'Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories' Offers Filling Comfort Food for the Viewer - PopMatters - according to Popmatters

The series ends with "New Year's Eve Noodles Again", putting the focus back on the faces we've seen commenting on the stories. There's a cameo by a woman who's never properly introduced, but whom we can presume is the Master's own wife. They wash dishes together and she leaves after he declines visiting a shrine with her. Traditionally, shrines of the dead are visited on New Year’s Day, and without saying a word, it feels like the shrine in question belongs to the couple's own child. The Master remains his stoic self, and while it wouldn't be right to call it a happy ending, there's nothing definably sad about it either.

'Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories' Is Decidedly Low-Key, But It Does One Thing More American Shows Should - Decider - via Decider

Set in one location, Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories is an anthology series about the comings and goings in the same Tokyo diner. The diner’s owner (Kaoru Kobayashi) cooks up one signature dish per episode and entertains a revolving door of customers. There are regulars and newcomers, and every episode put the spotlight on a different story. There’s the woman who knits sweaters for the oblivious men she knows (she really likes the pork steaks); a young wastrel being looked after by a gambler likes a good egg tofu. The stories are decidedly low-key, which is honestly a relief in these days of big TV bombast (it helps that the episodes are also a shade under 30 minutes. The stories are sweet and likeable, but the food is the real story here.

Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories - La pancia come centro sensoriale delle emozioni - by Cinefacts

La serie TV che mi ha portato a scoprire i vicoli e gli Izakaya nascosti, andando oltre la barriera della lingua, affidandomi allo stomaco, al risucchio rumoroso, che è educazione, quando si beve il ramen dalla ciotola.
