Restaurant in Tokyo named Edible Brother serves up human flesh
Would you sit down to a human flesh dinner?

You might think a restaurant that sells human flesh would be some dystopian work of fiction – or at the very least illegal.
However there is actually a restaurant, named Edible Brother, that does serve up human flesh for humans to eat in Tokyo, according to Milenio.
Reports claim the restaurant is actually popular with tourists looking for a slice of Tokyo kitsch.
One tourist from Argentina claims human flesh tastes like pork but has a harder texture. However the tourist added that the toughness of the meat depends on which part of the body it has come from.
Thankfully all the meat comes from people who have authorised the sale of their body.
When those who have granted the authorisation die, their body also has to undergo a treatment in order to prevent it from deteriorating.
Each body is bought for roughly £27,000 and this is given to their family. But of course as you can imagine this means the meals in the restaurant are quite expensive.
It is in fact legal for human flesh to be sold in Japan as long as strict sanitary conditions are adhered to. So, if you’re one of those tourists who revels in the weird and the slightly unsavoury, now there’s a new item for your list.
