Very Scary Sushi
A chilling account of a sushi house haunted by something other than ghosts….
I like to experience food adventures vicariously through various food blogs. When I’m in the mood for a bit of humor, I enjoy reading the adventures of Adam D. Roberts, mastermind of The Amateur Gourmet blog. His sense of humor makes it hard to envision that he was once a serious law student before following his heart and stomach to NYC. Adam’s site features recipes, musings, restaurant reviews, food videos, original songs about food and more.
Awhile back, I was perusing the pages of Adam’s blog and ran across an image that sent chills down my spine. Let me just say that I’ve never been a fan of horror. Anything remotely terrifying sticks with me for weeks and induces me to sleep with the lights on at night. As a sushi chef, this image was one of the scariest I’ve ever seen. And the title of the post, “My Worst Restaurant Experience Ever”, could very well have been the title of the latest horror film. So with one hand covering my eyes and the other slowly scrolling down the page, I read (between my fingers) his very scary account. I gave several audible cries near the end and have yet to get past the feeling that my skin is still crawling.
Here is Adam’s very scary sushi account:
