Any Fugu Restaurant in Nagoya
I plan to try Fugu while in Nagoya does anyone know where to taste this dish safely heheh and affordable
RE: fugu eh?
There are many restaurants through out Japan that specialize in serving fugu so you won't have any problems finding a restaurant (look for the picture of the blowfish). In fact, so many that I've often wonder about the licensing procedures for the cooks....lol. Winter is the best time (taste) for eating fugu. A decent fugu course (served raw, deep fried and boiled) will cost 6000 yen and up.
The specialty foods of Nagoya include unagi (eel) and miso (fermented soybeans).
