Are you Craving Japanese Comfort Food?
There is a genre called “Yoh-shoku” in Japanese cuisine. It’s Japanized European food, using ingredients that are not used in traditional cooking, such as butter, milk, cream and cheese.
Are you surprised? Intrigued? Then give it a try to one of the most popular yoshoku dishes – Doria and Menchi Katsu.
Doria is a delicious rice gratin–and the ultimate Japanese comfort food! This doria is chock-full of ingredients and brimming with flavor. It has 4 kinds of cheese, (Gruyere, Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Parmesan) with crimini mushrooms, green peas, onion and chicken. All coated in a wonderful bechamel sauce. A perfect entree by itself. Or enjoy it as a side dish. Perfect for these cold late winter evenings! Serves two to three adults.
Menchi Katsu for th is hamburger patty made of beef and/or pork and onion, breaded and deep fried. It’s a great pub food and can be enjoyed as a satisfying entree at dinner. I am offering menchi katsu made from scrach in the form of a bento. Take the bento home and just enjoy. No dish cleaning is required.
