New Years is my least favorite holiday of the year. To me, it's like the equivalent of bowling: I would rather stay home and do nothing. There's little I enjoy less than reminders that I'm getting older and looking back on on how little I've accomplished, so New Years pretty much checks off all the boxes. However, this year, I decided to have dinner at Kajitsu, a restaurant specializing in Buddhist temple cuisine. I remembered once reading that they did a special New Year's meal, and I finally decided to try it out. While this would prove to have been a false lead, the meal was nevertheless as thoughtful and meticulously-crafted as anything straight outta Kyoto, and I would have never known otherwise, had I not asked, that this was not a special holiday meal - that it was, in fact, the daily standard.
