Bad Beans

Greetings, loyal minions. Your Maximum Leader sees that Kagurazaka Ishikawa, a Michelin three-star restaurant in Tokyo, is taking some heat for selling bad beans.

The black beans were sold under the name of the Kagurazaka Ishikawa restaurant, known for its dishes of seasonal fish and meat.

The beans, which went on sale at a Takashimaya department store in Tokyo, were found to contain Bacillus Cereus bacteria that could cause vomiting or diarrhea, said Nana Okada, a spokeswoman at Takashimaya Co.

The beans, which were made at a factory in central Japan under the guidance of the three-star restaurant in Tokyo, were possibly not heated sufficiently to be disinfected, Okada said.

Oy! Your Maximum Leader would probably revoke one of those stars after learning about this.

Your Maximum Leader was surprised to read, not in this article - but in a piece in the Times of London a while back, that after France; Japan has more Michelin three-star restaurants than any other nation. Your Maximum Leader thinks that before too long the most three-star restaurants outside France will be in located in Dubai…

Carry on.

The reason Tokyo has so many three-star restaurants is because it just has so many restaurants, period. Dubai is up-and-coming, for sure, but Tokyo is a massive, sprawling city (the largest metropolitan area in the world by far, going by population) peppered with eateries. I honestly think it might be difficult for Dubai to catch up.
