probably my favorite dish. cold udon with eggplant.
delicate and simple "appetizers."
i forget what this dish was, but it was beautiful to look at.
sushi rolls ready to be cut and served.
this was at a restaurant called honmura-an (there used to be one in nyc). they are known for their soba (a type of noodle) and they make it from scratch every day. the process is a sight to see. painstakingly slow, unbelievable patience, beautiful to witness.
amazing knife, amazing precision.
the result: the freshest, best noodles you'll ever find.
