The Other Critics

Here’s an Emoji Review of Noma’s Tokyo Pop-Up

Bloomberg’s Tejal Rao flew to Tokyo to taste René Redzepi’s 15-course menu built entirely from Japanese ingredients, and she found shrimp covered in ants, monkfish liver, and a particularly exceptional “scallop cloud.” On her way back from dinner, Rao jotted down her notes in emoji form — proving that, between her review and the all-emoji cocktail menu, this is now the preferred method of communicating about highbrow ingredients.
