Best WWF-Loving Sushi Master (2008)


Many people who think they know sushi treat it like high art, referring in hushed tones to the "itamae-san" and bowing at any chance they get. So it's refreshing that when foodie faux intellectuals pepper NAOMICHI YASUDA, chef at the excellent Sushi Yasuda, with questions about the source of his o-toro, he often shifts the subject of conversation to his second love: pro-wrestling. Reminds you that nigiri sushi originated as working-class food.
