One of my friends that are more of a gamer got to go to Japan for several weeks paid because of a work thing. SO JEALOUS! He went to American Village a lot.

Japanese Ramen and rice balls... I miss these things!

I spent two weeks in Japan and I was ruined for life. NC isn't the Japanese Foodie mecca it should be.(I wish) I have had good dishes in NYC. I must get back there soon.

I love sushi and Japanese curry rice! It is so delicious! Although it's not that healthy, I love me some takoyaki too. :)

Japanese food was just made an intangible UNESCO world heritage, so it'll be interesting to see what effect this will have, if any, on Japanese food or its popularity.

I made okonomiyaki last week, and that was a real winner in my house. I love inari sushi, it's my weekly treat after weigh-in. I have miso soup everyday for lunch.

If I could cook Japanese style food everyday, I would.

anything with salmon. Raw prefered, but I will eat seared and cooked as well. One of my favorite dishes is crispy fish, but it is hard to find restaurants willing to fry an entire fish with it's head on.

Sake works just as well as Mirin. I never seem to have mirin on hand so thank god for that, lol.

Inari sushi for the win! Especially with brown rice like they do it at Whole Foods, and a sweet sauce. Also oyako donburi (chicken + leeks + yummy broth with mirin so it's just slightly sweet over rice for the uninitiated) and unagi donburi. Mmmmmm. Love me some eel. Never thought I would say that before trying it, though.

Mmm, sushi... but not anything with nori. I'm not a fan of nori, really. Also a big fan of Soba, as well. :D

OOoooOOOO! Love the curry. *heart* My sis makes the BEST curry. I love ramen too! But I have to make my own broth. Those MSG filled packets are migraine filled packets of evil...

japanese curry is my favourite ever and this is the best recipe I tried-in fact all kevin's recipes look great. I'll be putting only the site address here cause you should look at the other recipes too.I don't eat it with rice , too much extra calories, the potatoes are enough for me and I used the curry mix available here but you should be able to find the real deal.

Definitely! I ALWAYS deviate from the original recipe, it's mainly the veggies I have in my fridge. Good luck!

That sounds awesome. I'll have to try that with some minor adjustments. I don't like cooked carrots and while I like the taste of onion, I can't stand the texture, so I'd have to leave those 2 things out.

Sorry I don't have any recipes to share!

My favorite! I make this at least once a month.

Japanese Stir-Fry Recipe #173942
The first thing I learned about Japanese cooking is that all the sauces were some combination of shoyu, rice vinegar, sugar, and mirin. This is a quick and easy meal that I made up. Shoyu is a Japanese soy sauce. It gives a much richer flavor than regular soy sauce, and tastes less salty. Mirin is Japanese cooking wine, made of rice wine. If you can't find any, just omit it, it will still taste wonderful.
by Abi Fae
30 min | 30 min prep
SERVES 8
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed (I substituted tofu, came out great!)
1 green bell pepper, diced
1small white onion, diced
4 carrots, cut in matchsticks
1 red bell pepper, diced
1large broccoli, cut bite size
1/4cup sesame oil
1/3cup shoyu
1/4cup rice vinegar
2tablespoons mirin
1tablespoon sugar
2teaspoons ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
Cut all of the meat and veggies, so they are ready to cook. I find that cutting the chicken while it is still half frozen makes it much easier!
Start your rice in a rice cooker or on the stove. The cooking time for the dinner is equivalent to the cooking time for rice.
Using a wok or large frying pan, heat sesame oil over medium-high. Add in the garlic. When the oil starts to sizzle, add in the shoyu, vinegar, mirin, sugar, and ginger. Mix well.
Add chicken. Cook until there is no pink at all. Chicken will have a rich brown color from the sauce.
Add in the veggies and cook until the rice is done.
If I am cooking for people who do not like crunchy veggies, I will steam all the veggies together in a separate pot while the chicken is cooking, then add the steamed veggies in with the chicken once it is cooked.
Serve over rice.
