Stuffed Tomatoes...served whole

I watched the Japanese chef peel the skin of each tomato while I ate at the counter. There was a large tray of peeled tomatoes waiting to be prepared for starters and served.

My patience waiting for the appetizer paid off as I thought it was lusciously beautiful.

Note: This was taken months and months ago at a Japanese restaurant in Taiwan. The restaurant was located just downstairs, where we stayed. I suddenly miss those "carefree" days. And I still have many "un-posted" photos to post, so here you are.
