I often hear of interesting foods from Japan. Some I would try while others I am not so sure.
Here is one I am not sure I would like, Unagi Nobori or Surging Eel. It is a summertime drink. As the USA Today article states, it is mainly for men who want to cool off from the summer heat with a refreshing drink.
Here is another interesting food. A new variety of premium grapes called Ruby Roman. A bunch recently set a record for price when they were purchased by a Japanese hotel manager for $910 or about $26 per grape (2,860 Yen) (MSNBC). The grapes look like small tomatoes and have the same color. I would definately try one if it was offered. I wouldn't pay $26 for one though. The highest I would go is probably $1.
How much would you pay for a grape? And would you wash it down with some Unagi Nobori?
