Hello everyone and welcome to my very first post!
Since I'm a massive fan of Japanese culture and I'm in love with their cuisine, I chose my all time favourite Japanese foods.
So...here you are~

🍥Top 5 Japanese foods🍥

05. Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き)

fun fact: “okonomi” literally means “to one's liking”

A popular pan fried food that consists of batter and cabbage.

I love this dish because it's so fun making it! In most of okonomiyaki restaurants costumers make their own meal, given the ingredients to cook it themselves. That's why you can choose how many and which toppings you want! It's good if you have an allergy or just don't really like a specific ingredient.
I usually go with my friends and, since we're not cook masters, we always end up messing the whole thing - but believe me, it'll be delicious anyway.

04. Dorayaki (どら焼き)

Dorayaki consist of sweet bean paste sandwiched between two pancake patties.

They're...too delicious ( ̄ω ̄) they aren't big so I occasionally buy some to eat them on my way home.
You don't have a thing for bean paste? Don't worry, modern variations may be full with other fillings, such as whipped cream and green tea flavored one.

03. Ramen (ラーメン)

fun fact: ramen are inexpensive and ideal for budget travelers

A noodle soup dish that was originally imported from China and has become one of the most popular ones in Japan. Ramen restaurants, or ramen-ya, can be found in every corner of the country and produce countless regional variations of this plate.

ramen types (from left above): miso, shoyu, tonkotsu and tsukemen

I love miso type the most: flavored with soybean paste with thick, curly and chewy noodles. Try it and you'll fall in love.

02. Onigiri (お握り)

They're rice balls commonly wrapped in nori seaweed, lightly seasoned with salt and often contain a filling (one of the most populars is tuna).
In Japan you can find them everywhere - even at convenience stores.

My favourite ones are

  • grilled soy sauce with sesame
  • ...and salmon :3

Not everyone knows that even the nori seaweed is eatable; actually it's quite enjoyable, so make sure to eat that too!

01. Takoyaki (たこ焼き)

My all time favourite Japanese food! It was the first one I tried and honestly I'm feeling way too attached to it. I just...love this food.
Although you can buy them in restaurants, this really is street food – and it’s as good as it gets!

Takoyaki are basically small balls of fried octopus cooked in a sphere of wheat flour batter.
You can sit down and pick them off one by one – or even keep walking down the street. I once eat it all in once and my tongue burned for days. So be warned, they can be pretty hot when they’ve come straight off the mould!


Okay, this is the end of my first post, hope you enjoyed it!
