Endangered fast food of the day

A Japanese burger chain has started offering whale burgers:

The 380 yen ($3.50) slice of fried minke whale in a bun went on sale Thursday at Lucky Pierrot, a restaurant chain in the port city of Hakodate on Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido.

"The taste and texture are somewhere between beef and fish," said Lucky Pierrot manager Miku Oh.

And the contender for statement of the year goes to the very same Ms. Oh:
"e have decided to add a whale burger to our menu due to strong demand from our customers and feel very thankful to the whales for allowing us to make the burgers.
If only the whales could thank her back.

Sinoeye says "the Japanese are too sophisticated to waste whale meat on burgers." Apparently not. We'll wait for Yobbo's first hand report as to the taste.

Ha, looks like I over estimated Japanese sophistication. Thanks for blogrolling me.
