5 things to eat in Japan

Sushi and sashimi is the image Japanese cuisine has in the world. Japan in fact depending on the area, like other nations has its own regional cuisine and I spent almost most of the year in Japan every time tasting something new and generally very good. Not being able to obviously make a huge excursus on the various dishes I will only list a few:

Gyuudon

Gyuudon 牛 丼

In essence it is a very simple dish of rice and beef. The rice is placed in a bowl over the meat. This is usually eaten in chains as economic Mastuya, Sukiya and Yoshinoya. You can make a complete meal that consists of miso soup, a salad and gyuudon with about 4.50 euro. Minimum cost maximum performance!

Okonokiyaki お好み焼き

“What do you like grilled” it is a special omelet with a base of egg and cabbage to insert into whatever you want: pork, shrimp, octopus etc.. Everything is grilled on the teppan and covered with Okonomiyaki sauce (sweet and sour flavor) and mayonnaise. There is a version of the Kansai area of ​​Kyoto and Osaka where the dish originated from and a version of Kanto, Tokyo area, which differ in the preparation and mixing of ingredients and the version of Hiroshima where they are mixed with the dough soba (buckwheat noodles) or udon.

Ramen ラメン or ら めん

The ramen is a dish of Chinese origin. It is a soup with pasta inside and usually eggs, meat, bamboo shoots, soy sprouts and other depending on the type you choose. Perhaps the most eaten dish in Japan every day. There are shops everywhere where we can eat with prices ranging from 6 to 9 Euros.
