> despite the presence of "research whale" on the menu

you weren't kidding! there are about 6 "research whale" options directly above your head..
incidentally, have you ever tried it? (i'm not suggesting it..)
i did have it once at an izakaya in shizuoka -- not something we ordered; it was just brought to our table without a word, a little dish of sashimi -- and none of the others, all japanese, recognized it. the consensus descriptions of the taste, echoed about 5 times as it made its way around the table, were "mazui" and "tastes kind of like butter." we had to ask what it was, and that's when they told us it was whale..

It takes like liver. Kind of makes me want to throw up, to be honest.

have never had liver actually.. but if it tastes like whale, i guess i'll skip it too. (though looking at that wall menu again, i think i might be curious to try the ¥250 eel liver if i find myself in Ajitome!)
