Would you eat a fish dog?

The Japanese are experts at serving up novel fish dishes. Kyoto Aquarium is bringing back its ayu dog, a whole (head to tail) sweetfish served in a soft hot dog bun.
Would you eat a fish dog?

Yao says "Eat the head"

During October 2014, Kyoto Aquarium will once again offer the ayu dog at its cafe.  This culinary creation debut last summer with relative success (up to 200 sandwiches served per day).  For ¥500 ($4.60 USD), you get a whole grilled ayu (AKA sweetfish or Plecoglossus altivelis for all you fish nerds) nestled in a sliced bun accompanied by garlic-flavored fried lotus chips and herbal shiso/obha leaf.

Beer sold separately.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
