STOMPer Minzy was disturbed by an online video which shows how this super-fresh frog sashimi was actually prepared in front of the customer while the frog was still alive. She felt that this is an extreme act of cruelty to animals.
In the video, the frog is kept alive in a kitchen until someone places an order. The frog is then stabbed by the chef's knife and stripped clean of its inedible innards. However, the frog can be seen twitching and its eyes blinking while served on an iced platter. After the sashimi bits are taken off, the rest of the frog is simmered to make a soup.
The frogs used in this dish are bullfrogs raised specifically for cooking and therefore safe and delish. The restaurant reportedly ships in only about five frogs per day.

"I feel sick watching how the woman could still smile and eat the sashimi while the frog was looking at her.
"I love to eat frog porridge, especially frog legs! I'm fine with eating raw food but I definitely wouldn't want to see the frogs still twitching around on my plate and eventually die before my eyes.
"The poor frog in the video is being tortured alive and made to watch its own innards get ripped and placed on a serving platter. How cruel is that?"
