              That broth though. I don't give a damn about the shark fin. Give me the recipe for that broth and I'll make the most delicious steak sauce, soup or ramen soup I'll ever taste.

                  Chinese here. We have a shit ton of great cuisine with an assortment of great flavors. I really don't understand why people are so bent focused on eating the one food that is harming an endangered animal and breaking the ecosystem. Hell. Ramsay even said himself that the soup have no taste.

                                    I will tell you why. I'm a Chinese too. For your information, Chinese like to show off. They wanna show how wealth or happy they are. Besides,majority of them look down on people who are not really lucky to have a happy life. They know that shark fins are really expensive. Although it is tasteless but they willing to pay it to make them proud. In their mind, "Wow, I'm so proud of myself, even an expensive tasteless food I can afford it". Any Chinese read this please don't misunderstand. This is just for the "majority",some people don't eat the real one. Some Chinese use the man-made shark fins, not the real shark and it's tasty

                                      If Gordon is against Shark Fin soup, why bother eating it? To see if it's delicious or not? LOL. If it was delicious, would he have think twice about protesting? Pointless.

                                            People are fucked!!! Gordon Ramsay did a great job with this documentary HOWEVER; to have such a hard stance on shark-fin soup yet be totally fine with force feeding ducks and goose for Foie Graa seems kinda hypocritical to me

                                              And plus, Shark fin soup has more MEANING than flavor. its eating the meaning, not its floavor

                                                    I had a similar feeling with pig brain soup in Taiwan, it sounds gross but actually just tastes like water, very bland and boring. There are many WAY more interesting and exciting Taiwanese dishes he could have tried. Hope he comes back to Taiwan in the future. Also the VIP area he was trying to get in had one of the richest people in Taiwan sitting there who also ran for President.

It just tells how uneducated and dumb you are. Shark population has been dwindling and all people care about is texture, colour and taste of their food.

What I want to say they should make it more better than people expected if desired to eat such extincting animals body part. But still not encourage to eat shark fin

Can we just chop off your hands and see if you can survive??? Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

It was normally based on the region, most Asians will eat not only the fin but the whole shark. Shark Sashimi is a really common dish in Asia, Asians don't like wasting food.

Honestly, shark meat is really hella good, everyone likes it. People rather eat the meat than the fins...

Another problem is that all these people who decry about shark fin are mostly liberals who then suddenly forget about respecting "diversity". I guess diversity is not that important when it infringes on your values. Now that being said, I personally do not agree with the practice of wasting natural resources and killing sharks simply because of a delicacy. there's plenty of good food to go around.

Like a typical white dude, who said shark fin soup tastes like nothing, it's really the texture that is unique. Non Asians are inferior when it comes to appreciate the complexities of texture of food. Also, shark fin soup flavor is supposed to mild, befitting the elegant subtleties that it originally was intended for the rich mercantile class who are the ones who can afford it. that said, killing shark and wasting all the meat just for the fins are wasteful. Much like the buffaloes were hunted almost to extinction in N America because of the beef tongue soup back in the 1880's. And that Taiwanese waiter is a wimp. It was lucky for GR that the guest he disturbed is not one of the underground bosses. He would have ended up in a hospital. How would GR like to have some Asian dude in T shirt interrupt his guests at one of his overrated 3* Michelin restaurants? other than that, I see nothing wrong to eat shark fin soup. It's no different than tuna. It is very good, actually.

Im not some Vegan & Im a hunter so Im not some PETA fanatic... But all the sharks that are killed strictly for their fins for this fucking soup that really has no taste... Honestly what a shame... At least Deer, Pork, etc tastes good!
