Food Friday: turning Japanese

sizzling tofu with chicken and mushrooms

I love Japanese food! From sushi and sashimi, teriyaki to tepanyaki, kakiage and tempura, ramen, salads to donburi, i love 'em all. Aside from it's elegant and minimalist presentation, traditional Japanese diet is no doubt one of the healthiest in the world. My friend/dinner buddy is not very fond of Japanese food so we seldom go to a Japanese restaurant when we're together. But I was able to convince her last week to eat at Rai Rai Ken as I was craving for sizzling tofu. I also ordered gyoza, a Japanese-style dumpling, and this Seafood Hotpot...and S liked it. Unfortunately, my friend's favorite foods are spicy spare ribs, grilled pork ribs, lechon macau---all tasty but potentially deadly. So I'm teaching her to eat sashimi, sushi and tofu. Wish me luck!

yummy!!! i agree, one of the healthiest dishes around!
my son loves eating Japanese food (he likes the ramen and the raw salmon), so when we go out and everyone's hungry, expect us to be at the nearest Jap resto within the vicinity! LOL

thanks for playing again, Luna
Happy FF
