Just noticed that I haven’t had Japanese food for a while. It’s like the caffeine for me now and if I haven’t had any in a couple of months, I feel dis-comfortable. LOL. Last Saturday, the weather was fine, the sun was out and I desperately wanted some Japanese food. Fortunately, my wife is a good cook in this cuisine and we had a good feast. From this post onward, I’ll also put some recipes and/or product reviews up for how to make basic Japanese food, from sushi to takoyaki and the list will keep growing in future with a separate cateogory on the website under recipes.
The menu for the night includes Sushi varieties, Takoyaki, Tonkatsu, soft shell crab and tempura SA king prawns and zucchini.
Tonkatsu – Deep fried pork cutlet, juicy and tasty.
Takoyaki – Famous Japanese street food. Recipe coming soon. Hot and tasty!
The Fried Stuffs – A platter with deep fried soft shell crab pieces and tempura prawns and veges
Deep fried soft shell crab – I liked soft shell crabs since I was still young as Dad used to catch them and lightly batter it and cook with deep frying. Very flavoursome, very crunchy and no shells are to be worried. 😀
Tempura SA king prawns and tempura zucchini (locally grown organic)
