Foodie Friday: Japanese indulgence

Light and fresh are the two words I’d pick to sum up Japanese cuisine. While it took a day or so to adjust, the food definitely agreed with me. I grew up on a diet of rice, and to this date my stomach still does best with Asian food – I have trouble digesting heavier meals.

Also, impeccable? Someone on the Japanese food subreddit commented that while they’d encountered some food that wasn’t up their alley, they’d never had a bad meal there – and I couldn’t agree more.

You definitely wouldn’t want to eat burnt ramen too often, but it’s certainly something special.

Stumbled across champon noodles, which turned out to be his new favourite dish.

Sushi in Kyoto - NZ Muse

Sushi (say no more). Lean red tuna, get in my belly. The miso that came with this particular meal was mind blowing – the most complex and subtle I’ve ever had. Like with Vietnamese pho, I doubt we’ll ever find that here at home.

    I love Japanese food – can’t wait till I actually visit Japan someday and get to enjoy it there. I think I can eat sushi almost everyday!

    Oh boy I had a light dinner and those pics made me starving, lol! I love Japan and Japanese food. Fresh udon is hard to beat – the noodles are chewy unlike what you get in the States. I was in Japan about a year ago and ate myself silly. They have the most expensive giant purple grapes there that are better than candy!
