Yucky Sounding Desserts from Japan

Would you like some beef with your parfait? What about some raw tuna? Pork? From February 9, an Italian restaurant in Osaka called Del Sole is serving up parfait ice cream desserts with slices of kuro (black) wagyu. It's part of the restaurant's special Valentine Day's menu.

According to Entabe, the concept behind the dessert isn't to gross everyone out, but show that you can enjoy meat with sweets. You can, but I'm not convinced I'd want to.

As Girls Channel points out, this is the latest in a line of unusual deserts. Last year in Kouchi Prefecture, a restaurant's katsuo (skipjack tuna) parfait made waves online. It's katsuo sashimi with garlic served on soft serve ice cream with green veggies, tomatoes and Pocky.

Apparently, it's rather popular among locals there.

What about fried prawns? Would you like that?

Then, there's tonkatsu (fried pork cutlet) parfait, which was born in Aichi Prefecture and has been around for decades (it even has its own Wikipedia page).

You're supposed to eat the cigarettes, too.

Here is tonkatsu cake, which is no joke.

And which has also been around for a while.

These desserts are most unusual in Japan. Typically, parfait and cake are just that: parfait and cake. The addition of meat and various fried and raw things is unique to these particular restaurants.

As bad as some of these sound, they might taste a-OK. The recent chocolate French fries from McDonald's weren't so bad, so who knows, perhaps raw tuna in ice cream is tasty.

    I've had steak with chocolate before and they went together surprisingly well. Not really much of a stretch further to go to ice cream.
    Though I will say the idea of mixing fish with sweets is not appetising to me at all. How can its natural saltiness balance with the sweets?


    Holy vegen batman.
    You know how sometimes theres that meme for " i have the weirdest boner right now"?
    my tongue is doing the SAME for these, well confused; not getting an erection.

    Why am I suddenly reminded of Iron Chef? This seems like something you'd see in that!

    This is something straight from Soma's frickin' Shoukegeki!

    Actually is quite interesting.. you get your entree, main and dessert all in one..
