For a gourmet meal like nothing you have ever tried before, go to French restaurant Ne Quittez Pas, in Tokyo, Japan, and try some of their delectable dirt dishes.

This isn't some run-down restaurant that gets dirt in all the food, but a fancy gourmet restaurant that purposefully uses dirt as an ingredient in some of its most expensive menu items. With dishes that include dirt risotto, salad with dirt dressing, dirt soup, dirt gratin and dirt ice-cream, this restaurant is an earthy yet delectably epicurean taste experience that you won’t find anywhere else.

The award-winning chef Toshio Tanabe once won a food competition with his special dirt sauce, which inspired him to open up a restaurant that served a menu full of different types of dirt dishes. Stats for Grime-Filled Gourmet Meals Trending: Older & Warm
