    Okonomiyaki- love the process of cooking it on the table.

  • Facebook User says:

    Kare raisu and/or futomaki. My mom made it all the time, and it’s still my favorite, if I can find it, or get around to making it myself.

  • Facebook User says:

    Natto!

  • Facebook User says:

    Okonomiyaki and sushi!

  • Facebook User says:

    Katsu Donburi

  • Facebook User says:

    The one thing I always ask for in the Christmas package from Japan. Or when like now my mom is visiting in Asakusa is orange the ones covered in azuke bean are ok. My avarice are the ones covered in the sweet soy sauce glaze. Yummmy!!!!!

  • Ken says:

    Unidon and katsudon.

  • Facebook User says:

    Too many to name. Okinawa soba would be up there though. Goya champuru. Tofu.

  • Facebook User says:

    Shishyamo…. I know, so oyaji right?

    • Facebook User says:

      My favorite…never Oyaji eating Shishyamo.
      My first encounter visiting grandma (now deceased) in Japan, single then she served me Shishyamo for breakfast, miso soup, rice and takuwan. I ate it with heavy delight didn’t like the taste, didn’t want to disappoint granny.
      It’s funny after she died I started to like the food she made.

    Mochi!

  • Facebook User says:

    Hiyayakko is my go to comfort food. It’s hard to name a favorite. My mom’s oden was delicious.
    I like Japanese food – a lot of the Americanized Japanese food is way too sweet for my taste.

  • Facebook User says:

    Furikake on some fresh hot rice?

  • Facebook User says:

    One of my favorites that I did not have this year is hiyashi chuka. Maybe next year ….

  • Facebook User says:

    My favorite food is gyoza. Tons and tons of gyoza!

  • Facebook User says:

    Oh, man. I love it all. Ramen, soba, udon, curry, gyoza, sushi, tonkatsu ….

  • Facebook User says:

    Aburi-salmon sushi yum!!

  • Facebook User says:

    There is a kotowaza that says “you can’t change 2000 years worth of history” and I accepted that and embraced it. Then I was able to eat a lot more delicacies. I will not eat motsunabe or hormone yakiniku but I have eaten a lot of other things that may be offensive to North American people…it’s a different country and different culture. Sometimes it’s a don’t ask don’t tell situation, too.

  • Facebook User says:

    I also like (basashi) and don’t anyone jump down my throat. I am a Kyushu girl and I have lots of family from Kumamoto and that’s where basashi is famous from. It may sound gross, but it isn’t bad at all. It is a very sweet meat and full of flavour. I would love to have it again sometime. I also love gyusashimi and it, too, is awesome. I haven’t had it often. It wasn’t tataki but it was pure sashi. Loved it. I had it a few years ago at a yakiniku yasan in Waikiki and it was great!

  • Facebook User says:

    Basashi is surprisingly GOOD! I held out forever cause culturally Muricans LURVE our horses but since living in Asia I’m thinking, screw that….it’s a different culture. Who said a horse is cuter, e.g. than a pig….or even smarter. Pigs can be cute AND smart but we eat them things.

  • Facebook User says:

    Okaasan’s yakimeshi-it was the best in the universe and I could eat it every single day. No one’s touched hers.

  • Facebook User says:

    Gyoza!!! Keep ’em comin’!

  • Facebook User says:

    Ramen…Curry Rice…Unagidon

  • Todd says:

    I love sushi of all sorts and eat it about once a week. We also love sukiyaki but save that for special occasions, especially New Year’s Day, to celebrate our Japanese heritage.

  • Facebook User says:

    Chawanmushi is such a treat for me! Mom would make it every time I was sick/ it was freezing outside. It’s so versatile and delicious.

  • Facebook User says:

    Oyako don

  • Facebook User says:

    I could eat omurice every day.

  • Alice says:

    Used to love ❤️ yakitori, oyako donburi, tonkatsu (actually ALL food in is really good) but since becoming pescatarian, I get my Japanese food fix from , furikake and ochazuke.

  • Facebook User says:

    Gyoza

  • Facebook User says:

    Gyoza….tofu!!!!

  • Clemente21 says:

    As you probably know, it’s difficult to narrow to one thing. When it’s cold outside nothing is better than a good bowl of ramen (udon or soba works too) and gyoza. When you get the chance to visit Japan try negitoro maki, which is a type of sushi. Maki is the rolled sushi with seaweed and toro is tuna belly (so there’s a lot of fan which has a LOT of flavor but fish fat is healthy fat, hah hah) and negi is Welsh onion I believe which just adds a little different flavor but it’s subtle.

    The best sushi is in Japan due to the freshness of the seafood. Also wagyu yakiniku (wa is Japan and gyu means beef and it is AKA Kobe Beef, at least here in the U.S.) is out of this world. Yakiniku just means grilled meat and is also known as Korean BBQ. This Korean style of grilling beef either on top of a gas grill or charcoal was invented in Japan by ethnic Koreans. In Korean they would normally cook their beef (bulkogi) on a half-moon hot plate. What I mean by that is it curves up towards you in the middle part of the pan and then the juices and fat drips toward the outer edges. I’ve heard some people call a Genghis Khan hotplate . You’ll see that half-moon pan in plenty of restaurants and homes too, in Japan and Korea.

    Sukiyaki, but love the basics too: somen, udon, & okonomiyaki! I stay away from the more exotic food.

  • Facebook User says:

    First thing I get when I arrive in Japan is ramen. It just seems to taste best there. 🙂
