Without a doubt what we miss most from Japan is the food. In California there were several decent and affordable Japanese restaurants where we could occasionally indulge our cravings, but here in England we haven’t found any. Also, San Francisco’s Japantown was a good place for us to go and buy Japanese groceries for some delicous homecooking, but the Asian supermarkets in Manchester sell predominantly Chinese products and Japanese products are far and between.
Luckily, some regular English supermarkets do sell some Japanese items, like nori, panko, shoyu, mirin, shortgrain rice and curry roux. Therefore, Yasu is able to create some yummy Japanese dishes at home. Favorite dish among our friends and family seems to be Japanese Curry Rice, and they often ask Yasu how he made it. Eager to teach his friends how to make this rather simple dish at home, he made the short video below. Now anyone can enjoy Japanese Curry Rice at home!
