I'm not a Fugu virgin, but my cousin was an really wanted to try fugu, so we found Torafugutei, and we were not dissapointed.
I've generally only had Fugu Nabe, i've never had fugu sashimi or fugu infused sake, so the experience was very novel to me. We ordered the general Fugu course (it had fugu sashimi, cold fugu salad, fugu karaage, and fugu nabe), would have liked to try the shirako, but it wasn't available at the time. the nabe was cooked right in front of you at the table (fyi, if you're squeemish, don't look at the pieces of fugu when it arrives at the table because it'll still be breathing). once the nabe was finished, they brought cooked rice and egg to the table and we had a nice okayu course. at the end, we rounded everything out with a nice fugu sake (it tasted like nicely warmed sake with just a touch of dried fish at the end).
It was a novel experience and one that you have to do if you go to japan.
Fyi. Despite the hype, fugu dosen't taste all that different from any other delicate white fleshed fish. they say you feel tingling...but if you do feel tingling you better get yourself to the hospital and on a respirator stat.
