I know many of us likes our meat fresh, We cant deny meat,fish, and seafoods are delicious when they were fresh. But there is a restaurant in Taiwan and Japan, Thinks its a good Idea to prove what they serve is fresh they didnt kill the fish. I dont know but its like a sadistic dining experience. Its hard for me to explain it but restaurant number 1, serves sushi were the fish is still alive and its starring at you while you eat him/her: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Frf-1tNcdWg&feature=player_embedded But if you want your fish to be cooked, There is a restaurant that fries a living fish except from its head so its head will stay alive as you were eating its body: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BYPuLnAscA&feature=player_embedded In my case I prefer my fish to be fully killed before serving it in my table.

"cruelty free life to animals" Is my motto. I don't care if it some fish or some lobster alive, these animals are alive and suffering. I would love to put one of the bastar*s on the table alive and poke him/her with a fork and see how he/she likes it. A fish without war is like an asthma attack, well that's exactly how that fish is feeling right now.

I don't like to eat on something that is still alive. There was one time when I was a teenager, we were served cooked fish in a Korean restaurant. When my father was going to cut the fish meat to distribute them to us, the fish was alive, its tail is flapping and the fish mouth still moves. We were not dare to kill the fish so we can eat them. My father called the waiter and to throw the fish away. I also do not like to see animals killed infront of my eyes, it's just cruelty for me.

I actually killed animals for food before but I always make sure they will die fast because its the most respectful way to serve food.

It's enough that i see the fish i would like to eat as cooked , in an aquarium. No need for me to see him being butchered just to convince me that it was fresh. It's enough that the cooked food tastes delicious, because a stinking fish will taste different no matter how much condiments or seasoning was used to cook it. Those restaurants are so exaggerating, in my opinion.

Its kinda sick to see the food you are eating is moving in your plate. Its kinda fascinating though that they were able to keep a fish's head alive while frying. I dont like the idea of seeing an animal watching me as I eat him.

I cannot view those links to videos. I know that if I watch them I will start crying. It makes me sick to my stomach to even think about people eating animals alive. That is so horrible. They need to think about if we were in their place and someone was eating us alive how we would feel. I cant imagine a resturant being allowed to operate doing things lkike this. In the United States I dont think that would ever be allowed like it is in Taiwan and Japan.

There are actually restaurants that does it in united states, because people have no symphathy for fishes,since they dont have fur and their were not cuddly.
