Food Trip Friday 003: Tamago kake gohan*



When I was in Japan in 2006, breakfast was served for free in the hotel where I was staying in. Out of curiosity (when in Japan, eat what the Japanese eat!), I ordered the the traditional breakfast. The whole meal is consisted of grilled fish, fermented soy beans (natto) soup (miso), pickles, dried seaweed (nori), steamed rice and other side dishes.

For the second time, I ordered another breakfast meal that is also traditional Japanese (photo above). The usual soup, fermented soy beans, seaweed, pickles, steamed rice with fresh egg. The egg is simply mixed in with the rice and soy sauce. It is known as tamago kake gohan, or, simply translated, egg-sauce over rice. As you can see in the picture, the bowl of rice is traditionally placed on left side with the soup on the right. Both traditional breakfast sets were good and light, just enough to give my stomach a little more space to accomodate more food in a little while.

Willa and LunaI did enjoy Japanese food when I was there. Now, I'm beginning to cook easy but yummy Japanese dishes at home.

Clarissa, I admit the natto was kind of new to my taste so didn't like it the first time.

That's some heavy breakfast. But I like Japanese foods because they're one of the healthiest.

Everything Nice!
