My friends and I want to have a Japanese lunch, but we have only ramen and chopsticks. What else is considered Japanese??? >.<
Hello Amelia, there are lots of great Japanese food and there are so many different variety of dishes. Some of my favourites are:
Omuraisu (Rice in Omelette)
Omuraisu is a popular Japanese dish that can be called a fusion dish (yoshoku) as it combines a classic omelette with chicken rice. It is usually topped with ketchup and is a popular dish at home or in a restaurant.
Yakimeshi (Japanese Style Fried Rice)
Yakimeshi or Japanese Style Fried Rice is a popular dish to cook at home in Japan. It is best to use left over rice or rice that you have made previously that has been frozen for this recipe to give it the best texture.
Oyako-don (Chicken and Egg with Rice)
Oyako-don is a popular Japanese dish that can be found at home or in a restaurant. Oyako means parent and child in Japanese so both the chicken and egg are used in this famous Japanese dish.
Okonomiyaki (Savoury Japanese Pancake)
Okonomiyaki is a popular dish from Osaka and is basically a savoury pancake with ingredients of your choice along with egg, flour and cabbage as the basic ingredients.
Yakisoba (Japanese stir fry noodles)
Yakisoba is a popular takeaway dish in Japan and is usually served with a fried egg on top and with some Japanese mayonnaise. It is a popular festival food and can be found all over Japan.
Tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlet)
The idea for this recipe originated in the West, but has become a famous Japanese dish like Tempura. Tonkatsu is one of the most popular meat dishes in Japan.
