Raw Horseflesh Ice Cream: Tokyo Surely not, right? The Japanese are an adventurous lot when it comes to their treats, and ice cream is no different. “Basashi Vanilla,” which contains chunks of horseflesh sushi. It Tastes: Like vanilla & something very chewy. It’s been described as a little sweet, but sweet in the venison way. At Ice Cream City, you can sample a dazzling (or horrifying) array of flavors, from octopus & snake to gyu tan, or cow-tongue sorbet.
