Don't bother learning Japanese unless you are prepared to be a mental masochist, which is what I am..
all u need is string me along, I m a regular at that restaurant..
I could eat Japanese food all day long..
will take u to my favorite Japanese restaurant..quaint and you would think you are in Japan.. best house salad made of three different types of raw fish and a variety of seaweed and vegetable with a miso sauce..and the salarymen's drinking menu ala tapas style is written in JAPANESE on the board , so u need to read Japanese to order those house specials..with a variety of sake..
Min, The egg is optional, I don't always like it. BUt when raw egg meets hot rice they turn semi cooked , like sunny side up for breakfast..and mixed in with soya sauce and seaweed it is quite a lovely subtle flavor together with the fish and wasabi..NOw wasabi and 'shiso' leaves (served at good Japanese restaurants outside Japan ) are calming and anti-bacterial herbs for eating raw fish ..it is good for the stomache. I use to grow them like weeds in the garden.
Tuna rice was my quick lunch all the time..and so healthy too.
Yeah, drop in to London anytime ..will have a blast I bet..lol
OK - that's it Bonnie! I'm coming over on the next flight - lol!
That last one sounded delicious too. I guess the egg is raw right? That sounds bit strange but apart from that, the combination sounds good. How do you mix the egg in?
Min and CP I think we will certainly be great together on a trip..definitely foodie club...
CP..I could cook alot of the cuisine you mentioned and Japanese dishes since I lived there for 6 years, and the best sushi is found near the main fish market Tsukiji in Tokyo , if you are ever there..the fishermen and fish wholesalers after their morning bidding would gather in the sushi shop there for the freshest sushi you will find on earth!
Easy meal for lunch is get a pack of raw minced tuna, put on top of hot rice and break an egg over it and sprinkle chopped spring onion and seaweed over the top drizzle with soya sauce and wasabi..great high power lunch!!
I also love Japanese food and pretty much everything else too! Indian cuisine is among my favorites, and Thai too. Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Greek, Indonesian, French - you name it....
I love exotic, spicy tastes.... bland is not for me...

Well of course!! Silly me... what a question... lol!
All I've had today is some cheese and bread. And no time for a real dinner - must rush off. Not good!!
Any other nice recipes CP?? Cubby, what about you??

Hi Cubby... a Corvette huh? Nice car but I never would have recognised it from behind. I'm not sure what the front looks like either.
Yep - it sure was getting warm in the kitchen.... it was that spicy recipe....
he's just nothin' but trouble that CP...
so, is this a recipe that you've tested and have gotten the results you wanted? I mean, this is important CP, you realise that if the rest of us have to try it. Preferably testing it once before inviting guests right??
