July 6th, Friday:
- Miso Soup (Daikon, Wakame, Green Onion)
- Iridori Stew (Chicken, Burdock, Bamboo Shoot, Onion, Carrot, Shiitake Mushroom, Konnyaku)
- Salt Broiled Boarfish
Rice is an important foodstuff without which we could not do. Not only do we eat rice, but rice flour is increasingly used in processed foods.
Iridori stew has a sort of thick Chinese-like sauce. I like the vegetables used in it, but I dislike the sauce’s texture. The boarfish was soft and tasty.
By the way, I ate English Curry packaged by the Hakodate restraunt Gotouken for dinner. It was crazy expensive–200 grams for like 500 yen or something–which was why bought it. I wanted to know why it was so expensive. It was tasty, but too spicy for me. I conjecture the reason it was so expensive is the first ingredient is fruit (apple and banana) and the second is beef. Which makes me wonder: did Englishmen really put fruit in their curry?? Or was it just because fruit and beef are by nature expensive and thus only Englishmen could afford them??
