There was more juice in this honeydew melon than in Ernest Dickerson’s entire screenplay that made 2pac a star. Okay I’m reachin…but this melon served as a trick: Mostly to clean your pallet and make you forget everything you just consumed in the last 30 minutes.

He literally made that egg dish taste like yellow cake! That’s how rich it was!!!!!!! It was beyond awesome of him to grant me a photo. He seemed touched when he learned that I made a pilgrimage over here from the US after watching this film 10 times.
Jiro coulda easily been a DJ yo.
