Hungry for sushis? Get a lot more!

A fascinating documentary about Japanese culinary scene and its origins. I was hungry at every image and ordered japanese food right away!

Not only sushis....

Very interesting documentary, different vision on the Japanese food. I really enjoyed it...even more than "Jiro Dreams of Sushi", I believe! Must seen documentary on Sunday night :)


This is an amazing documentary … it’s more that just about food, it’s a gateway into whole other culture and way of life. Quite a humbling experience.
