    This was the first can of an omakase curated by Dan. It didn’t disappoint. While the appearance was surprising (if you didn’t watch the video), the taste was meaty (not fishy) with a little spice. The appearance reminded me of the pictures of the Spanish baby eels, but without the exorbitant price. It was very good over rice. A great experience! I would buy this product again.
