    I think I'm going to need a bigger fishing rod.
    This is Whale. It's good grub. A bigger steak would have been good. Ate this at a restaurant but my daughter reckons she knows a fish market at which we can buy a good size chunk.
    I'm in Japan by the way. Not harpooning them back home.

    There are many things that can be read into that picture, and no it's not that you are an evil man for eating whale (although I am sure there are some bunny loving, tree hugging greenies that would think that). I see a cheap bugger as you only bought two sticks and I see someone who is clearly not hungry as you only bought two sticks. I also see a restraunteur who is a cheap arse (a whale is a fuck off big animal so should be rendered down into fuck off big steaks and not tiny wee morsels threaded on a skewer). Oh and Dundee sees a man that has no taste as there is no Tomato Sauce.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yeah those bunny and tree huggers can go off somewhere else and try to multiply with trees and bunnies.
    I'm not that good at the lingo Rushy. I asked for a side of whale and they brought me a side dish.
    The texture is a little like lean beef. It's firm to bite and you would expect it to be chewy but it breaks down OK. The taste is different. There was no visible fat but the meat was fatty and easy to swallow. I'm trying to compare it to something but it is quite hard, possibly a mix between good pork and duck.
    But it was bread crumbed and deep fried so that may have altered the taste.
    I'm looking forward to cooking up a steak in a pan myself. Then I'll be able to compare it to something hopefully.
    EeeBees we are heading to Nara to check out the Sika in a few days. Sarah has a couple of days of work left then she is our guide. She can speak the lingo. Until then it's a game of shirades(?) for us. Lucky for us she lives on Port Island and there is a train track to Kobe airport. So when we get lost, directions to Kobe Airport get us back to familiar territory. And the people are so helpful.

    Tonight's is a bit different too.
    Tripe cooked with vegetables, noodles and tofu. With a raw horse meat dunked in soy sauce for an entrée.
    The raw horse was pretty good too.

    Interesting.
    How expensive is it there compared to other meats?

    I'm not sure sorry. Will check and report back.
    It's not that easy to find. The white stuff looks like fat but appears to be meat.
    The taste doesn't jump out and say whale. It just taste like different bacon.

    What's unethical about sustainable fishing?

    I think I'll have issues pulling the trigger on one of these now though.

    Favorite country after NZ. Nicest people, beautiful country and incredible food. And the snowboarding is second to none

    I agree. Don't know about the snowboarding.
    I wish I had made an effort to learn some of the language before coming.
