The preparation process is, to put it mildly, laborious. But RuyGin, a restaurant in Tokyo, is ranked by critics as the 22nd best in the world.

Cooking is a hobby to me, so I try to challenge myself from time to time. Sometimes that involves making something new and complex, other times it involves doing something simple very well (the latter tends to be much more difficult...). How frequent I do something more elaborate waxes and wanes as I have enough other interests and overtime at work, but probably averages at least every other month, or at least once a month if you count the similarly labor intensive efforts to try variations on a simpler recipe to improve it.

And I can appreciate cooking on a budget, as my interest in cooking really picked up while in grad school, and I still try to keep a almost as tight food budget now to save up for higher priorities. There are some ingredients, tools, and techniques that will not be accessibly to a certain budget, and even more not accessible to a certain budget and restrictive free time. But outside of those, there are still infinite variations to try and learning to cook lets you get things you normally couldn't afford (or get things not available period). Of course, if you want those things without taking the time and effort yourself, the costs can add up quick.
