Bear Claw Soup?

I was browsing Fu Lam Moon's tabelog entry yesterday and came across a picture of a bear claw:

I've heard of this dish, but didn't know it was ever still served at restaurants. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it a joke? Is it a special-order item? Does anyone know a ball-park price range and how many people it serves?

  1. You can get bear dishes at several restaurants in Tokyo, for example Matagi and La Chasse, I'm not sure if Boucherie Du Buppa has it too, so there's no a priori reason why they wouldn't serve claw soup (although it seems on the hairy side :) ).

    1. I don't often see news stories on bear paw. this article would price black-market wild brown bear paws from russia at $2150usd each...

      1. Damn. I thought this was a soup made out of donuts.
