  • I work as a cook in a small pub and its so interesting to see the contrasts between this and that. Some things are the same, but others are so different it is crazy. The place I work is kind of chaotic and the team does not have much synergy together so it makes me remorseful but impressed to see such a well oiled machine in their kitchen.

  • I bet that after the army the most intense and demanding work is being a chef qnd having an restaurant at this level ....the amount of work and perfection takes to put that on a table is fabulous. I agree what he says at the ending of the video and we should appreciate it

I feel like you cant enjoy food the same.

  • A lot of hard work and a lot of love goes into that food. Everything looks fantastic!

  • I cant believe that there's a kitchen that calm and collected during service. Maybe because they are extremely well oiled and geared together, or maybe the author does not want to show the side. Either way, I will definitely want to try the food when I have a chance, looks super delicious!!!

  • This is one of the neatest video presentations that I have come across, in a long while. The editing is sublime and I can't appreciate enough the integrity of a simple narrative without over-decorating the finer details. Thanks to such clarity, I already appreciate the labour and the meticulous concern put behind every preparation at that noodle bar. No wonders they have their Michelin star. Wishing both the best :)
