Thinking of Japanese Food

Today I had some Japanese food in our cafeteria. The food tasted good, but it really did not seem too Japanese. So, tonight I am thinking about some real Japanese food.

okonomiyaki, savory pancake, osaka, japanese foodI am thinking of this meal I had in Osaka last year. I had okonomiyaki which are savory pancakes. These were really good. They are sprinkled with bonito flakes which are moved around by the steam coming off the pancakes. It was quite interesting.

Shabu-Shabu - Vegetables - Mushrooms - Japanese CuisineI am also thinking of some Shabu-Shabu which I had during another trip to Tokyo. Shabu-Shabu is cooked in a hot pot filled with broth. Above you see the vegetables that will be cooked. There are several types of mushrooms, vegetables and noodles.
