At long last, the Tokyo episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern — featuring La Carmina as his guide to weird theme restaurants — has aired! Huge thanks to the crew for having me on the show, and to all of you who tuned in. I’m glad you enjoyed our bloody dining adventure.

What, you missed the Travel Channel premiere? Wipe those tears away: I’ve posted the clip below and on my YouTube channel.

Harajuku “fashion author and blogger” La Carmina brings Andrew Zimmern to Tokyo’s strangest theme restaurant, Alcatraz ER, on Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods TV show. She and her Goth friends drink red slush out of a mannequin’s head and eat “Russian Roulette” takoyaki behind the bars a jail cell. You can read/see more of the horror mental hospital cafe in La Carmina’s book Crazy Wacky Theme Restaurants: Tokyo (Mark Batty, Random House).

We shot my title sequence in Shibuya, shortly after I met up with Zimmern at the Hachiko dog statue. People were staring as I strutted around and blew kisses to the camera…

Mistress Maya wasn’t grossed out by the “bedpan of beer.” I think she drank most of it straight!

My fashionable Tokyo spooks joined me for the shoot. Andrew Zimmern and the film crew were very nice to us all. (I wrote about the experience in my CNNGo article here.)

What’s more disturbing: pumping a syringe of red head goop into your mouth, or a pink Cheshire Cat eating pizza with chopsticks?

    I’ll be quite honest by saying that if I had a syringe filled with a drink, I would be very tempted in trying to shoot that drink into someone’s mouth. Who says you can’t play with your food once in a while haha?!

    Oh and as for my favorite part…- DEFINITELY RUSSIAN ROULETTE! I would love to play that game all day!

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      Hahah! There was also a vibrating dildo that we used to mix a drink…

      • http://www.myspace.com/shadowpal2 shadowpal2

    Thank you for posting the clip! I had to teach at the same time, so I wasn’t able to watch it on TV. Loved how it came out those. I remember hearing about that place on the Tokyology TV DVD. So it was cool to see a different perspective on the place.

    • http://www.lacarmina.com lacarmina

      Blarrgh I don’t have a good vibe from Tokyology… saw a preview of the DVD. Seems like the host is usually an LA entertainment bimbo type and doesn’t really take part in the subcultures she’s trying to showcase… >__<
