Pescanova liquidating pushes Turbot prices down.

 

Pescanova (the source of my Avatar) turned out to be a massive accounting fraud - turned out their Turbot farms didn't really work - or one of them didn't - and they had tons of hidden debt from trying to build out Salmon farming in Chile.  In the last few months the restructuring finally happened and I guess they decided to liquidate fish to generate cash.

Finally Chambo has figured out where it's at.

Correct.

Merci.

 

Finally Chambo has figured out where it's at. 

 

Chambo's a slow learner ... but he does learn.

 

That Virrey, by the way ...

 

That's a nice fish, Mr. Madrileno !

 

... 1.7kg, but priced at 1kg.

 

But I bet it was farmed !

I also decided that I was obsessed with getting to the bottom of whether the sushi in Japan was better than the sushi in the U.S

 

 

to think that i was able to get to the bottom of this without going to tokyo.


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

Is that a piece of fish or a whole fish?

This is what amazed me most of all:

 

In terms of the specific restaurants I ate in, Sukibayashi Jiro Roppongi was head and shoulders above the rest.

Sometimes I talk to clueless people who say things like, I am going to got to Tokyo and just eat so much sushi, and I say gently, well you know sushi is just one tiny sliver of Japanese food, and you should try some of the others.

I had a farmed turbot today that was utterly remarkable for having absolutely no taste at all.
