I Remember – #772

I remember ordering – by happy accident – seared chicken breast skewers from a tiny restaurant buried away at the back of the Nishiki markets in Kyoto.  There, I ate real wasabi for the first time, grated directly on to my food immediately before eating.  And there, I ate what was, in effect, raw chicken, with the outside deeply seared, like a medium rare steak.  Incredible.
