Wanna eat me?

Saw this at Imperial Treasure Restaurant’s fish tank at Great World City. A rock?

No. Can’t judge a fish by its looks. It’s call Stone fish or Okoze in Japanese.

You can actually eat its meat.

Would you eat it, though?



  1. once i saw a cooking program tat featured the ‘stone fish’. according to the cook show – apparently, it was the season for ‘stone fish’ in hong kong, so they boiled the fish bones along with other ingredients for at least a few hours to make the soup. then the meat was thinly sliced and placed in the cooked n clear soup.

    the soup n fish meat sure looked good enuff to eat… u couldnt actualli tell tat the meat was actually from this funny lookin sea creature. like ppl say, its not the outside tat matters – wat realli counts is wats inside.. is tat how they say it? ha ha… 🙂

  2. Heard it is extremely poisonous

  3. @Raymond Chua
    It’s poisonous. But, its meat can be eaten.

    Yes. One can’t judge a book by its cover. Same for Stone Fish! 🙂

    You know quite alot about it. Not bad. you can remember what you’ve watched. *Amazing!*

  4. I think I read somwhere that stonefish are poisonous only if they come into contact with you and it pokes you 😦
