If James Haskell were going to meet his maker, he would take with him a squid, a few prawns and some yellowtail fish.
That is just part of a massive final meal he would choose if he found himself on Death Row, he revealed in an exclusive video with FUEL.
“My Death Row meal would be salt and pepper squid with jalapenos, then a whole tasting menu from Nobu,” said the Wasps and England flanker.”
And the Japanese restaurant’s tasting menu is no quick snack. It comes with around eight separate courses and runs to about £100 a head.
“Tasting menu is yellow tail sashimi with jalapenos, popcorn prawns, prawn tempura, vegetable tempura, different varieties of sushi roll, the amazing wagyu beef they have in their special sauce – can’t think of anything else that springs to mind. No, that’ll be it.”
And how do you follow that? Simple, with a classic dessert that has a twist in the tail.
“…sticky-toffee pudding,” he adds with a grin “…and gravy.”
