Anyone Know What This Is?


I was munching with some friends on a giant heap of dishes at new Shandong restaurant M & T, when the waitress sidled up to me and whispered: “You want to try some seafood from my town of Qingdao. Something we only have there?”

How could I resist? The tubes were rubbery, slippery, and slightly salty, but took most of their taste from the surrounding ingredients in the stir fry. The picture above gives a fair approximation of what it looked like. It is not intestines of any sort, nor is it pasta, though a three-year old at our table mistook it for pasta. Anyone know what this marine animal is called? 44-09 Kissena Boulevard, Flushing, Queens, 718-539-4100
