Piranha Meunière on the Menu in Japan
Diners at Japan’s Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe will have the opportunity to get one over on one of nature’s creepiest and most terrifying creatures, because a restaurant there has put piranha à la meunière on the menu.
According to Rocket News 24, the terrifying Amazonian predator fish has been lightly floured and served up whole in a light butter sauce with capers and slivered almonds. It’s a delicate presentation for a creature that can allegedly devour a large mammal down to its bones in a matter of moments.
The French-inspired dish is a limited edition offering at the park’s Warakuen restaurant as part of a promotional tie-in with the water park’s special exhibit, “The Amazing Amazon Seen by Researchers — The Challenge of Uncovering its Mysteries.”
Uncovering the mystery of piranha meunière will cost about $19.50 per plate, but the bragging rights that come with having eating a piranha are priceless. Only five will be sold a day, so the park should probably expect some lines. The dish is currently scheduled to be on offer through May 31, but the park says the promotion could be extended if it is popular enough.
