A Lovely Japanese Home Cooked Lunch On A Lazy Sunday Afternoon
I was lucky enough to be invited to a luncheon hosted by my dear friend A's mother Hiro for a group of Japanese expats a while back. Apart from the two types of goheimochi (grilled rice cakes), most of those who attended also brought with them a plate or two of tasty home cooked Japanese dishes.
A lazy stroll through the suburb where A grew up followed after one of the best home cooked meals we have had in recent years.
The following are some of the lovely dishes we sampled and I will certainly recreate some of them so please stay tuned.
A colourful Japanese coleslaw of carrot, cabbage, corn and alfafa sprouts.
Hiro's stir fried Chinese cabbage with bacon and shitake mushroom, its utterly delicious and I am going to recreate this very soon!
A refreshing cucumber pickle with ginger and crab meat.
Lip smacking good braised pork ribs with black bean, shimeji and king oyster mushrooms.
