Midnight Diner – Tokyo Stories (Netflix)

Midnight Diner is by far my favorite show to watch on a quiet evening after the family has gone to bed. It’s based around a tiny, single-cook diner on a humble lane in Tokyo. Every episode is a stand alone short story with very few repeat characters outside of “Master”, the chef/owner of the diner. A single meal is featured as a sub-plot for each episode, which – like the storyline – appears simple but carries graceful complexity to a delicious end.
