Open up your food palate, it's about to get real dirty! Na Quittez Pas in Tokyo put in the real dirty work when it started offering its patrons dishes like 'dirt soup', clams with a top layer of sediment, dirt ice cream, and other grimy offerings. At about $110 per person, is this just a dirty trick or earthy dining at its finest?

    I know my nan told me we have all got to eat a peck of dirt before we die, but I think this is going too far.

    I want to meet the honest person that has never eaten dirt. I would tell them to kiss my shirt because they have NEVER taken enough risk to have ever lived.......

    Why pay a ridiculous amount of money for dirty food??? You can eat that in your own kitchen...go play in the dirt and then instead of washing your hands and using utensils, dont wash your hands and eat with your fingers. People do it everyday, it doesn't make it healthy!!!

    Geophagy has been around for a long time and the Japanese people are pretty creative eaters anyway, so this doesn't surprise me.

    They ran out of good stuff, to sell at exorbitant prices, so they started selling dirt...

    Right now, there's a plethora of delicious things to choose from, why choose dirt unless there's nothing else to eat. I heard this dirt is not just any dirt but some sort of rich volcanic ashes loaded with minerals. I still would not eat it since there are better sources of minerals out there.

    Lemme see.....worm poop and slime; animal poop and pee; Anthrax; radioactivity; different flavours of vomit; blood from roadkill; spit from passersby; - well, at least if they're digging up old graves to capture the nutrients and minerals in the dirt it might be something to consider having as a side plate.

    I think I already do. After I remove from my diet everything that's bad for me and everything I don't like, dirt's about all that's left.

    For my personal taste, but I wouldn't judge others, as long as it is in the restaurant, don't go eating dirt elsewhere o_0

    Hey, if it tastes good enough to serve to customers, I think it sounds like a pretty cool thing to try!
  • Salonje 2013/01/31 01:56:46

    It just does not sound ok...plus what if there is a mix up, spill, or whatever...it seems like it can easily be contaminated.

    It is called Geophagy - Eating Dirt - and most common in the Southern US and Africa. Pregnant women eat clay from specified pits. The clays contain nutrients, like a multivitamin.
  • kir Ramón 2013/01/31 01:17:21
    Sadly very few people are aware of this and that is one reason why people have this kind of cultural reaction.
  • Fashion... Ramón 2013/01/31 07:08:56 (edited)
    You are right. If you troll the net, you'll be able to buy edible mineral clay. I'll take my multi vitamin first before I eat the clay though and I am a pretty adventurous eater. However, there are people out there who have weird eating habits, i.e., eating non food such as eating cardboard, eating any dirt, eating rocks, eating cement, eating their own hair, etc, there was a documentary about this a few months ago.
  • bettyboop Ramón 2013/01/31 12:15:25
    I have always heard it called pica. When I was pregnant I craved the frost from my freezer.

    Here in the USA when "dirt" dishes are served, it is usually crushed Oreos! What a difference a few thousand miles can make!

    Sedimentary rock looks tasty. I would not actually eat it due to the number of microorganisms it contains, but it does look appetizing. As a kid I tasted it (I think?)-- and it was a gritty experience.

    I have eaten diatomaceous earth that's a type of dirt.
  • Fashion... Robert ... 2013/01/31 07:10:34 (edited)
    You also use diatomaceous earth to kill bedbugs by desiccating them on contact.
