THOUGHT FOR FOOD This is the book in which nothing happens but everything is consumed! Like 'The Walking Man' at lunch!! What do we learn about Mister Inogashira? He’s a sole, independent trader importing household and fashion goods from France. He is always busy but never rushed as he travels around Japan selling his wares. He’s a private person who, whilst he enjoys the company of women, prefers to remain a bachelor. He smokes cigarettes but never touches alcohol. But above all, he enjoys his food! He is The Solitary Gourmet! Each of the thirty-two chapters explores another dish in another restaurant in another part of town – from Tokyo to Tottori, from Osaka to hospital (yes!) and even ventures to an Algerian restaurant in Paris, eating and observing.

This is my favourite manga of all time! I love every part of it: The drawing, the food, the character. It doesn't have much story, but the food is expertly described and illustrated, making up for that issue. The only sad part is that, as far as I know, it has not been translated into English. I read it in French and I'm pretty sure it's been translated into Spanish, so if you speak either of those languages, go and check it out! Edit:After writing this review, I searched google to see if there was an English translation anywhere. After researching for a little bit, I found an English translation! How wonderful! Now everyone can enjoy this wonderful manga!
