Japanese twitter user finds a miniscule pawprint inside salmon roe.
It might seem like the restaurant is just out to make an extra buck, but those veggies could be keeping you from making an old-school sushi faux pas.
If you have an adventurous palate, get ready to entertain your taste buds with this new take on sushi!
Sapporo’s Nagoyaka-tei takes full responsibility for these (literally) over the top roe-lover’s rolls.
There are a couple of distinct price tiers to seafood in Japan. Squid and octopus tend to be very budget-friendly, with a step up in price for sashimi-grade tuna and salmon. Among the most premium offerings of all is where you’ll find salmon roe, or ikura as it’s known in Japanese.
Due to its high cost, ikura is usually served in modest quantities, sometimes seeming more like a garnish than a legitimate component of the meal. However, that’s not the case at these four Tokyo restaurants, which dish up such generous portions that their ikura literally overflows the bowl.
