Japan has long been the purveyor of pervy weirdness. Whether it’s tentacle porn or vending machines filled with used underwear it’s the land of weeaboo creepiness. And there’s nothing Westerners like us love more than being judgemental about it while also being absolutely fascinated by it all.
Well now Japan has upped its game with the introduction of feet flavoured fried chicken that promises to replicate the smell, flavour and stickiness of the real thing. The Tenka Torimusu chain restaurant has begun serving the unique line of fried chicken, and has achieved the combination of feet and chicken by including fermented soy beans in the batter recipe in order to recreate the pungent odour of ‘girls’ soles’.
As if to make this whole thing even weirder the recipe itself was inspired by the Japanese masked idol group Kamen Joshi and it’s the not the first time they teamed up with this particular restaurant.
Last year the two came together to release fried chicken that tasted of girls’ sweat. Once again, the line was apparently quite popular. And if you're willing to take some adventurous journalists' word then quite tasty! Personally, I'm not sold, and you won't find me ordering either item from that menu any time soon!
So there we have it. The world’s worst flavour for fried chicken!
