Japan’s Weird Food: Basashi

Every culture usually has one food that we would not consider eating in Canada, and in this part of Japan, it’s horse.
Raw horse to be precise.

Basashi, as they call it, is raw or slightly grilled horse and is a specialty of the prefecture beneath Fukuoka, Kumamoto. I’ve seen it served at fancy restaurants, not so fancy restaurants and even people’s houses, and it weirds me out a little every time.  What weirded me out even more though, was how much I liked it.
