Don't Tell PETA
If you are one of those types that couldn't vote in the last poll because the strangest thing you've had to eat was Chinese buffet...well brace yourself. Matt and I had raw horse meat last weekend. Although it was difficult to eat, (figuratively, not literally,) we repressed everything our culture taught us and swallowed it down. It was rich, sweet, and overall pretty tasty but I will never, ever eat it again. Watching the look on Matt's face made it really hard to enjoy... (Hideyoshi Yakitori, Kamakura)

Oh but you will be visiting Daruma (Hayashi) with the folks soon where they will be consuming basashi.

I prefer it cut much thinner, a la carpaccio, and dipped in raw quail egg and garlic.

If the Supreme Being hadn't meant for us to eat horses, he wouldn't have made them out of meat!
