  • I’m living off sushi and ramen! What are some alternatives?

    I’m tired of my staple foods now and want to sink my teeth into other Japanese foods. What should I try next?

    Hi Rajendra,

    You’re in luck, as Japanese cuisine is diverse and offers a lot more than just sushi and ramen. For a change of pace, try digging into a hearty bowl of “donburi”, a rice bowl dish topped with various ingredients like fish, meat, or vegetables. “Yakitori”, skewered and grilled chicken, is a popular street food that’s great for a quick snack or a full meal. For something comforting, “nikujaga”, a meat and potato stew, is a great home-style dish. “Okonomiyaki”, a type of savory pancake filled with different ingredients, and “takoyaki”, octopus balls, are both delicious and are specialties of the Kansai region. If you’re into noodles, switch up your ramen for “udon” or “soba”. Lastly, don’t miss out on trying “kaiseki”, a traditional multi-course meal that is an experience in itself. The options are endless, so happy eating!
