I have been reading Tsunagu Japan‘s articles about Japan, and I am getting the itch to plan a vacation there! There is so much beauty, within their culture, scenery, architecture, and their way of life. There is one thing that fuels my fire when it comes to travel, and that is tasting all of the different foods. Japanese food is much more than cute, it’s absolutely delicious!

3 Mouthwatering Foods To Try In Japan

UNAGI (eel)

“You’re eating EEL?” This was my initial reaction when I learned that propel actually eat eels. Eat eels? Have you seen the face of one? UGH. Anyway, I was completely against all things eel until I unknowingly had some in a sushi roll I ordered. Oh, my, yum. They are freshwater eel that is served in many Japanese dishes and is cooked well. You can eat it in sushi, nigiri, served over rice, or in a salad, or even have an unagi steak.

UDON (noodle soup)

Noodle lovers will flourish in Japan. Udon is one of my favorites, it’s a thick noodle made of wheat flour, which can be garnished in so many ways! One of my favorite styles of udon comes in the form of a hot noodle soup in a miso like broth, covered in vegetables, meat, seafood, eggs, and scallions. This is the perfect warm winter meal, I can just imagine indulging in Japan. Appaernetly there is a chain restaurant called Tsurutontan that has tons of udon combinations. Count me in!




KATSU CURRY (chicken)

This is one of my favorite Japanese dishes. Curry itself is one of the most popular dishes in japan, but katsu curry involves panko breaded chicken cutlets, baked or fried, drenched in curry sauce and oh so delicious! Served over rice and vegetables, katsu curry is a warm, filling meal that will excite your taste buds. It can also be made with pork, but we’re a chicken family. I can’t wait to try authentic katsu curry in Japan! See what other products are made with Japanese curry.
