Fugu

Filed under: Cuisine, Strange — myyearinjapan @ 2:49 pm

I tried Fugu (blowfish) for the first time! Fugu is famous dish from Japanese cuisine because if it isn’t prepared correctly, it can be lethal. I tried some at a famous, local tempura (deep-fried, battered food) restaurant. This restaurant is known for dish it serves that plies on a tower or fried food over a bowl of rice. Competitive eaters come to the restaurant to try to finish it off. And they also serve a fugu dish. So, I was able to try some fugu (actually, my friend ordered the fugu, so I only had a taste of it). It was pretty good. I liked it a lot. But, it was kind of hard to tell what it would be like on it’s own with all the deep fried batter covering it.

Also, I just want to mention briefly that this is my 100th post! yay!
I started this blog to try to force myself to record and remember my year abroad, intending to post at least one picture for each day. I haven’t quite kept my promise of posting something each day, but I’ve put up well over 100 pictures and hopefully am making an interesting account of what I see and experience over here. I hope this blog isn’t too boring or anything. Thanks for reading!
