I pressed the "Publish Post" button on my latest entry right before I went down to dinner. It was definitely a moment too soon because in fact, I got served red meat tonight. Really really red meat.
And I know that this was from a cow because I am pretty sure I heard it mooo on my plate.
If you haven't figured it out yet, I ate raw beef for dinner tonight.
Yes, RAW beef.
I think it might be called steak tattae. I don't really know, I just know it was cold, raw and bloody.
I didn't think so. I did try it because I feel too rude to ever refuse, but I didn't take any more than my little piece and instead I filled myself up on bread. I probably won't be trying it again, because even though it might have been tasty, I couldn't tell because my brain was kicking my taste buds in the head every time I ate another bite. I guess what I am saying is that I could not get over the fact that is was raw...even if they assure me it is safe...I just can't afford stomach problems right now!?! I have a castle to see tomorrow!
So...what's your thoughts...have you ever ate raw beef? Should I have been more open? Is it safe? Is it really as delicous as my host family says?
Oh and I definitely will not be complaining about eating so much fish ever again!
