Yes, it's very popular here in Japan as well, including raw as sashimi (basashi):It is not my favorite but I like it sometimes.
Raw? Oh really?
Yes, very popular here for sushi and sashimi. Also raw beef (gyuusashi, my personal favorite):Cooked variations are also popular, of course. For horse meat, I like cooked dishes better. For beef, I love both raw and cooked.
Frog and snake meat is also somewhat popular here (not raw though). Also alligator meat (and sometimes raw in that case). Actually, raw alligator is also maybe one of my favorites, although it is rare and expensive. It is very chewy.
Your country food culture looks very different and interesting , we're just eating camels and horses and they're all cooked
I never tried camel -- I would like to try though. :-D In Japan often a lot of animals that are around are eaten (the exception being dogs and cats since Japanese love those as pets), and all parts of the animal including organs like heart and liver.
Also some insects like crickets:
Certainly a different taste and stomach tolerance seems very high 😄
Japanese love alcohol a lot -- often mixing drinking and eating together at the same time (Izakaya style). So very popular here tend to be foods that are heavily seasoned and go together with heavy alcohol. :-D
Oh what is the mean Izakaya? So when people drink heavy alcohol and get too drunk and losing ownself , they eat these?
It is a type of dinner restaurant or tavern that generally mixes heavy drinking with eating dinner. On top of the drinking, friends and colleagues tend to go and share all the food (lots of small dishes to sample) while ordering half the menu, then split bill evenly at the end.It is very fun to go with friends -- drink and sample all kinds of foods. I went to the US for high school and university and some time after for work though, and I got used to American style. So sometimes when I'm at Izakaya, they have something I love on the menu like pizza and I don't want to share with anyone else... like "Don't touch my pizza! You guys order your own! This one's all mine!" :-D
Oh , I understand now , Im agree , he or she can eat faster than you and eat more than you can , that's not equal, It seems that this does not include sharing and tolerance but in my opinion , It's a correct decision ✊🏻
I just get very stingy when it's my favorite food. :-D Also kind of dangerous but common tradition with Izakaya is nomihoudai (all-you-can-drink). It is like an all-you-can-eat buffet but all-you-can-drink. It's a set fee like maybe $20 for 2 hours and you can order as many drinks as you want in that time.
Woaaw looks so good but don't restaurants get loss by that?
If they drink like me and my friends did, I don't see how they could make money from the sales of liquor. But I think they make up for it with the food and the fact that lots of Japanese people are lightweight drinkers. They tend to get drunk quickly after a few drinks. My friends and I were kind of heavyweights though, so we probably irritated the staff with how many drinks we ordered.
I think normal Japanese person orders maybe 3-4 drinks in that 2-hour timespan. We ordered like 25 and were drinking them in one shot -- "SHOT SHOT SHOT!" :-D The staff did give us dirty looks often while we ordered another and another. But it's an effective business strategy overall, I think, provided not all the customers are like us.
Woaaah Your and your friend stomach tolerance and body strength are very high , The staff doesn't like you very much, and they may be curse you , When he sees you on the road, he'il drive the car over you 😄
Have an opinion?
I have several times. It is much redder in color than beef meat for example.However, once you know how horses are mistreated in the USA and sent to Canada for killing and processing, you will never want to eat horse meat again.In Western Europe, the animal dignity rights are much more severe than in the US and you can consume horse meat in Europe with a much better conscience than in the US.But again, like for everything else, there are exceptions to the rule.
It's illegal in Canada to sell horse meat for human consumption as a high number of the horses slaughtered for meat are washed up old race horses and they've been pumped full of all kinds of drugs all of their lives. We do export a lot of horse meat to Europe and Asia where they don't seem to mind eating drug contaminated meat.
The people in my country makes horse the production at themselves. If there were old race horses, we'd be dead by now.
I’ve never had it but I wouldn’t be against trying it
Also I think it’s illegal here, so I’d have to travel to try it
Oh why illegal?
It’s just very frowned upon. Sort of like dog meat. A lot of people here love horses, and we have very large sanctuaries for horses and such, so it’s just seen as very barbaric to eat them here
Oh I see *-*
No. I have horse as a pet. I don't think I would like for it to be served as a meal
We dont eat pets horses already *-*
I know, just caricaturing
Yes, in France, they sell it as steak in their Restaurants, you don't know until you get it, it is sweeter than beef.
Oh I hear this first time *-*
Fuck no, why would I ever eat horse meat? It's not even sold here for fuck sake
Oh how I can know this , I just ask 😑
What about hamburgerkött?
@NovissimumVirorum that's made out of cow meat... ALWAYS.
Google says horse too
Google is wrong... Always cow meat...
I svensk handel förekommer hästkött vanligen som rökt och skivat smörgåspålägg (hamburgerkött) eller som ingrediens i vissa korvar som exempelvis medvurst och prickig korv. Större delen av det hästkött som säljs i den svenska dagligvaruhandeln importeras från Sydamerika. Av etiska skäl väljer många svenska hästägare att avliva hästarna på gården istället för att skicka dem till slakt. Kött från inhemska hästar blir ofta djurfoder för katter och hundar, medan avfallet brukar skickas till en uppsamlingsplats.
Not knowingly lol. But I've no objection if it's properly labeled.
Not knowingly but there was that thing with tesco a few years back so who knows
Can't you distinguish between the taste of meat?
Well I don't know what horse meat is meant to taste like. There was a thing a few years ago where Tesco (a supermarket in the UK) was selling food that was supposed to contain beef but there was horse meat mixed in with it. So it would have been difficult to tell if it was there.
Yes. Quite normal in my country aswell. And whale.
Oh It's so good this not being seen as a illegal in your country 😄
No. We get it as a sausage aswell to but on the bread for breakfast. Directly translated "horse sausage" It is quite normal in Nordic Scandinavia.
Oh I hear this first time, wooaaw so good *-*
Tbh. Did not know it was illegal in some countries. Mongolian use horses for everything. And is the most used animal. at least earlier, with their big tents, meat, get around etc. Still used a lot there by the nomads that do keep to the old tradition.
The eat of horses is very barbaric for some countries and is forbidden to eat them , I think they shouldn't eat any animals 🤔
I think they should. It is a way of nature. But don't like how much wasted meat or food in general there is all around.And prefer if it all was done in a human nature and the animal had a good life.Do bot like the big consume and throw society that it all have become. Not only by food, but by everything.
We dont eat horse sausage inte Scandinavia wtf? I live in the same town to one of the most popular Swedish sausage makers in Sweden and they dont make a single product made with horse meat

Remember it is a long tradition in both Norway and Sweden with "spekemat" and "spekepølse" And that usaly go under all kind of meat you can salt to death. In there you usaly also get horse.
But horses used to be well kept for riding and transport ages ago and not for eating coz small horse population here in Sweden so you usually dint use the horse as food. So its not that common.
I love horse meat, tastes great.
Oh I agree 😄
I have relatives in Kasachstan and they make amazing dishes with horse meat.
Oh this looks so good *-*
Yes. It’s delicious
Hha why 😄
It's not sold at Walmart lol 😂🤣
Oh I understand 😄😄
Oh , you dont like it? or not try yet?
No one really sells horse meat in the USA so it's not something Americans typically eat. You could probably find it somewhere if you look hard enough, but it’s not common place.
Yes, it's delicious.
I did. It is delicious!
Tf is in that cup
Not yet, but so curious to try it
Im sure , you will like *-*

Most horse meat is produced in China. They produce 170,000 tons of horse meat a year.

You can find horse meat in Tunisia. They produce 539 tons of horse meat a year.
