All the food in this post was eaten by me alone in one sitting! Clockwise from top left: Fried oysters, sauteed smoked duck breast, grilled squid, sashimi (mackerel, surf clam, salmon, sweet shrimp, swordfish), grilled sanma, unagi sushi and tempura.
I know what you are thinking: A second Japanese buffet post in a row!?! Sadly this is of the now deceased Edogawa at Novena. It used to be my favorite Japanese buffet. The pictures you see here are from a meal I had by myself. I remember coming down the escalator right after working out at the gym and I thought why the heck not. I could do a buffet by myself, order anything I wanted.
But the post isn’t about the restaurant. This post is about food and how it makes us feel. How it becomes something more than just nourishment. How it becomes a force in our lives.
For me it is an anesthetic, a source of inspiration and a focus for hope.
