Although Alaska doesn't have the best mexican food in the world--they do have pretty amazing sushi! After work a bunch of us from the Arc went out for sushi...besides my occasional california roll I am not a seasoned sushi eater. I haven't tried a whole lot of it and it always makes me nervous to eat a bunch of raw fish. My co-workers were nice and tried to help me order something maybe not so "fishy". I ordered the 'Spider Roll' I thought I was safe with that since it was fried crab but little did I know it was those little baby crabs that have the soft shell and sticking out of my sushi roll was these little crispy legs that looked like a giant trantula deep fried. I ate one (with a bunch of wasabi). It was really creepy so I ended up trading with everyone around me. I got rid of all my crab but I gained a lot of weird things, raw eel and tuna which was actually really good! One of them was rolled in little tiny fish eggs. It was a very interesting experience. Below is the picture of the eel...it looks like a big slug, nasty! --but surprisingly tasty!
