Bite Into This “Fish Parfait”! Also Frog Burgers! Fish Dogs! The World’s Wildest Food Mashups!

Behold The “Fish Parfait!”

Here is another reason why I love the internet. What you see here is a “fish parfait”. Yes, an ice cream parfait topped with fish. According to my friends at the terrific website “RocketNews24”, this is:

“a lightly grilled sashimi bonito parfait, which combines the rich, succulent flavours of seared fish and garlic with the sweet taste of ice cream!”

Yes it is – a FISH-TOPPED ICE CREAM TREAT!

Behold The New Taste Sensation!

RocketNews24 reports that this unusual dessert is available from Restaurant Yuzuan in Nankoku, Japan. The restaurant specialises in “katsuo tataki”, or as we would say, “lightly grilled bonito”. The unique tuna parfait comes in three sizes: small (1 slice of bonito) for 490 yen (US$3.91), medium (2 slices) for 790 yen ($6.30) and large (3 slices) for 999 yen ($7.98).

Of course, thanks to the incredibly entertaining website “RocketNews24” for the story – this website is a never-ending series of fascinating stories from Asia. You can see the fish parfait story in its entirety here:

And speaking of unique food mashups, I want to remind you of some of the more memorable efforts of the past, beginning with Asia’s unique take on the all-american hot dog!

The “Fish Dog!”

You can take it as an insult to hot dog lovers everywhere, but I see it as a fascinating cultural exchange…instead of a mystery meat hot dog, why not a fish? See more here:

And if a fish hot dog isn’t what you crave, then what about this black-bunned masterpiece:

The “Frog Burger!”

You can have frog the way nature intended: as a burger! I would try this without flinching – frog’s legs taste good, and a burger is a burger is a burger, right? Read all about the “frog burger” here:

And if you really want to try a unique flavor mashup, have a strawberry burger! Just like the fish parfait dessert, someone had the bright idea to make your burger a bit more “fruit forward!”
