    I don't see myself becoming a Natto fan.

    I'd need to hear something very positive about it before I'll be pulling in if I ever pass a "McNattos" restaurant.

    I'll say Nah to Natto...seems too complicated to eat, or even to be around. Make mine a shrimp cocktail.

    What the heck is natto? Saw it once on "Iron Chef" - looks almost like rice krispie treats before they firm up.

    I've had natto a couple of times. It's a standard appetizer at our sushi place of choice (Mr. Sushi in Coolidge Corner, Brookline) and it's moderately popular there. It tastes exactly like what it is, fermented soybeans, so it's a little sharp and mostly just sort of bland. It's one of those things like of like flying fish roe, where you eat it as much for the cool texture as for the actual taste.

    My Japanese relatives think I'm crazy for liking natto. It's an aquired taste. When I lived in CA, I could pick it up in any grocery store (plus 90% of my other Japanese cravings). Here in my part of Texas (Arlington), I need to go to the local asian grocery store for my fix.

    Another way to doctor it up is to crack a raw egg and mix it in (nowadays, you need to make sure the egg is pasturized).

    After the "Steve, Don't Eat It!" natto experiment, I have to admit... I think I'll have to continue to pass on natto. And there aren't many things I won't try sight-unseen.

    Natto, every morning for breakfast. Maguro natto is one of my fav apps.

    Darling....mustard and a raw egg only for b'fast.

    Bit of raw tuna as a dinner app.

    Very good stuff for your body...Ume Boshi is probably better but a bit more difficult to find the good stuff. Paste sucks and the small ones aren't worth crap.

    Never mixed ume and natto.

    I keep large ume I brought from Japan in a jar in the frig and add large amounts of red shiso each summer to extend the ume taste. Ume in the states isn't the same as the premium stuff in Japan. I get friends to bring it to me when they visit.
