I skipped breakfast and lunch, so on the way back I was super hungry. I stopped at Vegetarian Beast and got the 3-deli combo set with hamburg, curry, pickled soy meat and homemade bread ๐Ÿ˜‹

Eureka! I was able to reproduce ่ƒก็“œๆต…ๆผฌใ‘ (kyuri asa-zuke) = lightly pickled cucumber!

I didn't have any kombu, so I pickled using only rice vinegar and salt. I topped it with miso paste and stab it with a chopstick. The resulting snack is just like I remember eating at summer matsuri: salty, sour and umami with just the right amount of crunchiness ๐Ÿ˜‹

Lawson's microwavable food isn't too bad. This vegetable bibimbap should be , probably...

First attempt at cooking mentaiko pasta with grated daikon, onion and miso / lemon sauce and nori flakes ๐Ÿ˜‹

Un semplice contorno toscano, gustoso e saporito.

I bought ใ„ใ‚“ใ’ใ‚“ (common bean), and they taste great stir fried. Usually I see them dressed with ใ‚ดใƒž (sesame), but I used sesame oil and fresh chili.

Second attempt at making a Japanese salad. This time topped with tofu, hijiki, and the ginger / sesame sauce I was missing last time ๐Ÿ˜‹

of course it's

My first imitation attempt of a Japanese salad is ok but unconvincing.

Something with the dressing is off... probably because I used egoma oil instead of sesame oil, and wine vinegar instead of rice vinegar.

Bah, next time I'll just buy ready-made goma dressing from the supermarket and it will be perfect ๐Ÿ˜Ž

But I found something which is quite rare in Japanese supermarkets:

My friends cooked Japanese style golden curry (ใ‚ดใƒผใƒซใƒ‡ใƒณใ‚ซใƒฌใƒผ) with green quinoa and millet "rice" ๐Ÿ˜‹

I'm having lunch at The Bowl in Omote-Sando, and this is likely the very tastiest "healthy bowl" I've ever had in my entire life ๐Ÿ˜‹

Beneath the visible ingredients are layers of lettuce, kale and quinoa. The dressing is a mix of citrus juices, tumeric and sriacha.
