add raw horse meat to the list

Back at our favorite izakaya tonight, I tried raws horse meat (basashi). It tasted...kind of like steak and buffalo. It was okay -- a bit chewy. I wouldn't go out of my way to order it again. A couple of the people I was with really love it though. You eat it like regular sashimi, dipped in soy sauce.

Dude. That is over the line in my book. Hard core.

What is it with raw food?!

Maybe if you just said, "Tried [insert Japanese name for food] today" it would sound like something I might want to try, too!. :-) Dad
