Remember when you were a kid and made mud pies?  Well apparently if you would have left them dry you could be making a fortune in Japan.

Ne Quittez Pas, a Southern France-inspired restaurant in Japan, is charging $110 for a dish who’s main ingredient is dirt.

The menu includes a potato starch and dirt soup, a salad with dirt dressing, sea bass with dirt risotto, dirt gratin, dirt ice cream and dirt mint tea.

This isn’t a gimmicky restaurant either.  Ne Quittez Pas opened in 1994 by French trained chef Toshio Tanabe and has worked at some of top restaurants to receive Michelin Stars.

The dirt is all tested for safety before it is shipped from Sri Lanka and India to the restaurant.
