The best value beer in town

Written by Stuart Revnell No Gravatar

This evening we found a bar which offers you a ‘fish massage’ by none other than the ‘fish doctor’. Click on the video and you can see that this intriguing proposition involved sitting with your feet in a tank, while a load of fish nibble at your feet. It’s a bizarre sensation, and, whilst my initial reaction was to get my feet out of there as quickly as I could, it became quite pleasant after a while.

What’s more, the $3 charge gets you two decent sized draft beers, and a quick back rub too. Jane was going to push her luck and see if she could get upgraded to a nice glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc if she skipped the back rub, but I convinced her that we were on to a good deal, so she sunk a couple of beers and let the fish get on with it.

This is by far one of the best value experiences I’ve had on the whole trip so far. Remind me again why I pay the best part of £9 in my local pub for two pints and a packet of Kettle Chips…

    The fish pedicure has caught on here too – despite concerns about transmitting infection!! Will reply to your e mail later in the week.

    We did this in Japan and it’s nuts, isn’t it? I hated it as it reminded me too much of a horror film – Pirhana – seeing all those fish swarming around your feet.

    As Sarah said, the craze is taking off over here too now. In fact, when I went home last month, you could even have a session in the departure lounge of Belfast International Airport. Obviously not quite as glamorous an experience as yours but you I suppose you could always much on a giant toblerone from duty free while you get it done.

      You can tell you’re definitely pregnant, when “a session in the departure lounge of Belfast International Airport” means munching on a Toblerone witn your feet in a tank of fish”!!
