This weekend, Yokohama's Omoshiro Aquarium is holding a special event: You can eat those underwater pill bugs called isopods. Delicious!
Note that people won't be eating the Giant Isopods . Also, the smaller isopods are uncommon food in Japan, but a few people online seem to have tried it. Japanese Twitter user manpokenautilus described the flavour as "delicious," adding that isopods have a strong shrimp flavour and "aren't smelly at all." Others described it as tasting like crab.
Pretty sure I could eat a fried one, which is how they will be served at the event. Then again, maybe not.
