Sotong / Cuttlefish

Let's continue with another Sotong Post after the initial Sotong Snack post. Recently there is a sotong craze, and one of the main culprit is none other than Sotong King.

This is the sinful Fried Sotong Eggs. Next to the sotong eggs, were the fish eggs :) High cholesterol stuff :P Aiks, Didn't come to my mind at that moment to break the eggs to see whether any little baby sotong hiding inside there or not..

The mouth watering delicacies, Sotong Kangkung aka Joo Hoo Eng Chai, served with sweetened spicy sauce with grounded peanuts sprinkled on top. Carcar.. Remember? I told u yesterday night I want to eat sotong. Tthis is what I had, Sotong Kangkung :)

One of the "Sotong" Stall in Penang. Serves Sotong Bakar, Sotong Rojak/Sotong Kangkung , Kerang Rebus, Kerang Bakar etc etc.. Poor Sotong being hanged upside down. Sob :(

And not forgetting this.. the photo of one of the Sotong Stall I took in Hatyai, Thailand. See? Everyone loves Sotong. Sotong Really Rocks :)

Whoaaa.. sotong again...

Sotong in the air... :P

Cumiiiiiiii!!!! sounds better than sotong nor cuttlefish!!! kekeke...

Eh... if I'm not mistaken, it is very high on cholesterol, right?

Ah, looks similar to the cuttle fish stand/carts seen in Vietnam. However, i've never had their fried eggs before. Looks delish but i don't think my 280 cholesterol can handle it. Thanks for the virtual taste.

WAAAAAAA!!! You told me not to touch sotong eggs, so you can sapu them all!!! Aiseh!! Looks very appetising lioa! Tulan lah like this! I also want some!!

angel said...

Too much cholesterol?
Have some Quaker Oats, rite Doc?

Chen said...

Selba,
Yeah, Sotong again ;)
Cumi ah? Cumi somehow always remind me of The old local children puppet shows (in the early 80's) "Cumi dan Ciki" - the Butterfly & the Monkey :P

Still not used to call sotong as cumi..
Sotong indeed is very high in cholesterol :P

Scruffy,
This is the first time I tried the Sotong eggs too.. I ate that few weeks ago :) But definitely not for those with hypercholesterolaemia.

LB,
did I tell u that? I can't remember :D I din sapu all lah.. eat little bit only, and that was few weeks ago liao..

Nothing special with the sotong eggs lah.. So no need to tulan. U can eat this delicacies at Nasi Kandar stalls in Penang ;) Very unhealthy though :P

Sotong kia ah? Mmmm... come to think about it, I only eat octopus kia before..

Yeah, nothing special with the Sotong egg :P I eat it cos I never tasted it before.. Out of curiosity ;)

izso,
hahha.. I don't eat all those stuff everyday, only once in a while. There's something called compilation of photos, and I don't eat all those stuff all by myself :) There is something called "sharing".

Don't worry, dude. If my cholesterol level is high, then i won't touch those stuff at all :) From the latest blood test not long ago, my total cholesterol level is only 4.0 mmmol/l, with Tg 0.8 mmol/l & LDL cholesterol 2.0 mmol/l :)
