China Street Restaurant Scene – Eels waiting for dinner prep, originally uploaded by Serenity in China.
I think I need to be a bit more daring with my street photography–let me explain.
While Julianne and I waited for our take out orders of noodles we watched a cook take eels out of this pot one by one. He then used the tools in the left side of this shot to pin the eel to the wooden table top, skin it, gut it, and prep it for cooking . . . it was awesome.
I really should have just used gestures and miming to ask if I could shoot him prepping the eels–maybe next time I’ll try again.
I haven’t tried eel here in China, or back when I was in Korea (the opportunity never presented itself) . . . but maybe I’ll get some of our Chinese friends to take Julianne and I and we’ll try it.
I wonder what it tastes like? Hmmm . . .
