Comment of the Day

Today Mai Pham wrote about an awesome meal she had at Azuma Kirby, which included Live Lobster Sashimi. Commenter Laurie didn't see why the dish was prepared this way:

I enjoy sushi on a regular basis, but I am under the assumption that the raw fish I am eating is killed quickly and humanely. This presentation just seems unnecessary. Would it not be as delicious if it was killed in the back and then presented to you?

I have to admit, the dish makes me squirm, too. What about the rest of you? Will you be ordering Live Lobster Sashimi?
