I am consistently mystified by the fact that my local tei shoku place always manages to include the perfect ratio of raw tuna to steamed white rice in my 480 yen bowl of maguro don. I never find myself longing for more of either ingredient; each chopstick full contains every luscious flavor the dish ought to have. There are somehow always enough side dish pickles, as well.

Mystified … and happy.
