I was at Sakura International Buffet some weeks back.
There was a wide variety of food there, ranging from Sushi, to Pizza to desserts. I had a blast of a time, trying out the different food there.
After a while, I noticed it – edamame beans.

Looks very cute doesn’t it?
Having heard of the virtues of edamame beans, I was very keen to give them a try. Excitedly, I took a plateful. It looked similar to a French bean so you eat them the same way don’t you? Innocently, I put the entire bean in my mouth.
It was horrible! It wasn’t like french beans at all! The skin was fuzzy, making it feel like I had caterpillars in my mouth and no matter how much I chew, the skin still remained fibrous.
It was only on my second visit that I found out that you’re supposed to squeeze the beans out of the pod to eat them. Turned out that they are actually quite tasty.
The video below shows you how to eat edamame beans. And hopefully, you don’t experience what I had 😛
