Chawanmushi Recipe (Japanese Steamed Egg Custard/茶碗蒸し This is a special post to my readers who have requested for a chawanmushi recipe. Chawanmushi or steamed egg custard (茶碗蒸し) is a popular Japanese dish, one that is mostly ordered as an appetizer at Japanese restaurants. From the name of this dish in Kanji 茶碗蒸, I believe chawanmushi is originally a Chinese dish, but has since been perfected by Japanese chefs. The Chinese version of steamed egg custard or 蒸水蛋 is a lot simpler, but not as tasty as chawanmushi, in my honest opinion. The reason is very simple: chawanmushi is loaded with treasures that are buried at the bottom of the steamed egg custard while the Chinese version is usually plain! Plus, the use of dashi stock and sake are great seasonings for an otherwise plain steamed egg taste.

Viens Manger à la Maison Japanese Beef Shabu Shabu Hot Pot recipe My first experience eating Shabu Shabu was a pretty funny one. Our family had just moved back to Tokyo for the second time and I was about thirteen years old. My parents had taken me out to eat Shabu Shabu at a beautiful, very traditional Japanese restaurant where we sat in our own private tatami room. I had tried Sukiyaki many times (similar ingredients, totally different dish), Mom prepared it for us often, but Shabu Shabu was a dish that was totally new to me and this was my first time experiencing it. When our Servers, four women all dressed in gorgeous silk Kimonos, entered the room they were carrying two huge platters covered in raw meat (raw meat ???), tofu, assorted vegetables and a big pot of steaming liquid that they placed on top of a tabletop gas burner.
Hambaagu or hambaagaa: Japanese hamburgers As promised, here is my recipe for making Japanese style hamburgers or hamburger steaks, one of the quintessential yohshoku or Japanese Western-style dishes. They are called hanbaagu (though they are sometimes called hambaagaa, but that variation usually refers to the kind that comes sandwiched inside a bun) in Japan, and are very popular for lunch or dinner, and are eaten as a side dish to rice (okazu) in Japanese homes. In fancier restaurants that specialize in yohshoku, they might be eaten with a knife and fork, but at home they’re eaten with chopsticks.
