Raw horse mane sushi

IMG_7489

As if eating raw horse sushi wasn’t strange enough, the plate of sushi I grabbed from the conveyor belt of a sushi restaurant in Kyoto also presented me with a raw horse mane nigiri. Raw horse mane? What does that even mean? I thought the mane of a horse was the hair growing on its neck, so I reckon this might be the meat from the next.

It turned out to be pretty much a big slice of fat. It was slightly yellow like chicken fat can be. The texture was somewhere between soft and chewy. I was not blown away. I have eaten fat in other places where it was rendered down, and tasted pretty nice, but this was just one horrible bite of fat. I managed to eat it though, but it’s truly a thing of nightmares.
