Hmmm, I think everything I've tried so far has been pretty good... but miso soup is probably my favorite :D .

Least favorite... maybe octopus sushi; it's not bad, really, but the texture's a bit chewy for me.

I love Wasabi...

...wait, that isn't really food...

I'm rather skeptical about people who say natto is their favorite. Its an acquired taste to be sure, cheap and healthy, but there are far better flavors in Japanese cuisine than natto. I used to have it for breakfast, its not bad, but not the best.

My personal favorite would be a tie between takoyaki and a good miso soup.

My least would have to be いくら(ikura, fish egg) sushi. I could never get past the texture of it.

When I went to Japan over spring break I had a lot of different kinds of foods.

So far my favorite was Tempura.

The one that was my least favorite would have to be Curry Rice.

I'm not saying it was horrible tasting. It was good, it was just the least favorite of them all. Pretty much everything tasked awesome!

That's your palette, not mine. I list it as my favorite because its the one Japanese food that I actually get cravings for...... just like for kimchi, though that is less often. Its also the only dish I will drive 20 miles across town to get from an Asian grocery store when I don't need anything else.

oooh, I forgot about that. It right up there with uni for me, but more because of the unappealing texture and the lack of taste, unlike uni's very distinct (and for me objectionable) taste.
