Emma Allen describes her experience eating jellyfish: http://nyr.kr/K2vwKi
“It arrived on a small plate: a mound of what looked like sautéed onions, golden brown, sprinkled with chopped scallions and sitting in a pool of clear, yellowish broth. It was cut into long slivers, gelatinous noodles, some of which had disconcerting freckles. My dining companion (who, as a round-the-clock vegetarian, was abstaining) watched the dish warily—it seemed to never stop jiggling, like it belonged in an old Jell-O commercial.”
