TOKYO (NBC/EBU) - A new trend in high-end Japanese food is bringing customers closer to nature.
Acclaimed Chef Yoshihiro Narisawa is known for his signature dish: soup of the soil.
It's made by chopping up burdock root, pan-frying it with dirt, then simmering and straining the resulting mixture.
It's heated without any additional salt or seasoning.
The idea is to give customers a true taste of the earth.
Narisawa's restaurant won the top spot in Asia's 50 Best Restaurants awards this year.
