A new trend in high-end Japanese food is bringing customers closer to nature.

Acclaimed chef Yoshihiro Narisawa is known for his signature dish, soup of the soil. It's made by chopping up burdock root, pan-frying it with dirt, then simmering and straining the resulting mixture. It's heated without any additional salt or seasoning. The idea is to give customers a true taste of the earth.

Narisawa's restaurant won the top spot in Asia's 50 best restaurants awards this year.
