The few experiences i've had making and eating sushi have been unsavory, but it's an adapted taste. I am so obsessed with ramen, tofu, miso soup, curry, and udon noodle soup. Oh, and cold soba noodles... yummy...




Perhaps stars fall, just as the rain

Until they burn on a windowpane

The grief of loss no written place

It is simply painted, on my face.

In the silence of the night he kills.

Ah, yes I have experienced the salty version, but not very often. I am thinking that perhaps the taste fades if the freezing for transport is not done carefully enough, and it could be that once the flavor is entirely gone there is only the salt left. Fortunately there has only been once when encountered soe that had gone bad.

Tofu, miso soup, octopus, and curry are definite faves.


The color of the sala flower reveals the truth that is... To flourish is to fall. The proud do not endure.

Heaven or Hell, Let's Rock!

Like a passing dream on a night in Spring. The mighty fall at last, to be no more than dust before the wind.

The only thing remotely Japanese that I've tasted, and disliked, has been Ikura. Oh, another food I've had and disliked, has been Edomame. My teacher gave me this. It was way too salty for me. I acted as if I liked it, especially when she gave me some another time, so I just accepted it to be polite.

Even though I've never had it, I have this feeling that I wouldn't like Natto at all, but of course, as I say, "Don't knock something until you've tried it."

As for stuff I've tasted and loved, I'd have to go with okonomiyaki, yakitori, and sukiyaki. I sukiyaki.

I would say Ramen, but I've never had any decent ramen, imo, and by decent, I mean able to go to a stand and order some nice and fresh. The stuff in the cup doesn't cut it for me. With the Japanese restaurants around here, it's mostly Udon or Soba based dishes.

I love curry. It's by far my favorite food overall.

As for least favorite, I'm not entirely sure. There hasn't been anything I've run across yet that I absolutely dislike. I'm sure while I keep experimenting, I'll discover something. xD

Yum, fresh wasabi! I really love it, but I try to cut back on it when my sushi is good enough on its own.

But I recently was urged to eat more of it by a certain itamae.
Itamae-san, if you are reading this, you were right because it was very good.
