New York is a food town and so are the cities of Japan.
But we’ll slurp soup on a subway ride and the Japanese wouldn’t dream of it.
Supermarket food is perfect in every way: hygienic, fastidiously presented and insanely expensive.
Everything is neatly stacked, tightly wrapped or vacuum packed.
Quality meats are beautiful, too, and wildly out of reach.
This ain’t no WesternBEEF.
Top shelf stuff can cost upwards of $88 a pound.
They cook with flower blossoms, too!
Food presentation is fine art.
I found an old favorite in Kyoto.
But really, $5.29 for salt?!
Have an affordable weekend!
