a mate of mine said he was in a restaurant in japan. THE dish on the menu was ordered. there was a great ceremony as the dish was delivered to the table. so expensive was this delicacy, that it was served in a bowl of pure gold! and what food would deserve such pomp and ceremony? whale sperm. i shit you not. this is what i woz told. anyone else been to japan and can verify this? i wonder how they get it out?
