When you hear the word “donburi” you’d imagine many kinds of donburi dishes… oyako-donburi, ten-don (tempura-donburi), una-don (unagi-donburi), katsu-don (katsu donburi), kaisen-donburi etc etc. There are many types of donburi dishes in Japan and I can’t count how many…
Donburi is one of the quick and easy dish you can have at restaurants or home – and has been one of the most popular lunch menu for office workers to grab during the short lunch break.
My favourite is oyako-donburi!! …but I also like ten-don, una-don…. hmmm writing this makes me really really hungry!!
Now, in Japan, there is a new kind of donburi dish called “wasabi donburi”. It sounds like something you’d have to eat as a penalty of the game :p But it appears to be delicious!
As the name indicates, the key item is wasabi. Wasabi donburi actually is a very simple dish – just a bowl of steamed rice, katsuo-bushi (bonito flakes), wasabi and soy sauce.
Sounds weird?? If you love wasabi you must try this!!
You will need fresh block of wasabi for this dish.
Freshly steamed rice in a bowl.
Freshly grate wasabi and place on top of rice.
Pour the best quality soy sauce..
And eat as you mix the wasabi into rice…
Hmmmm it does sound yummy to me!!
