Dancing Fish Flakes

One of the spookiest presentation tricks used in Japanese pub food (izakaya) is topping hot food like takoyaki (fried octopus balls) with very thin shavings of katsuobushi.

The heat rising from the freshly fried food makes the thin shavings vibrate to and fro like seaweed.

It's both spectacular and creepy at the same time!
