I am like a prized tuna

I have been outside for a total of 3 minutes in the past 4 days.  Outdoors time = hotel door to taxi + taxi door to office + office to taxi + taxi door to hotel.

When fishermen catch a tuna, they try to minimize the tuna’s exposure to air. It keeps the meat as fresh as possible.

In my case, I will just develop a Vitamin D deficiency.

    Hi! Chanced upon your blog and found out about your sushi venture… I was in Tokyo 2 weeks ago and love the standing sushi bars! Have you been to those in Shinjuku/Shibuya? Anyway, will you serve ‘aburi’ sushi – the flame-torched kind. It’s great!

    Hi fleck! Yep, the standing sushi bars in Tokyo are where I got my idea from! Coincidentally a friend was just there last week and sent me photos from the exact standing sushi bar in Shibuya that inspired me to try to recreate the concept in Singapore.

    Definitely will have aburi. In Tokyo I loved watching the chefs take the torch and flame the fish. It brings out a different flavor. And nicely it was same price aburi or not! I’ll do the same.

    Now if only the government would hurry up and approve my restaurant license so I could open…
