Whitney has been telling us about Jiro Ono ever since she and Fredrick decided to live in Japan. Jiro is an 85 year old sushi master and owner of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a Michelin three-star restaurant. It’s the most expensive restaurant in the world because it costs 30,000 yen ($300) per person for a 30 minute meal.
Why am I telling you all this?
It still amazes me that all I have to do is “Google” the name “Jiro Ono,” and everything I want to know about the restauranteur pops up. I will never get over that. I can get instant access to all of the information I need to know so I can appreciate Whitney and Fredrick’s sensational experience.
Master chefs from all other world agree that Jiro’s has the best sushi you can ever eat. There is month wait for a reservation. Of course, Whitney and Fredrick nailed one and they said the experience was absolutely thrilling. Hence, the above picture.
Whitney told us that there was a documentary made about Jiro, so once again, we had electronic access to his life story. “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” a 2011 documentary film totally profiles Jiro. We learned that Sukiyabashi Jiro is a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station. Jiro serves a tasting menu of roughly 20 courses. No menu. You eat what you are served.
And I bet sushi lovers everywhere would love every morsel served to them. I definitely would.
