\(^ ^ ) My name is Yuba. I'm a 23 year old teacher and freelance translator living in Tokyo, Japan. Sometimes I model. Sometimes I sleep. A lot of the time, I take photos of what I'm about to eat. Yum yum yum!

I may be busy busy with my new job, but I found time on Monday evening to go out to dinner in Nishi-Azabu. I didn't order, so when they brought the food each dish was something of a surprise... But I hadn't been expecting raw organ meat.

As you might be, I was rather hesitant about trying it - at least when I didn't even know what part of the body of what animal each pile of goo came from! I know now that the far-left one came from a bird of some kind, the second-left is heart, and the far right is.. Liver, I think?

But I was encouraged to try, and it was all SURPRISINGLY DELICIOUS. I'm not sure if I should be pleased or disturbed. :(

(I love that I get to use the tags "yummy" and "gross" in the same post, though!)

If i'm honest, the thing on the far right looks like poo... Very well done for trying that! ;)

I'd have to REALLY trust the restaurant before I even considered trying this. In fact I'd have to RUN the restaurant.

Grats for trying it and glad you enjoyed it

The one on the far right was REALLY hard to pick up with chopsticks. I almost gave up completely! It was sticky-chewy.


I was completely fine. This is Japan - they know how to prepare raw meat and fish, and the restaurant was expensive. Don't worry!


I didn't put the name of the restaurant in the post, actually. :) Nishi-Azabu is just the area of Tokyo I was out in. I could ask if they deliver! Hahaha.
