It’s hard to imagine in a country where Costa Coffee, Greggs and Burger King represent the pinnacle of train station cuisine, but over in Tokyo an ordinary subway station houses a world-class restaurant within. Despite its location and unassuming size (with a total capacity of 10 seats), Jiro Ono’s tiny sushi bar holds an exceptional three Michelin star rating, has been visited by Barack Obama, and receives reservations months in advance from eager foodies. The 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi follows the incredible story of the 85-year-old chef and his two sons, following in their father’s footsteps in their continual aim to master the art of sushi. If reading this is enough to make you feel hungry already, you’ll be pleased to know that Levenshulme Film Club’s upcoming screening of the film will be accompanied by complimentary Japanese food, with beers courtesy of local craft brewer Mellow Muel also available to purchase.
