    A Phoenix woman reportedly sent a man she met on a dating website more than 159,000 texts – including one stating that she wanted to turn his kidneys into sushi. According to police documents obtained by the Arizona Republic, Jacqueline Ades allegedly sent the man the messages over the span of nearly 10 months. She had originally been accused of sending him more than 65,000 text messages but the number was reportedly more than double that. The arrest records listed the woman as “showing signs of mental illness,” the newspaper reported. Ades reportedly met the victim, a Paradise Valley man...

    White House senior adviser Stephen Miller threw out $80 worth of sushi after a bartender at the restaurant he ordered from flipped him off as he walked out of the restaurant, according to The Washington Post. The bartender from the restaurant, located near Miller's apartment, reportedly followed Miller out the door and shouted "Stephen!" The bartender then flipped both middle fingers and cursed out Miller, who then threw out the sushi in disgust, Miller later told colleagues. Earlier this year, Miller was shouted at "Better be better!" by a stranger while walking through Dupont Circle in Washington DC, The Post...

    Sushi lovers in South Korea will be able to taste a new breed of tuna in local restaurants and gourmet shops as farm-bred bluefin tuna is coming to the market this year, the fisheries ministry said Friday. Local fishermen have tried to cultivate bluefin, one of the most popular fish with its rich red meat, to meet the high demand, but their efforts were fraught with challenges like typhoons and cold winters. After a lot of trial and error over the past decade, Hongjin Fishing Association said it succeeded in growing bluefin tuna in a pen in waters off Tongyeong,...

    A California man is likely altering his regular sushi habit after discovering a tapeworm that may have entered his body through the raw salmon he loves so much... ...The man thought he was dying, Banh said, “Oh my goodness my guts are coming out of me,” and started pulling at the worm. Once the tapeworm moved in his hand, Banh said, instead of just being horrified, the man was also relieved to know that it wasn’t his own entrails.

  • KitKat Releases New “Sushi” Set in Japan

    KitKat has just released images of its wild new “sushi” sets and it’s undecided whether to be relieved or upset about the fact they’re only available for a limited time. The bars come in three flavors, which don’t taste anything like the varieties of sushi they’re modeled to look like — unless you count the seaweed. kitkat-sushi-1 kitkat-sushi-2 kitkat-sushi-3 There’s tuna sushi, which actually tastes like raspberry. The seaweed wrapped sushi omelet is really a pumpkin pudding KitKat. Lastly, the sea urchin sushi is a Hokkaido melon with mascarpone cheese KitKat. All three have a base made of puffed rice...

    An investigation by the city attorney's office has led to misdemeanor convictions against eight sushi restaurants whose "lobster rolls" apparently lacked a key ingredient. Investigators bought the rolls at a sampling of restaurants and then sent them to a laboratory for DNA testing. The results revealed that less-expensive seafood, including crawfish or pollock, had been substituted for lobster.

    NBC Bay Area ^ | May 19, 2014 | Lisa Fernandez and Stephanie Chuang
    After some haggling over which jurisdiction was responsible for two dead whales washed up in Pacifica, crews on Tuesday began ripping up mammal flesh and burying the weighty beasts after neighbors complained of their rotting stench. An excavator dug into the whale flesh, tearing skin and muscle, before getting ready to sink the pieces of blubber and bone deep into the sand. Pacifica's Interim Chief of Police Dan Steidle said that after more than a month of discussion, it's been determined that the area where the whales washed up on April 14 and May 5 belong to the San Francisco...

    In 2013, Fox News proudly broadcast an interview with a young food stamp recipient who claimed to be using the government benefit to purchase lobster and sushi."This is the way I want to live and I don’t really see anything changing," Greenslate explained to Fox. “It’s free food; it’s awesome."That story fit a longtime conservative suspicion that poor people use food stamps to purchase luxury items. Now, a Republican state lawmaker in Missouri is pushing for legislation that would stop people like Greenslate and severely limit what food stamp recipients can buy. The bill being proposed would ban the purchase with food stamps...

    NPR ^ | May 23, 2014 | MICHAELEEN DOUCLEFF
    Raw fish is sizzling hot right now. Los Angeles has brand new bars devoted to an Italian style of raw fish, called crudo. President Obama kicked off his visit to Asia last month noshing nigiri at Jiro's famous sushi bar. And back in December, The New York Times named Sushi Nakawaza as its top restaurant of the year. But why do so many of us find utter bliss in eating raw sea creatures but aren't so inclined to chow down on uncooked birds, cows or pigs? A big part of it is gravity — or the effective lack of it...

    President Barack Obama grabbed dinner at one of the world's most exclusive restaurants while visiting Tokyo on Wednesday. Sukiyabashi Jiro has no set menu and meals typically last 15 to 20 minutes - but 20 pieces of sushi will set you back 30,000 Japanese yen (about $300). And that's if you're lucky enough to land one of only ten seats in the cozy basement venue.

    LA Weekly ^ | Thu, Jan 9, 2014 | Besha Rodell
    A great sushi chef in another state once complained to me about a health code violation he'd received for making sushi without gloves. "Making sushi with gloves is like making love with a condom," he said. "It just isn't the same." Well, as of Jan. 1, California's law has changed so that there can no longer be any bare-handed contact with foods that won't be cooked. That means baked goods, salads - and yes, even sushi. According to Nation's Restaurant News, the new law will undergo a "soft rollout" over the next six months, meaning restaurants will receive warnings rather...
