And for dessert I went to the 2nd to last Tower Records on earth and rung up a bill that was half of Jiros. It was like having a cigarette or having your loved one make you a turkey sandwich after gettin some. #questtojiro ok that's all kids I hit AIR tonight at 1am so I'm finna nap. The moral is: all you dream deferred cats ain't trying hard enough. Get a dream and commit to that dream. Real commitment as in 8 hours a day prepping that dream for years until its a reality.
shockenb : Forgot to put everyone's favorite hashtag on this post #wreckastowday !!!!!
ejrodriguez58 : All praise, That's tight, I just saw that film 2 weeks ago. A true Master! He elevates all those around him. And Thanks for your view of it.
off2ctheworld : Steven's Mama thinks that what u said about not deferring your dream is motivational, brilliant and real- thank u!
markmollica : @questlove I live by this.....continuous improvement!

By the end Jiro had really warned up to us (he gave me an encore of my 3 favorite pieces for the road: I choose the Fatty Tuna, the Massaged Octopus, and the Tamago Egg Custard he made his son make over 200 times Ina month for practice before he felt like his son was ready for the big time. He literally made that egg dish taste like yellow cake! That's how rich it was!!!!!!! It was beyond awesome of him to grant me a photo. He seemed touched when he learned that I made a pilgrimage over here from the US after watching this film 10 times. #questtojiro
cheersfuckface : @only_pics_of_thomas it's the guy from the DVD dad and I gave you!
frannytravels : Amazing! I love that movie ☺️
aliciabeortiz : Even after weeks past. This post is still so true to my heart.

All good things must come to an end. And how does he end it? The shocker of all shockers---The clear winner of the night was (drumroll please) The honeydew melon!?!!!? There was more juice in this honeydew melon than in Ernest Dickerson's entire screenplay that made 2pac a star. Okay I'm reachin...but this melon served as a trick: Mostly to clean your pallet and make you forget everything you just consumed in the last 30 minutes. It was like the food version of the men in black flashy thing. We ended our meal in 41 mins some 21 mins over the expected time. #questtojiro
coupstreet : Lmao "men in black flashy thing" classic!
tamarasparkles : You need to write a questtojiro memoir 🍣
_maldita_e : So envious of your experience
janel1810 : Thank you so much for sharing this experience with the world. I've been to Japan twice in my life, living in Okinawa for two years and I must say that this is the most inspiring story. This makes me want to go back again just to get a glimpse of what you just experienced.

Seriously you have debates with yourself on whether to eat it. Look at it. Snap it. Or preserve it. This couple was crazier than me!! #questtojiro

This Fatty Tuna (for those that seen the film when he goes to the docks to bid on the auctioned fish? THIS IS THAT FISH!!!!!!---This was clearly the turning point of the meal. I never had sushi melt so smooth.... ever!!!!! -- I mean ---it was like butter! Like there was 0 chewing. It just disappeared. #questtojiro

In case you're wondering: Yes! The food absolutely glistens just like it looks in the movie. I didn't want to be "that guy" Who Instagram's every bite... but by this point he understood our enthusiasm. So with his permission we respectfully took shots of our food before consuming. This is the semi fatty tuna, the 5th out of 19 pieces he made for us one at a time. #questtojiro
majestyd : Ahhh nooo
pizzakat1 : @michael_whitehill
abe_pcf : I would destroy this sushi lol
markmollica : @questlove Thank you for being that guy.....amazing colors and I can just imagine the texture! WOW!

Masters At Work. My interpretation is that he wants to tell a story with his sushi. The first round all savory. The next round all spicy. Round three is buttery and dreamy. Around four is more about texture and less about taste. And then for his stroke of genius act of round five: is the sweetest fish ever known to man. It's literally a roller coaster of taste. #questtojiro
chherd : Wow! You had sushi from the "Master"!
hardway11 : @oldmanmudbutt peep out @questlove photos of his visit! Great pics and funny captions/stories
mrherget : Gold.

Gotta tell you, the tension and pressure in that small arse space (long counter for 10!!!!! Ha! My spot has him beat by 6 chairs!----wait did i just let the cat out the ba----uh nevermind that for now) thing is he is 88 years old and has his entire staff uptight so they are super scowly and it was like I didn't know if I should inhale or not. Soon thereafter I started having nightmares about dropping the food. Should I use my hands like I saw in the movie? or should I use chopsticks like my mama taught me? All these panic stricken questions. What if he Homer Simpsons me making me eat Blowfish? Should I shave my head bald as to not scare him? Will he let me take photos? I wasn't this afraid to breathe in an establishment since the first time I set foot in Will Smith's crib. So by the time this mo descript pic was taken I was 3 mins into my chair. They went down with the rules: you sit, you be quiet, he will feed you. Look nice (yes @melodyehsani I rocked the picnic table jawn) no hats (I removed pic) and you got 20 mins. The guide on the left is less a menu and more of a story. You will eat 16 pieces. And you are gonna love it. #questtojiro
allyrugg : I love your captions
edibleguru : @questlove Thanks for sharing a glimpse of what the menu looked like, truly Awesome!

For those that don't know. The journey that leads to this series of photos started when my ex & I were trying to see The Artist to no avail. Date Nights were far and few between and I didn't want the night to be a total loss. In the next theater was some documentary about sushi. Eh...I was tired anyways....but then when I read the Rotten Tomatoes reviews (99%) I was like "hmmmm why not?...I like sushi, lemme see what's up". What I saw changed my life. It wasn't a mere film about the worlds greatest sushi innovator. This was Gladwelll's Outliers come to life. This was my lifes path before me: a man whose tireless work ethic and drive in pursuit of perfection. I tell people all the time the ultimate occupation is the one you are willing to wake up at 4am for and go to bed at 3:59am with no complaints. It's about artistry and commitment to a craft. It's about how a human hides his pain and redirects it to a work of art. Once a commentator mentioned that making a pilgrimage halfway around the world for a mere sampling of food is worthy of the perfect unattainable 3 star Michelin rating I knew then and there where I wanted to spend my birthday. Thing was my bday was some 9 months after this film came out. And with my schedule there was no telling if I'd be free for this trek. So I made a move on faith: planned my trip blind and prayed by September I'd be cool. The risk is you don't wanna plan a 5 figure lunch trek without the verification being iron clad. I thought September.....truth was I wasn't 100% confirmed (no fallon, no DJ gigs, roots okay with us turning down inauguration, and Jiro giving us the "ok" until 3 weeks ago.....6 months after I $helled out arrangements. Talk about faith! My boy OJ is on the left (his family placed a call to a person who called a person who called someone from government to vouch on my behalf) my manager @dawnenglehart aka @missmaoyen is on the right. We were told 11:30 sharp. It's 11:34 here...we felt like Michael Jackson when he was late to court and rushing in his pjs. We just made it!!!! #QuestToJiro
