Now you must be wondering "What the heck is Watabee"?? You know its a fern of some sort(its a water fern, that grows on the edges of a stream). Now you must be wondering "Where would I find that"? You can find it in some Asian or Filippino Stores but if you can't sorry than I guess someone would have to send it to you from Hawaii. Now there is many thing people will have trouble knowing what it is or where can I find some - another one is Kamaboku (fish cake)- again look for find it at an Asian store - it might take you sometime to find these ingredients & I hope you have them in your area - keep me posted please!
