“Super Sushi Ramen Express” by Michael Booth

I found this book to be lazy in a variety of ways. For example: more than one chapter amounts to little more than quoting promotional materials from a PR officer; every city visited gets a paragraph that could be ripped from a mediocre guidebook about the fundamental character of its populace; there are repetitive, credulous comments about the health benefits of various foods; and the word “inscrutable” appears far more often than it should. All of this is too bad, because the parts where the author actually writes about the food he eats are pretty engaging. I probably wouldn’t recommend it.
