We love featuring the amazing knife skills of Japanese chefs on Fine Dining Lovers and this latest example might just be the best yet.
Japanese Twitter user @Zoe_Aisheteru posted the image below, of a whole daikon radish carved into an impossible daikon chain, online last weekend. The caption reads: “The head chef gave me this daikon he cut up for fun because he was bored lol”; it’s since been shared over 55k times, with nearly 70k likes.
