Well, one of the dishes she ordered for us was a jellyfish, shrimp, and asparagus stir-fry. Jellyfish! It looked fairly tasty-- it was kind of translucent and ruffly-looking, and I do like shrimp and asparagus, so I helped myself to an experimental-sized portion. The shrimp was delicious, and the asparagus was delicious, but the jellyfish was kind of like eating... Flavored cartilage. Rubbery and crunchy at the same time.
So, I won't be eating jellyfish anytime again soon, but I feel like I had a thoroughly cultural experience, which is, I suppose, what the professor intended.
