So, this week’s Food Adventure Program is a bit shorter than usual. We planned on filming something else, but realized that we had some nice looking footage from a night out we had with friends, and even though it’s not our regular kind of video, we still wanted to share it. I hope you find it as pretty as we found it delicious!
If you’ve been with us for a while, you might remember last year when we spent A Week in Punta Cana for our friend’s wedding. Well, their one year anniversary was coming up, and they were in Tokyo visiting, so we all went for Sushi Kanesaka. We’ve never been before, but a friend of ours who eats at the best places in Japan highly recommended it. I’m glad we trusted him, because this place was AMAZING!
It’s not like the place we went to for the Best Sushi in Japan. Well, it is a sushi place, of course, and a really good one at that, but it has some differences. That place, for starters, wasn’t Michelin Starred, I don’t think. It did, however, serve more food. We ate until we couldn’t eat anymore. At this place, we were not overwhelmingly stuffed, which is a good thing, I think. Also, there were no pieces that I didn’t like here, while the first place we went to, while still overwhelmingly amazing, had a couple of pieces that I could have done without. This place, though, was just perfect start to finish. I’ll say, though, that this felt like less of a magical experience. The first place we went to was a lot quieter, and everyone working there seemed very reverential. At this place, the chef was laughing, had a great attitude, and made some jokes. We asked him how long until the chefs in the back can start cutting fish, and he said 100 years. We all had a good laugh at that.
The prices were both pretty steep. The first place we went to was $250 a person, while this place was $300 a person. Yep. $300 a person. It’s not something we could eat regularly, I don’t think, not just because we’d go broke, but because having a meal like this is something you remember for the rest of your life. You cherish it. If you have it regularly, it’s no longer special to you. These two sushi places we’ll remember forever, while a sushi train place we might not keep as dearly in our hearts.
Also, this place had a customer that just would not shut the fuck up about Bernie Sanders. This girl walked in talking, and talked at her two friends for two hours straight and I swear I don’t even know if she ate anything or if she did she must be a ventriloquist because how can you chew and swallow and never stop talking. And I like Bernie Sanders and would vote for him if I was American but gottamn it I can’t listen about him for that long sweet mercy! That’s why a lot of the video was muted. The first place, on the other hand, did not have such an arse talking the whole time.
So that’s it for this small video! I hope you liked it. We’re heading off for our first travel video in Japan over the weekend. Exciting! Now to get to packing for it :D
