Otsumami
 
How do you call these kind of foods which

1) eat it during drinking alcohol
2) not sweet, rather salty or spicy
3) not for children

We call them TSUMAMI, O-TSUMAMI or SAKE NO SAKANA.

Here is an example "dried seaweed chip with sesame".


kawaionigiri 05-10-2009 02:26 PM

what's that??

kind of seaweed? or dry chilly?

RadioKid 05-10-2009 02:45 PM

It's dried seaweed (WAKAME) with sesame as described.

Be careful! It's very hard and sometimes hurts your mouth at inside.

Oh, do you mean EI-HIRE (Fin of Stingray)?

And you call such kind of stuff as beer food. I see. Thank you.

ししゃも
 
ししゃも; Shishamo (sometimes with roe)

Dried by the sunlight for preservation,

Grilled on fire,



Then served.



Once I introduced this shishamo to a girl from US. She said "it seems to be screaming... May I remove its head?". We allowed her to remove the head but she could not enjoy it.

歌舞伎揚げ
 
歌舞伎揚げ:kabukiage

Fried rice cake

RadioKid 05-11-2009 12:24 PM

柿ピー
 
柿ピー: 柿の種 with ピーナッツ; seeds of parsimmon with peanuts

"seeds of parsimmon" is not real seeds. they are rice cake coated by soy sauce.



In small package.



Every time I visited Germany, local people loved these packs very much because of its spicy taste.

Atakicat 05-11-2009 02:28 PM

Those all do seem really good, I may just have to try them out^^

And so do I:)

I guess not so difficult to find good Japanese snacks in Sydney, but Cairns is another story.

We have a few shops but very small and limited in selection.

I'd rather my son eat these instead of extra salty and oily Australian potato chips.

I had some green beans "Eta mume" (spelling) today at the Sushi train shop.

For dinner I had Agedashi Tofu, Ebi Fry, and special white fish of the day:)

Your photos are making me hungry, and missing Japan:ywave:

いか
 
烏賊:イカ;ika; squid

We eat squid as sashimi (raw) in Japan.

Also ika-no-maruyaki (grilled squid) is tasty with ginger.



Ika-no-Shiokara (fermented Squid) would be hard for foreign people.



Ika-no-kunsei (smoked squid) or ika-kun is my favorite.



Surume or Saki-ika(torn dried squid) is cheap and easy to keep at bottle side.



This is the squid just after dried (surume).


yuujirou 06-20-2009 01:21 PM

i personally prefer eihirei or ikura >.>''

seiki 06-20-2009 04:25 PM

Once I experienced live octopus on fire in Korea. I don't know what name they call the food because it was kind of party. the octopus was on the vegetable on a pan as shown below.



During the octopus suffer in the heat, a waitress came to cut his legs with scissors. I could not eat him because he gazed me.
