A street food vendor is going viral not for her amazing food, but for her beautiful visuals.

TWICE attempt to eat Korea’s #1 disgusting smelling food

TWICE recently tried deep-fried skate (a type of sting ray) on SBSs food and cooking show, Paik Jong Wons Three Great Emperors.

This was the members first time trying the dish, but they all seemed quite excited to try it out despite its strong and unpleasant smell.

Skate is described to have a smell similar to hair dye or ammonia, and gives a similar sensation to when one eats wasabi due to its smell.

Jihyo said she liked the texture and taste of the deep fried skate, but she found the smell to be overpowering for the first few bites.
