Fish in My Dish


On one of our free morning/afternoons our host family took us on quick trip to visit the nearby shipping canal and to enjoy some tasty tasty seafood at a restaurant right off the water.

Our first stop was to see the underground pedestrian tunnel that connected the two sides of the canal, which begins with a looong elevator followed by and even loooooonger walkway.  The numerous o’s denotes length, obviously

Should you need to get across by car, there is an alternative route which involves getting on a motorized carriage.

But the real reason we came to the canals was for lunch at one of our hosts’ favorite fish restaurants, and it did NOT disappoint.

When looking at the menu it was a. impossible to know which fish was what in English or b. narrow down to just one, so I just ended up getting the sampling platter of about 10 different kinds.  I’d say the most surprisingly enjoyable piece was boiled eel in sour jelly… fo’ realz.

De-lecker!  Where are the Roberts Matt I and II when you need them?!


All in all it was a quick trip, but nice to visit the canal, watch the ships go by and chow down on some delicious fresh fish!
