Fresh off a Salmonella outbreak that sickened at least 425, Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi figured they’d dip into the lucrative food porn pool and start offering sushi served on naked men and women to the tune of $500 per “human platter” last month.
They discovered that if you put wasabi on your nipples, they’ll burn for a week.
“There’s a lot of things you don’t think about when it comes to naked sushi,” restaurant owner Nathan Lieberman told ABCNews.com. “Now, we put plastic over the nipples, like Saran, and then we cover the nipples in wasabi.”
Lieberman said naked sushi was the brainchild of Chef Glenn Lopez, who works in the kitchen. Lieberman figured the Japanese have been dining off naked bodies for “thousands of years” and wanted to give his patrons “the royal treatment” for Miami Spice, the city’s restaurant month, he said.
Initially, Lieberman said he was going to hire models from a modeling agency, but his servers begged him for the job.
Kung Fu’s most recent restaurant inspection occurred in May and included seven critical violations – one of them being a lack of soap for handwashing.
