jiro dreams of sushi

Last weekend, I went to see the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi at the TIFF Bell Lightbox theatre. It tells the story of 85-year-old Sukiyabashi Jiro, whose 10-stool sushi restaurant in a Tokyo subway station earned three Michelin stars and has devoted patrons willing to shell out hundreds of dollars for a plate of his sushi. Watching somebody so obsessed and devoted to his trade was intense, but also admirable. I left the theatre dreaming of Jiro's sushi and longing for a trip to Japan.
