Fried minke whale

The BBC reports on the latest innovation in Japanese fast food technology from Hakodate based Lucky Pierrot, winner of a gold prize from the Hamburger Lovers Association . I gather minke whale sits somewhere between beef and fish on the taste and texture scale (hat tip to the Jawa Report).

A restaurant in Japan has added a rather unusual snack to its menu - it's selling whale burgers. The burgers are made from minke whale and they're served in a bun at the Lucky Pierrot fast food joint..

Well, if it tastes like a mix of beef and fish, maybe it is? As far as I know, whale meat is expensive in Japan, so there must be a temptation to fake it.

I think beef mixed with seagull would make a more convincing imitation. (But if you tell people what you use, I'd recommend guillemot, rather than gull.)
