5 Oishii Japanese Cuisines that will take you to the Land of the Rising Sun

From the new variety of anime series on Netflix, to the number of Japanese grocery marts and eateries in town, it’s clear that Singaporeans love Japan. In fact, ask anyone where they’d like to go once travelling becomes safer again – there’s a high chance they’d say “Japan”. 

You may not be able to fly to the Land of the Rising Sun now, but you sure can transport your taste buds there! Here are 5 most-loved Japanese cuisines, and where you can get an awesome discount for them.

What do you get when you mix an Onigiri (rice ball wrapped with seaweed) with a western sandwich? An Onigirazu! Succulent slices of meat, fluffy egg and sometimes fresh vegetables are folded between fragrant rice, something like a delicious flat Asian burrito. 

Try the luncheon meat or the Char Siu rendition, 10/10 recommended!

Springy ramen noodles in a piping hot bowl of rich broth. Slurp it up and taste the umami bursting forth! It’s no wonder the soup is so flavourful; it’s made from boiling pork bones for hours on end, until all the goodness and collagen from the pork turns the stock a satisfying, creamy consistency.  

Love to try something different? Kanada-Ya offers spicy yuzu ramen, as well as truffle ramen to shake things up! 

#5: Tempura

The Japanese have mastered the secret to making vegetables taste good. After being coated in smooth batter and deep-fried, the most mundane of vegetables become glorious. Crunchy and slightly salty on the outside, and soft and juicy on the inside, the tempura is a hot favourite amongst the young and old. 

For kids who hate their veggies, this may be a starting point!
