Japanese cuisine is best known for its delicious ramen, sumptuous sushi, and other delectable seafood dishes. But if you tend to veer off the usual meal offerings, then this area in Tokyo may just be the answer to your eclectic palate.
“Memory Lane”, which is located in the district of Shinjuku in Tokyo, is famed for restaurants serving exotic dishes. The area is popular among tourists and Japanese alike with a penchant for unusual dishes. The restaurants offer bizarre dishes ranging from soft-shelled turtles to snake liquor.
One weird dish, though, has sparked online interest – bullfrog sashimi. In a video circulating online, one restaurant in Memory Lane was shown serving bullfrog sashimi by beheading and skinning the frog, removing its innards, chopping it up, and then serving it to customers on ice with soy sauce and a slice of lemon.Although the frog died immediately after it was stabbed, it can still be seen twitching around the plate due to muscle contraction. Viewers were quick to express disgust over the eclectic dish, saying the way the dish was prepared was cruel.
Watch how the frog sashimi was prepared in the video below. A word of caution, though – it is not for the faint-hearted.
However, a New York-based Japanese chef was also quick to say in an interview that this dish is totally uncommon and bizarre.
