Sea cucumber is disgusting. Shark fin soup is crap as well. Broth with barely any flavor (90% salt), shark meat is inedible (has the same texture as chewing on a timberland), its expensive and cruel for no reason whatsoever. At least fois gras is worth it, and it isn't NEARLY as cruel, not to mention, the entire duck gets eaten. I also tried birds nest soup, and thats a crock of crap as well. Salty broth with a mild almost mushroomy aroma....waste of money. Try it once, and forget about it.
