A restaurant in Tokyo is serving up a fancy meal with a key ingredient: dirt. And this particular meal will set you back 10,000 yen or $110.
So how does a chef start using dirt as a main ingredient in food? The first course is a potato starch and dirt soup served in a shot glass rimmed with salt and topped with black truffle.
The second course was a salad with "vegetables like eggplant, tomato and turnips grilled and served with a dressing made from dirt .
The main course, “An aspic made with oriental clams and the top layer of sediment, and a dirt risotto with sauteed sea bass and burdock root.”
Dessert is none other than a dirt ice cream and dirt gratin followed by dirt mint tea that reportedly looked like muddy water.
