Tonight, following the season premiere of Z Nation, it’s the season 2 finale of Dark Matter.
This episode changes everything. Trust me. Fans are going to be feeling passionate after this one.
And, while you’re all watching Dark Matter, I’ll be continuing my Tokyo travels.
Yesterday, we took the shinkansen from Osaka (arriving in a lightning 2.5 hours). Check out the view outside the window…
We did a lot more walking, this time through Roppongi, before finally ending up at our very favorite sushi restaurant in the world: Sushisho Masa. Now, the thing that differentiates Sushisho Masa from every other high end omakase sushi restaurant is the sheer inventiveness and variety of sushi. All other places will serve a set number of pieces of nigiri, between 12 to 18, all usually top quality and fantastic. Masa, on the other hand, serves roughly 40 sushi bites, ranging from the grilled octopus shirako to melt-in-your-mouth tuna nigiri. Last time we visited, Akemi could barely walk after her meal. This time, she asked for the “josei portion” and, while she did leave the restaurant feeling full, she only insisted on an hour long post-meal walk.
Some of the highlights:
Masa-san does something I’m never seen any other sushi chef do. Before serving o-toro, the prized, highly marbled top end tuna belly, he carefully trims the paper thing individual fat layers. He claims this results in a much more pleasurable taste and textural experience. I’d have to agree.
Masa-san and part of his team. ’til next year!
Well, I’m off to the Tsukiji Market. If I have time, be prepared for a live Periscope!
