    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.
  • Two Rotting Whales in Pacifica Torn Apart, Buried After Neighbors Complain of Stench

    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...

I guess we should have been a little more cautious when we discovered that his girlfriend was not...

    Yummy! A seafood bowl in Hokkaido, Japan contains salmon roe, seaweed, some other things, AND A DANCING SQUID! The creature isn't hoping his perforce is so moving you'll show him mercy. This dancer is dead! When you pour soy sauce on the dead squid, the muscles contract in response to signals from neurons, which transmit signals around the body by means of a series of sequential influxes of sodium across the cell membrane into the neuron. Doesn't that sound delish?

But that didn’t stop owner John Liang from splurging on a new tool last week: a Geiger counter, for 10,000 Hong Kong dollars (about US$1,300). Since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami set off Japan’s nuclear crisis, many diners in Hong Kong have steered clear of sushi restaurants for fear of radiation poisoning from food, particularly fish, that’s come from Japan. As business spirals down, some Hong Kong eateries have chosen to stay...
