Would you pay to eat dirt?
There is a new restaurant in Tokyo that features an organic menu with prices up to $110 for some very unusual food. The main ingredient? Dirt. Yes, dirt. One patron describes the menu, saying, “The appetizer is a potato starch and dirt soup. Next up is a salad with dirt dressing. The main entrée features an aspic made with oriental clams and the top layer of sediment, and a dirt risotto with sauteed sea bass and burdock root. For dessert, there was dirt ice cream and a dirt gratin. And finally, there was a refreshing dirt mint tea.” It sounds interesting and not totally gross to be honest!
What do you think of the dirt menu? Would you try it?
