#21 – Fugu – $280
Fugu is a very common dish available all over Japan. Fugu is in other parts of the world better known as puffer fish. The actual fugu fish has to be prepared by a chef licensed for the preparation of fugu. If you order fugu prepared by an unlicensed chef and start to eat it, that would probably be your very own last supper.
Fugu is abundant with toxins which if not removed completely from the certain parts of its body can cause damage and death to one eating ill-prepared fugu fish. If you are brave enough to try out fugu, try it out in the most expensive restaurants, because fugu prepared at mid-price restaurants are often prepared by unlicensed chefs.
