0092 Sushi Makeover

Jun 01, 2012, 03:22 PM, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan

Overfishing! Restrictions on tuna catches! What’s a Japanese sushi restaurant to do? Explore alternate forms of this traditional and popular cuisine, that’s what. For example, raw horse meat or raw deer meat have both been used in place of fish. And at least one Tokyo diner found the experience to his taste, saying that the “horse sushi was pretty good. It was soft, easy to bite off and had no smell.” Sure, the right amount of wasabi can improve – or, indeed, overwhelm entirely – the flavor of just about anything. But we still wouldn’t be surprised to hear that some Japanese sushi purists might find the idea of substitute ingredients, well, hard to swallow. #ceas #hacker #hope #japan #tsutsui
