For fans of food-focused movies, documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi deserves a spot at the top of the list. The film explores Sukijabashi Jiro, a tiny sushi restaurant in the basement of an office building and it’s nearly 90 year old chef Jiro, known as perhaps the best sushi chef in the world. Despite the unassuming appearance of the restaurant, it is strictly reservations-only, with an extremely long waiting list for a table. Each meal lasts approximately 30 minutes and prices start around $300 depending on the types of fish available that particular day.
