    I'm tempted to make this a signature. Mind you, I have never had one before...

    My wife made it and she's not for sale.:)
    Fish is from Tokyo Fish Market on San Pablo Ave. The best fish store going.

    Tell your wife to take it easy with the toasted sesame seeds.

    And she also should practice her knife work: so uneven, it's laughable. Seems like she's working with a very dull blade. Maybe buy her a mandoline as an anniversary present. Or, better yet, get her some beta blockers to help with all that jittering going on in her hands. Does she have Parkinson's or something?

    Also, what's with the julienned spider leg garnish? Is it Halloween already?

    I :inlove: Tokyo Fish. I'd go more but Monterey's wholesale operation is a few blocks from my house. Have you been to Ippuku on Center St.? It's my favorite restaurant in the Bay Area these days.

    Not a bad try mm, but that looks like chiffonade of seaweed to me. You need to up your recognition skillz.

    Funny, but here you get criticism in proportion to your pretension. There's little less pretentious than a pile of food in a bowl.

    Given the abuse mgm has gotten daily, I am surprised he had gone so long without biting back even a LITTLE.

    Why is my food pretentious? Because I buy quality ingredients and respect them enough to take the time to present them in an attractive manner, rather than plop them in a bowl?

    Only you see that as pretension; I see it as respect.

    If one satirical outburst on my end means I should be on medication, then half of the members on this forum forget to take theirs on a daily basis.

    Respect for what exactly? Arranging shit on a plate in an intricate manner is not a Japanese custom for respecting one's elders that I know of.

    They were attractive when living. Your job (and the true respect) is to make them taste good and pair flavors well/construct a nice meal that makes sense without making them too ugly. Straw man is cooked with chicken in sealed casserole.
