Raw liver(liver sashimi)

Raw river(liver sashimi)

Can you imagine how does this dish taste?

Generally qw can find it at Yakiniku restaurant. You can't find it at market. Freshness is important for eating dish like this.

Especially we like it as side dish for beer. Very thin sliced but taste strong.

I dip it into sesami oil, but dipping into soy sauce with ground ginger is preferable as well :)

You probably can find it at Yakiniku restaurant near your place.

Iwashi Mentaiko

Iwashi Mentaiko

Iwashi means sardine and Mentaiko is cod ovum according to dictionary.

Mentaiko is popular food in Japan but I have heard that it was imported from Korea. If you want to know more, please google it.

Head and bowel removed, and mentaiko put into abdomen.

Just purchesed at the market and grill on Pan by oil stove fire :p

I ate it for the first time but felt nice combination!

But I think it is pretty hard to eat in overseas...

But I like it and can perchase at burgain plice if compared with Tuna sashimi, therefore I often take it in market.

Mabo harusame

Mabo harusame

This is an arange of Chinese Mabo series :p

I'm not sure what Mabo means in English, but we recognize it as red and spice something, flavor of Chinese spice.

I introduced about Mabo dofu before, so if you want to know about, please refer to the post.

Harusame is probably tight rice noodle. We put it into Nabe cuisine generally, but boil and stirfrying with sauce is delicious as well :D

Maguro Natto

Maguro Natto

I'm not sure if I ever introduced about this strange(for foreigner) on this blog.

So if you don't know well about, please read this post.

I love it and have recommended to friend via weblog ever, but most of them can't accept :( Even if they are Japanese food lover..

Maguro Natto means Tuna and natto. In case of this, tuna is raw(as sashimi or sushi).

I think if you are reading this blog, probably you guys are intrested or like Japanese food. Including Tuna sushi(I think it is most popular Japanese food for foreigner).

I like Tuna sashimi as well, but natto make it better.

Just pour soy sauce as when you take tuna sashimi. Add wasabi if available :D
