It's the House Special Fish at Seafood Village.
It comes in its own chafing dish, and it's basically a fish stew, made with a whole fish, some conpoy, a handful of sour cabbage, and little bits of chicken parts to add depth and flavor to the stew.
Result? Gelatinous heaven -- it's like Jell-O of the sea.
And, if I'm dining with people who are younger than me, then I get first dibs on the fish carcass and head, and then just step away from the table folks. The only tools I need are my hands because chopsticks are useless when all you are doing is sucking and plucking. I stop only when there's nothing left of that fish except for a pile of bones and maybe some fins.
Of course, my face ends up covered in this thin film of fish stew -- a nice fish stock patina, if you will. If I'm lucky my shirt is spared, or I'm just wearing something that's disposable.
The perfect ending? I excuse myself to the restroom to, um, y'know, tidy up.
What about you? Where do you go to indulge in your favorite "messy food"?
