First let me say how delighted I am to find foreign language films and shows within Netflix Original Series. So my first glorious find is Samurai Gourmet. It’s about a Japanese man, Kasumi, who has retired from corporate life and now has to figure out how to live. When unsure of what to do, he gains wisdom from an imagined masterless samurai.
A huge part of the show is Kasumi finding new joy and remembering his past through food.
Seriously, this is pretty much him being adorable and food porn. I loved it, and I really hope they make a second season.
Sorry I couldn’t find a trailer with English subtitles.
