One of the many enjoyable perks of traveling is being able to try different cuisines from different places that you visit. However, it can be very expensive to travel all the time but luckily, there is a service that would bring the world right to your door steps. Try the World has the perfect idea of bringing different kind of foods from around the world to your home through their monthly subscrion box. The last one I received from them is the introduction to the Argentine culture. This time, it is Japan's mix of modernity and tradition.
My husband has been to Japan multiple times when he was still in the Navy so I thought it was perfect to make him this savory pancakes for Father's Day breakfast. The mix included everything that you need (flavor-wise), all you need to add is egg, veggies, and bacon or pork. It was my first time trying a savory pancake and I'd say that I liked it! In fact, I want one more of this okomiyaki kit!
Another goodie in the box is the blueberry matcha tea, known as the finest green tea in the world.. I haven't tried this tea yet as I am currently using a different one but I have seen a cookie recipe with matcha tea so I wikll try that soon!
I have been using this Wadakan Umami Ponszu sauce and loving it. This sweet, salty, and tangy sauce is made with citrus and soy sauce which is perfect for dressing frilled meat or fish. YOu can also use it as a dipping sauce or salad dressing, just whisk it into oil to thicken, then toss with cold noodles.
I made these Grilled Shrimp Kebabs a few weeks ago and it turned out extra delicious using the sauce as a marinade before frilling it.
We are a big fan of seafood here at home so I usually cook fish or shrimp. These grilled salmon tasted so delicious. I marinated it using the sauce before grilling them.
I have never had soba noodles made with yam and wheat so I got curious with this one. I had yakisoba before and loved it so I thought this soba noodles would be good as the yakisoba.
You can check out the soba noodles recipe that I did for thisone. It was delicious!
This Kasugai, fummy candies are delicious as well. That's probably because I love lychee fruit. My kids never had lychee so they did not like the taste of this. It was alright as I got to consume this for myself lol.
My kids love seaweed snack. We usually buy this at the Asian store down in Pittsburgh and it doesn't last very long because it's a great thing to use for wraps.
They love it for school lunches so I usually made this kind of lunch for them during school days.
Mr. Burrito's makizushi with oranges for dessert
These milk caramels were delicious. My kids got addicted to it. I brought it in my bag and my son found it, he ate most of it while in mass! Now they want more.
