Calling All Japanese Food Experts...

Sat May 22, 2004 7:29 am

I need your guys help. Yesterday, a fellow classmate of mine from South Korea brought in this Japanese sushi type food (that's what he called it).

It's not exactly sushi, but the idea is similar.

It basically was a rice ball with sesame seeds in it sogged in soy sauce and wrapped with what appeared to look like fried tofu. It looks as if it was wrapped with a thin layer of bread, but it is actually tofu and very soft.

Anyways, I absolutely loved it. However, I was unable to get the name of it.

Does anyone have any idea what I am talking about? If someone could provide names for it and provide pictures to correspond with it, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Regards

I think what you're talking about is inari.

Did it look something like this?

Yes, it looked just like that. That covering is the tofu. Inside it, it had rice with sesame seeds filled with soy sauce.

It was absolutely delicious.........

Thanks for your help.  Smile

I think I know exactly the stuff you're talking about, although I've never had it with sesame seeds - but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called.

There is a japanese girl works for the same company as me, and she often invites all the guys from the office round to hers for party's - the stuff you're talking about is a favourite among the guys.

If nobody has posted it out by Monday I'll ask her when I go into work, I'll be working tommorow but I doubt she will be.

Regards,
Gordon.

I bought inari sushi in tokyo thinking they were egg rolls... Big grin

It was the only sushi I really didn't like. The tofu tastes nasty.

Okonomiyaki is delicious! My Japanese friend Shion made some for a group of us two weeks ago. It was my first time having it, and I really enjoyed it. My best description would be a thick pancake made of cabbage, cheese, meat, and spices, topped with a sweet-ish sauce, seaweed, and tuna flakes. Very good! I would love to try the stuff in Japan.
