Jiro Dreams of Sushi!!

Has anyone watched this yet. Anyone with a love of food, and a passion for working in the restaurant industry will be blown away by this movie. It really was inspirational, and the food, and cinematography used to show the great details of it was amazing. Its playing at tinseltown right now.

I might go see it tonight. I predict that someone is going to find me passed out behind a dumpster Tuesday, covered in sake and otoro because this is going to make me so nostalgic for Tokyo.

Just got out. Oh man, this movie is awesome...especially if you absolutely love sushi and Tokyo. I saw so many places I recognized. When they walked by Sushi Dai's velvet rope at Tsukiji, it brought back the memories of lining up there for 3 hours at 8am (twice!) to eat that sushi.

I've never eaten at Jiro's. I've walked by a couple times but when I was there, reservations would've taken me right past the time I was supposed to leave. Had I known I would've stayed in Tokyo an extra month, I would've made that reservation instantly. $300 is worth it. A bunch of my friends in Japan have gone before. They said they would do it again, no question.

They explain sushi very well here. Sushi is incredibly subtle but there's so much depth to it. Because it's so simple, it takes mastery of the techniques to make great sushi. There's nowhere to hide with heavy spices or sauces. Fresh fish prepared in the right way. Hell, if you look at their technique and the results on that egg...it is spectacular how perfect that tamago is. Perfect shade of toastedness on the outside but it's SO THIN that there's absolutely no change in the color of the egg past that first millimeter. I couldn't believe it.

Some people in the theater laughed when they heard Jiro and his staff talk about sushi and how it takes years just to learn to hold a knife and such. They must've thought they were joking but that's really what pretty much any skilled trade in Japan is all about. It's like how people treat golf. It's the endless pursuit of perfection. I've eaten at several establishments in Japan that are hundreds of years old that only serve one thing (tempura, sushi, eel, etc). Another guy here on RS (I don't want to look for the thread) once wrote about an unagi place in Osaka where the master was like 90. I love that about Japan. Totally depresses me to know that so many of these places have no one to pass techniques to and that it might not be long before many of the sushi dishes we enjoy today won't be as readily available.

Absolutely amazing. A must see for anyone that loves food, Japan or both. Well paced (perfect at 1h20m) and a great musical score that really emphasizes the artform you're watching.

A Japanese friend told me that if one wants to become a sushi chef in Japan you have to wash dishes for a year or 2 before you can learn how to use a knife.

That really is the case almost anywhere to end up being trained by a chef with any sort of skill.

I wish they got more into the importance of the quality and proper cooking rice in sushi.

Anyone can recommend an excellent Japanese restaurant which can compare with Jiro.

I can't even find a place locally that compares to Sushi Dai, let alone Jiro's.
