So pleased to see Rick Stein in Tokyo for his latest show on the BBC. If you don’t know he’s a famous tv chef from Cornwall in the UK. It turns out that despite being well known for his love of fish, this was actually his first visit to the biggest consumers of fish in the world!
Thought the program was well done and I was very happy to see him check out some of the smokey street yakitori joints as well as the higher end sushi restaurants a lot of these programs focus on. He even mentions the sea squirts in Tsukiji market I was talking about last week!
I really recommend watching at least the first half where Rick’s actually in Tokyo. If anyone is interested in seeing the places visited in the program or experiencing some of the food eaten…get in contact with us and we’ll sort it out for you.
And to Rick, if you’re in town again then drop us a line, we know some excellent places we’d love to take you. Trust us when we say one ‘foody’ visit to Tokyo is never enough.
Skip to about 4mins 30secs if you want to go straight to the food.
