Welcome back to my blog!
If you haven’t seen my previous posts on Japan, you can find them below:
Anyway, today we’re going to be talk about Japanese food! I’ll give a brief description of each dish, and I’ll add a picture for some of them.
Sushi (すし) – There are a couple of different types of sushi:
Nori-maki – Raw fish (and/or vegetables) wrapped in rice and seaweed
Nigiri – Piece of raw fish on top of vinegared rice
Here is some sushi I had for dinner a few nights ago:
(I got a california roll, tuna roll, and salmon roll)
(To edit this image, I used an app called Canva to get rid of the background, then in Photos, I added all the words)
(I’m pretty sure that I labeled everything right, but if it’s not, sorry)
Sashimi (さしみ) – Sashimi is raw fish sliced into pieces, (like nigiri, but no rice)
Ramen (ラーメン) – Wheat noodles served in broth, with toppings such as: pork, egg, naruto (a fish cake with a swirl on it, looks like this- 🍥) nori (seaweed) and more. Fun Fact: Ramen originated in China
(Again, I used Canva to remove the background, and in Photos, I added the writing)
Udon (うどん) – Thick wheat noodles served in broth
Tempura (てんぷら) – Seafood or vegetables lightly battered, and then fried
Onigiri (おにぎり) – A rice ball usually wrapped in seaweed
Gyoza (ぎょざ) – Dumplings with a ground meat and/or vegetable filling
Here’s a picture I took a while ago, and I just remembered it now:
Looks like a face, doesn’t it?
I think the left eye is a california roll, I don’t know what the right eye is, and the nose is a gyoza.
That’s all I’m going to write today, I hope you enjoyed reading a bit about Japanese food!
