Fugu (Video), 07.08.2016

Fugu is the Japanese word for pufferfish and the dish prepared from it. The tiger blowfish (torafugu) is the most prestigious edible species and the most poisonous.

The restaurant preparation of fugu is strictly controlled by law in Japan, and only chefs who have qualified after three or more years of rigorous training are allowed to prepare the fish.

I was walking back to my hotel with my wife after a simple dinner at Saizeriya in Ikebukuro, we saw these tiger pufferfishes swimming in the fish tank outside a Japanese restaurant.
