Japanese Restaurant Serves Dishes Meant For Only the Bravest Foodies

Sushi, tempura, ramen, yakitori, wagyu beef and so much more — these dishes are exactly why many of us love Japanese restaurants (and Japan in general) that some wouldn’t mind splurging thousands of dollars to experience it all in one day.

But of course, there’s always more than meets the eye. For one, we know Japan is home to countless weird stuff that keeps us amused, heartbroken or not very pleased. Sometimes, the Japanese can be so good at surprising its audience.

Now it seems we’ve stumbled upon the craziest thing in Japan yet. It’s a restaurant called Chinjuuya, located in the Noge district in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.

Apparently, Chinjuuya, which literally translates to “rare meat monger,” can stir all sorts of feelings inside guests once they see what’s on the menu: worms, scorpions, insects, salamanders, lizards, and crocodile limbs, among others.

Check them out below:

Despite its unorthodox menu that’s quite pricey, Chinjuuya is said to be popular among locals and tourists, according to Elite Readers. A fried whole salamander, for instance, can be yours for $190.

Do you see yourself dining in at Chinjuuya soon?
