    Default Your Japanese Kitchen

    This show is on our local PBS. They did the shrimp cake recipe. Looked pretty good - links to other recipes on the site, interesting stuff. Good luck finding ingredients...

    I had a bottle of that okonomiyaki sauce for a while. They were giving them away at an exhibition sumo match here a few years back. Nice flavor, similar to ketchup. A great way to sample Japanese is to go to an izakaya bar - best described as pub food or tapas in the way it is served, but think yakiniku, sashimi, etc as the fare. And, of course, beer, sake , shochu (which is worthy of its own thread, a great undiscovered by many drink). There is a terrific place close to home here, but it is a PITA to get in and the seats are tiny. Food and drink is great....

    TT - I am more of an udon fan, keep an eye out if you are in that aisle - a similar noodle to ramen, but bigger and thicker. Are you still in need of a ramen bowl? I think I know where to get the one you wanted - I'll pop in when I am over in that part of town - I have an errand to run nearby in the not to distant future.

    Hey Bucko, checking in.
    I am about to pop. I've just finished my first homemade bowl of Japanese noodle soup. Thanks for the push, it is so easy and fast. Good for you too.
    Next go around I'll have pictures but for now I'll break it down.
    First is the soup stock, when my sis was visiting we had leftover fresh veggies from a massive dinner and she graciously left me with a gallon of stock in the freezer.
    Into the stock went Fish flakes (Dashi / Bonito) Japanese Hon Dashi Bonito Fish Soup Stock, White Miso Paste Shiro Miso Paste NON GMO No MSG Added, Tofu Chunks. In a separate pot the noodles KA-ME Chinese Noodles Misna were cooked and than rinsed. Put it all together with hot sauce = Happy boy.

    Next time I'll have fresh cilantro and shredded cabbage to go with Udon noodles. I've got several packages in the wings.

    I'm sure that it is great. I may have to wander out the door to go find some, it will be good for my cold.

    TT - there are several good sources for Japanese ingredients around Bethesda/Rockville, but my Japanese wife's favorite is Hinata - a tiny shop in Bethesda just down from Rock Bottom Brewery. It is a mom and pop place with all of what you need, and Pop even makes sushi. Highly recommended for Japanese ingredients in Montgomery County.
