#053 Kumamoto Basashi

What is basashi?

basashi1

Raw horse meat.

It will sound scary to most foreign ears but it is a delicacy in Kumamoto prefecture.

They are very proud of it as their local specialty.

It is served thinly sliced with a side of soy sauce sometimes with ginger and onion added for flavour.
