Japanese Food Thread - Preparing for our Trip

Jump to last reply

I've been experimenting with Japanese ingredients. Tonight I prepared a salad of grilled teriyaki steak with broccoli, roasted red peppers and soba noodles. Don't know how authentic it is but I did make "real" teriyaki sauce with Japanese sake and served the dish warm. I have also recently use miso in a dish and have made my own dashi stock. I have had to order most of the ingredients for these things on line. Does anyone have suggestions for other dishes to try?

Regarding restaurants, we have many in our area that offer sushi, tempora or grilled meats. I've seen that in Japan restaurants generally specialize. Jeane does not care for sushi or sashimi (what's the difference?) but she can deal with tempora and it is likely that she would be fine with restaurants that specialize in teppenyaki (grilled meats and vegies). Kaiseki restaurants where multiple courses are served as part of a set menu also seem like they would work for us. Could we expect this type of food at an upscale ryokan? Anyway, I am looking for more ideas on what to look for and where Jeane and I would be happy experimenting.

Finally, we like to snack during the day. We prefer to avoid a big sit-down meal at lunch. This saves us time and helps us watch our weights. Any suggestions on the best way to snack in Japan?

I am sure as the "experts" respond, I will have more questions...
