This handsome and talented chef was born in Osaka, the food capital of Japan. His impressive culinary background includes cooking at establishments in Tokyo and Kyoto. Inoue’s authentic New York City restaurant, Takashi, which opened in April 2010, specializes in delicious, traditional, Japanese cuisine to be enjoyed raw or grilled tableside. And how adorable is this: He uses his grandmother’s barbecue sauces and spicy miso paste as the base to his exotic eats. Although Inoue is known for his exquisite Japanese cuisine (as well as his incredible smile!), check out his totally candid, surprising splurge below.
Date-night dinner: I like to turn my kitchen counter into a chef's table and cook a multi-course meal (in Japan we call it kaiseki) for my date in real time. There's nothing more alluring than watching a chef delicately assemble sashimi, so I usually have an assortment of the freshest fish I can find, as well as soup, a main course, and then the dessert.
Favorite way to sweat: I go to the gym almost daily and lift weights in fast rotation. I also burn a lot of calories dancing at the club, which is a lot more fun than going the gym!
Food splurge: McDonald's is my guilty pleasure. It doesn't happen often, but when I get the craving, I really go for it. I order a Double Fillet-o-Fish, one Big Mac, one Triple Cheese Burger, and an order of Chicken McNuggets. That's why I can't go there regularly!
