Although I’m Japanese, there are some Japanese foods that I cannot understand…😨
Please don’t laugh at them…some of these foods are delicious more than you think ever!
Today, I introduce “slightly” strange Japanese dishes.
“Yakisoba” means stir fried Chinese noodle, “Pan” means bread. Yakisoba bread is a bread with yakisoba in.
This is especially popular among boys.
Spaghetti pan (スパゲッティパン)
There is also spaghetti bread. This spaghetti is made with pasta that has been over boiled past 10 min at least and seasoned with ketchup. Awful…😱
In the past, my English boy friend said me, “Why do you put carbs in carbs? This is strange!”, But I know that there is a menu with toast sandwiched between toasts in UK, right?
Natto pasta (納豆パスタ)
Sometimes I think Japanese has gone too far future… This is natto (fermented soybean) pasta with raw egg.
I do not know this is tasty or not, but Japanese try to eat any foods with natto. We love natto😀
Monja yaki (もんじゃ焼き)
Soba meshi (そばめし)
This is also carbs + carbs.
It’s a mixture of fried rice with fried noodles.
This is the Osaka menu, but it is not popular in Tokyo…strange for Edokko like me.
Ogura buttered toast (小倉バタートースト)
This toast originated in Nagoya city. “Ogura” means “sweetened red beans”. We calle “Anko” or “An” also. It is often used in Japanese sweets.
The combination of Anko and butter is more tasty than I expected😃 There are also the toast, Ogura +Cream cheese, and Ogura + whipped cream.

We love raw egg.
“TKG” means Tamago-kake-Gohan. This means raw egg with soy sauce on rice.
I already explain raw egg on another page.
“Odorigui” means eating live seafoods while they are still aliving…
I have never seen it…scary…😨
I’ll introduce you any strange menus that come out.
