Fugu RequestThursday, January 22, 2009
Have you heard/seen/eaten fugu? It's the poisonous puffer fish in Japan.
My interest in Japan has been completely consumed by curiosity of this fish and I have to say, Anthony Bourdain's Japan special didn't help! After doing some research, I found that a full fugu dinner costs upwards of $100 or so.
I'm heading to Tokyo on Saturday and need some recommendations on where to get good fugu, what to order (if not the full multiple-course dinner), and anything else ya'll know about this fantastic fatal beauty.
I promise I'll post pics when I return, but for now, you'll have to settle for this:
Cute, isn't he?
Looks like dinner to me! Let me know if you have any suggestions on fugu restaurants in Tokyo!
