If you’re one of Japan’s most popular porn stars, naturally your next career move has to be in the food industry. That’s exactly what Ken Shimizu set out to do when he opened Curry Shop Shimizu. The Tokyo-based eatery will now and forever be known as the spot that serves poop-flavored curry.
CNN got a sneak peek at the curry shop and says the purpose of the place is to “Satisfy an unlikely lifelong desire to find out what excrement tastes like.”
Yep, because that’s what we dream of accomplishing with our taste buds.
While not actual poop, the curry purposely mimics the texture and flavor of human excrement. Ingredients include fish, bitter tea, cocoa butter and other pungent additions. Pretty much it’s brown, runny and smells terribly.
Shimizu, under the screen name Shimiken, allegedly began his adult film career eating feces on camera. Sources say he ate the feces of more than 250 people, unofficially qualifying him as an authority on how poop should taste.
Since it’s opening in August, the restaurant has garnered a following of regulars that frequent the curry house. Also, of the first 300 visitors to the restaurant, 90 percent had finished their poo curry.
