Have enjoyed your videos for many years. I recently went to my local cheap and affordable sushi place alone. They had some new flavors. There was one that was so amazing, like a parade of flavors in my mouth, I wanted to run around the restaurant and tell everyone they MUST order it. I held back, but soooooo goood! If I were there with someone, I’m certain I’d be making the same faces and mmmmm sounds!

I don know why but something abt Japanese fascinates me. Seeing them putting their heart and soul in whatever work they do is rare to found these days . They are so disciplined and dedicated that I am always inspired to do more and reach that state of satisfaction in my work…

Leo and Grace says:

Can’t the hosts act natural? This over acting ruined what could have been a masterpiece.

Aging a tuna perhaps is vital, it is tasty, but eating tuna is bad as fuck

In a nutshell… Saito would never serve “bad” fish to his customers because all his skills/ time to prepare the fish for his customers would be spoiled by knowing that it’s bad fish.

Nobody in McDonalds is “paid” to care whether their fish filet is of any quality but “to look similar” than on the picture that is shown to the customer.

There are plenty of great chefs/ restaurants across the world that care greatly for their customers but with the rise of fast food chains and the demand of quantity over quality.. it has been difficult but for a few outstanding places to really stay atop of the fray. I wished for everyone to pay due to the skill it takes to prepare food as well as for the cooks/ people preparing to care for their craft.

Loved the video… didn’t know the two but it was a bit irritating to see Simon eat his first by hand. A missed opportunity to appreciate the care and precision Saito put into the preparation. This is kinda how you eat chips… not world class sushi.

I’m verry happy that they make effort to understand our culture. They and I have a difference but we are same, we are human. Then, I want to understand their culture.
