Endangered Curry in a Can

There are many urban legends surrounding dodgy back street curry houses in the UK. Stories about pigeon masquerading as chicken, or cat as beef are rife. It is impossible to know if there’s any truth to these tales, but I recently discovered some Japanese curries that make no secret of their key ingredient.

It is well known that the Japanese controversially still eat whale. I exclusively revealed back in November’s edition, that they also were partial to a slice of bear. On the recent trip to Sapporo I can now add seal to the list, and even better still, I found that you can buy all three of these succulents meats in canned curry form!

So next time you're down your local Indian, feasting on a tikka masalla, be thankful that the range of possible rogue meats contained within is at least limited to wild birds and stray pets rather than bear, whale, or seal.

I purchased a can of bear, but it's still sitting on the shelf.
