Here's what a $600 meal for 1 looks like at America's second most expensive restaurant.


This was, hands down, my favourite course.
Fresh sea urchin (uni) on grilled bread that was basted in a sauce made of the offcuts of the bread. Like a bread confit.. Idk - it was awesome. I've never had sea urchin before, it was SUPER creamy.. like the butter of the sea. So amazingly fresh and the sauce in the bread was incredible. Definitely my favourite. - Album on Imgur

Your Say

It looks like an Alien autopsy on a plate.

I reviewed the entire meal and - although I do love uni - let's be honest: this is not food it's art. Hang it on the wall and bring out the meat!

Looks alright, but we all know there's nothing like the homemade snot your mom used to make, right?

My taste buds can't appreciate over say $35.00-$40.00. That's my cutoff.

A coupla chili dawgz from Sonic act the same way, when they hit the sewer pipe the very next day.

She was adorable, but I doubt I'll ever be attracted to that kind of meal:

"They used every part of the radish to make this dish."

How many parts does a radish have?

meh. I had it. Felt like a real pig. Only ate half, so filling.
Seriously, I felt like an orca afterward.

Next time I'll just order the side of braised gazelle and share it with the wife.

"Not sure about this one. Pumpkin puree in cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil. It felt like it was kind of added as an afterthought and was way too salty. I'm not even sure how I was supposed to eat it."

That was the finger bowl to clean the octopus flakes off of your digits. Asians wash up with oil, we used water in the west. Really, some people are so provincial./
