March 6th, Wednesday:
- Pork Rice Bowl (Pork, Onion, Bell Pepper, Shimeji Mushroom)
- Miso Soup (Daikon Radish, Carrot)
- Japanese-style Salad (Octopus, Cucumber, Wakame Seaweed, Imitation Crab)
- Kcal: 822
The condition of when someone or something is sought after by many people is said “hippari-dako (stretched octopus)”. This comes from the fact that when making dried octopus, their legs are pulled out in all directions to dry them.
I am not sure what was so Japanese about today’s salad, given it was dressed in mayonnaise, but it was full of crab-mayo deliciousness. That said, it wasn’t all that popular with the students. I think a lot of them were put off by the looks of it. Also, students who dislike cucumbers are surprisingly common.
