    Default Odori don - The new dish where a squid comes "back to life" and dances on your plate

    Diners in Japan looking for a moving experience over dinner can now order a squid that dances off their plate.

    A restaurant has created a dish, named Odori don - literally meaning dancing squid rice bowl - by adding soy sauce to a fresh squid.

    The high salt content in the sauce reacts with ions in cells of the squids' tentacles creating voltage differences, and making the squid move.

    To prepare the dish, chefs at Ikkatei Tabiji, in Hakodate, Japan, first remove the head of the squid before serving the body, with tentacles intact, over a bowl of sushi rice.
    Seasoned soy sauce is then poured over it.

    As the squid is served so fresh, when the sauce is added signals across nerve cell membranes are re-activated temporarily, making it 'come back to life'

    The body is then removed and prepared by the chef to be served as a side accompaniment.

    The meal, which is proving popular with diners, costs around ¥2,000 or £15.30 per person

    The dish is such a success that the restaurant have patented the name of the creation.

    Now other restaurants in the area have begun making their own versions of the Hakodate dish, under different names.

    Well, if anyone ever wanted to find out what is the tackiest meal in the world, this is probably it. Would anyone here actually try this?

    Oh... oh god. That was horrifying.

    I will never, ever eat that in my life.

    The horror. The horror.

    That's equal measures gross/terrifying and cool. I was pulling a D: face during the entire video.

    I'd give it a try, since I've never had squid before. The dancing is pretty cool, and I'm not grossed out.

    I have to say, I watched a lot of shock sites and this was the absolute.... worst.

    I would only eat that if they threatened death.

    I think those baby octopuses where you eat the whole body are horrifying enough.... having my food come back to life is probably not top of my list.

    Poor squid. D:
    I could never eat that because it's gross, and I feel bad for the dead squid.

    I was deeply amused. Assuming there's no mortality rate (like Fugu or live octopi) I'd at least try it.

    Braiiiiiiiiiiiiiiins...
