If you knew sushi like I know sushi...


Plastic models of food in Tokyo restaurants are so real that even the salads have plastic French dressing on the leaves. There must be some pretty expert modelling fanatics out there.My second day in Tokyo, and I'm still like a kid in a toyshop. If it weren't for the fact that these plates are standing on end, and that gravity-resistant gravy hasn't been invented yet, I'd have sworn the food on them was real. It's quite amusing to see how grotesque a lot of western food like meatballs and chips looks when it's been sculpted out of plastic, a bit like seeing yourself in the mirror with a hangover. Japanese food, on the other hand, looks as if someone decided what it should look like, and then tried to make the food fit the design.
