So incredibly poisonous that even a small mistake in its preparation can be fatal, fugu (pufferfish) is also a luxurious delicacy.
If you’re curious enough to have a try, check out Guenpin Fugu.
Japan’s largest fugu chain has opened its first overseas outlet in Singapore and its chef, Tomita, boasts over 30 years of fugu cuisine under his belt.
The restaurant prides itself on serving the highest grade of fugu — the Tiger Puffer Fish, or torafugu in Japanese.
Rich in protein and collagen, torafugu helps to retain skin elasticity.
Here are six dishes to try, if you’re game enough.
