Japanese cuisine offers an abundance of gastronomical delights with a boundless variety of regional and seasonal dishes as well as international cuisine. They have bizarre foods that can make you vomit. They love eating many kind of sashimi. This video gives a whole new meaning to having a frog in your throat! It shows a chef in a restaurant in Japan, stabbing, beheading and skinning a live frog to serve as sashimi and has sparked outrage online.


In the video, a large frog is stabbed, skinned, gutted and served up on an iced plate with a lemon slice and soy sauce. Though the frog is killed instantly by the chef’s knife,  it takes a few agonizing minutes for the frog to stop moving. In those moments, you see the creature\'s eyes blinking back at the camera while maudlin music plays in the background and at points the frog flails its arms and flops around on the dish, while its heart is still beating.

It is no problem with people eating raw food or even frogs, but eating pieces of them while their technically still living just makes my skin crawl. I do not know if this qualifies as animal cruelty, just plain disgusting or both, but it is definitely not right.
