These suckers are huge!


In all honesty, I was reading Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (finally) and Anthony Bourdain’s description of the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo fascinated me. I googled it and got these crazy pics of giant fish. It once again drove home the point: when you eat delicious tuna, you are eating a fish that is the size of a golden retriever. And just like a golden retriever, the tuna’s vacant stare conceals a desire to tear the flesh from your bones and devour the sweet string-cheese of your tendons.

In totally unrelated news, my girlfriend’s taking me out for seafood tonight. More detail about the Tokyo tuna auction here. Great video from
the same source of the auction (hooray silly Japanese yelling!):
