Ever since I saw the Simpsons episode with the fugu, I wanted to try it. Recently I finally had the chance! It’s a little expensive but worth trying. The bill turned out to be about 10,000 yen per person. (about 100 bucks) It might be rude of me to say this, but the texture is close to chicken… Still, I would eat it again.

Also there is an alcoholic beverage called “hirezake”, Japanese sake with fugu fins. You have to light it on fire before you drink it. It was aromatic and savory. I had 2 cups. Lighting it on fire before you drink it was very fun too.
