean food, and the preparations of it. OMG! Once again, no thank you. I told him that when I visit him in Korea, I won't be eating much if any seafood.

Koreans do eat a dish that I really love. It's sort of like tacos, but the taco shells are made of some sort of leaves they eat. Delicious! I can't remember what it's called, sorry. I think inside the leaves is some pork and other stuff.

I actually like a lot of pork and beef Korean dishes. Also, egg Korean dishes generally. Just not the seafood. Blech! And no larvae! No bugs!

I’m sure there are a lot of things I’d choose not to eat. I don’t eat raw fish, and if I never had rice again, I wouldn’t miss it.

I love Asian food Chinese food, Vietnamese mmm pho, Thai, and Korean I haven't had much unless except when I get Kimchi and cook up some rice cakes.

Filipino food would probably be my least favorite.
