It is a delicacy rarely found outside of Japan, unknowingly stumbling into a small ramen shop in Kyoto for dinner, I spotted the sign on top of the bar. 馬刺し for 840円. I quickly persuaded my wife that this is a must try, she willingly agreed. When it arrived it looks just like any other raw red meat. It also comes with grated ginger, spring onions and soya sauce for dipping. We gave it a try and thought, it is a bit chewy and actually quite bland, there was not any special smells or taste to it, but anyway we gave it a try.
