One night our friends from Japan took us out for Fugu (blowfish). It was explained to us that the fugu served to us at this restaurant was a mountain version in which the swim bladder was not toxic. I had no idea that there was such a thing and I was kinda sad that there wasn't a chance of dying but a great experience nonetheless.
The first dish was the gills served in torched sake.
Next fugu sashimi. This had a nice clean taste. The most similar taste that I can think of would be kawahagi (file fish).
The last dish was a fugu karaage.
Overall, a really tasty dinner and a great experience but in the end it felt something was missing since there was no risk. I guess it is easy to say since I am alive and my mouth isn't tingling.
