Can You Eat Jellyfish?

Jellyfish, normally associated with horrible pain followed by someone urinating on you leg… is this really a food? Yes, so please don’t piss down my throat, I’m fine! More surprising, its really very tasty! Maybe its all down to the chef, but I loved it and look forward to eating it again.

Probably the most pleasant TEST I have been involved in. It tastes like slightly fishy cows liver. So if you like liver and onions you’ll be pretty happy with this. I look forward to eating it again next time I head to China.
