A menu with $110 dirt plate debuted in Japan recently giving a new meaning to getting back to basics when eating. According to the Inquisitr on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, the menu at the French-inspired restaurant in Japan also features dirt in a salad dressing.
If you thought delicacies offered in other restaurants like frog legs and caviar were for those with an acquired taste, the dirt dishes offered at this new restaurant stretches that concept a bit further. There is nothing appetizing looking about the dirt dish pictured above. The menu was created by Chef Toshio Tanabe, who has worked at several Michelin-starred restaurants and he also got his training in France.
When you order a dirt dish from this new restaurant, you aren’t getting the same dirt that you’d find in your backyard. The dirt used to make these very expensive dishes is imported from Sir Lanka and India and it is tested for safety and purity.
Along with the dirt main entrée and the dirt salad dressing, you can order dirt ice cream for dessert. While many people hearing about the dirt offerings on this menu are probably finding this very unappetizing, people that have tasted this cuisine report to Rocket News that it can have an enticing taste to it for some.
