The Sushi Chef: Shark Hearts & Fish Sperm with Yoya Takahashi

NEW VIDEO: How to Eat a Polar Bear:

Yoya Takahashi once dreamt of following in his grandfather’s footsteps and becoming an actor. These days, the Executive Sushi Chef of Hamasaku has realized a different Hollywood dream with starlets (and execs) coming in for power lunches at his sushi bar in a nondescript strip mall in West LA. Takahashi takes his “art” very seriously, but that hasn’t stopped him from experimenting with nontraditional ingredients—fish sperm sushi, anyone?

Sharks are near risk of exinction because of Japan’s overfishing. Since they are the most importants predators in oceans, it’s an ecologic disaster. I love japan culture, but he should be stopped.
