In the fourth episode of the Tadaima series, Issam and a friend discovered an eccentric restaurant in the Nihonbashi area of Tokyo. Initially awed by the unique decor of Yasai Izakaya Genki, chef Niino Satoshi continued the atmosphere of eccentricity and surprised Issam with his incredible passion for food and creativity. The piece displays Issam’s understanding of Tadaima; to be at home in the moment, and at home with another through art, and represents the true individuality of somebody he happened to meet in a spontaneous moment.
As one collaboration comes to an end, the Tadaima project goes on. With new locations to fall in love with, different individuals to inspire, and perhaps a different cocktail to be had, who will cross Issam's path next?
