This week I have been mostly eating…

…Japanese food! 😀

Yes, it’s been a really good week for me, and now I want to share a little of that with you. I’ll be writing separately about a great Japanese restaurant I went to, but here are the home-cooked treats I’ve sampled this week.

I was invited to my friends’ house yesterday, and we ate a veritable feast of Japanese yumminess.

There was okonomiyaki (which we nicknamed “okonomiyaki pie” due to its thickness). It contained prawns, and was really good!

The okonomiyaki was just a starter. Then, we had soba noodles, which we put into soup.

We ate some mackerel with the noodles and soup, and added some spices.

Then today, randomly, my colleagues decided to have a Japanese lunch at work. One of my colleagues brought in some shiso leaves, so another colleague made shiso rice:

(Yes, shiso comes in both green and purple, which I didn’t know before!)

We also had inarizushi (the pockets came from the Japan Centre).

I donated some leftovers which my friend gave me last night – vegetables cooked in miso:

And, for dessert, there were homemade macarons! (Not Japanese, but very popular in Japan.)

My next task is to learn how to make some of this food myself… 😉
