Oh yes, lovely. One ambulance-inducing amphibian in a bun, please

A battered frog burger. Does this idea really have legs?

What better, after a nice wander round a museum, than a nice burger in the cafe. What's that? Oh yeah. I said burger, but I meant battered poisonous frog.

 

That's currently what's on offer at Orbi Yokohama, a nature museum in south Tokyo, who have just launched their Deadly Poison Exhibition. You can wander round and admire 25 different species of poisonous animals, and then eat one in the cafe.

The special "frog menu" features a very sorry frog with his legs dangling out the side of a black bun dyed with bamboo charcoal. If that's not your thing, dessert is "frog egg sweet", a tragic (but yummy!) depiction of a frog guarding its spawn. Luckily this one is just made out of jelly and almond tofu.

Last year the museum launched the Blue Burger, a fairly fabulous (if riddled with food colouring) chicken burger which looks not only just like our very own planet Earth, but also slightly more appetising than poor old Mr Frog.
