Horse Meat Sushi

I've never eaten horse before, but I'm always game for unusual meats. Horse as sushi? Sure, why not!

Casey Baseel of Rocket News 24 informs us that we may associate sushi with raw fish, but the term actually refers to rice mixed with vinegar. The meat involved can be anything, include horse. Baseel heard that a sushi restaurant in Tokyo called Nikuzushi offers horse sushi, so he visited to try it out. He says that it's pretty good:

Each cut had its own unique charms, whether the chewy nakaochi, firm akami, subtle char of the seared harami, or flavorful kick of the negi toro. What they all shared, though, was an exquisite deliciousness, accented by the meat juices mixing with the warm vinegared rice.

If I were staving and had a horse or donkey trust me I would eat the horse. Horses for centuries were used for food it's only in the last half of the 20th century and this one do we consider horse meat repulsive. And we shouldn't judge a country by what they eat.
