-Japanese food is something else. comforting yet sofisticated, delicate and detailed. And so so tasty and diverse! 😋 #takemeback #eatingjapan .
Restaurants typically specialize in a single type of Japanese food (there are so many!), so they do it really really well. We didn't eat a single meal in Japan we didn't like. Here are some of our favorites: .
1. Udon! thick wheat flour noodles most often served hot with a mildly flavoured broth called kakejiru, which is made of dashi, soy sauce, and mirin. You simply dip them in the broth ! .
2. Soba! thin noodles made from buckwheat flour. served either chilled with a dipping sauce, or in this case in a hot broth .
3.Bento box! Mostly a take-out/home-packed meal with a bunch of little tasty things including fish, rice, pickled veggies, etc .
4. Sushi! Mostly considered a fancy food in Japan, the impossibly fresh fish literally melts in your mouth. This one is sea urchin (like a bite of the ocean, really) .
5. Udon but in a cold broth .
6. Ramen! Not that it needs an explanation but...wheat noddles in a meat broth (although it can also be fish based), flavored with miso or sou sauce, topped with many yummy things. .
7. Eel .
8. Takoyaki! Wheat flour batter balls filled with octopus, pickled ginger, green onion, and tempura scraps, then topped with mayo, takoyaki sauce and bonito flakes .
9. Breakfast food .
10. Just a beautiful 🍆 with miso sauce
