Don’t eat cheap sushi


I love Japanese food. I used to spend my weekend hunting around Singapore looking for good Japanese restaurants. I am also pretty picky about Japanese food. Because Japanese food are often served raw, it taste horrible if it is little bit not fresh! Unfortunately, good Japanese food are also pretty expensive but I think they are worth it..

Now, there is one more reason why you should not eat cheap sushi (via Joiito).

Carbon monoxide, a gas that is also a component of wood smoke, prevents the flesh from discoloring. It can even turn chocolate tuna red, according to some who have seen the process…The Food and Drug Administration says the process is harmless. But Japan, Canada and the countries of the European Union have banned the practice because of fears that it could be used to mask spoiled fish.

Scarly isn’t it?
