Best (Dead) Insects New York 2001 - Taka

Will it be some dish constructed of seaweed to look like grasshoppers, or like the cocktail of the same name, something that is simply an intense shade of green? I ordered. What showed up was a small bowl containing what looked like sticky branches of hijiki, but upon closer inspection, proved to be a dozen smallish jet-colored crickets, sweet and crunchy. Best part: dining with friends and letting one hang halfway out of your mouth.
