In a back alley of a busy district sits a small eatery called Meshiya, referred to by its patrons as the Midnight Diner. The little joint, which the Master runs by himself, is open only from midnight to 7:00 AM. The menu consists only of a pork miso soup set, beer, saké and shochu, but the Master’s policy is to make whatever his customers request. Tonight, like every other night, a menagerie of customers flock to the Midnight Diner, where the bonds among the Master, his food and the patrons set the stage for humorous and sometimes wistful episodes of human drama that feed both the belly and the soul.

A lighthearted, pleasant and gentle show (mysterious lead with a cool scar is a nice touch) with genuine, heartwarming performances. Episode 2 and 4 are my favorites. As someone who has romanticized the idea if wandering the narrow streets of Japan at night, searching for a cozy ramen stand, I got hooked. Definitely not a show for everyone, but a nice taste of a different culture.
