I love bbq eel so I had to try this! This snack doesn’t smell like Japanese unagi sushi you eat in restaurants. Instead, a sweet fishy chili oil aroma. Most pieces are tender and somewhat easy to bite. A few are super tough like over charred octopus tentacles. The taste of Sichuan peppercorn began numbing my tongue while the sweet msg flavor counters. Spicy food is so common in northern China they don’t even bother showing it on the packaging. Had this been in other culture, the package would be engulfing in flames. Next time I’ll try submerging it in my steamy white rice and let it soften.

Ingredients: Eel, Corn Starch, Salt, Acetic Acid, Malt Syrup, Rapeseed Oil, Chili, MSG, Sesame, Edible Essence, Sugar, Spices, Yeast, Pepper, Food Additives (Sodium erythorbate, glycine, disodium 5 ribonucleotide, potassium sorbate).
