My first couple of experiences with Josephine have been great. Both Tonjitu + rice balls and Karaage bento were sold out, and I got very positive reviews at both Josephine and Nextdoor.
This week is a Yoshoku week. Yoshoku is a Japanese style Western food, and it’s the core of the Japanese comfort food culture. If you go visit Japan, you’ll be stunned to see how many yoshoku restaurants are around in town.
Doria is one of the all-time yoshoku favorites. It’s basically rice gratin with bechamel sauce and cheese on top of the casserole. If you still don’t have an idea what it is like try my chicken doria through Josephine this week on March 1!
Also, hamburger steak is VERY popular. For most Americans salisbury steak might sound more familiar. If you ask Japanese kids if they like ham urger steak I could bet that 99% would say YES! So I decided to make a bento with a hamburger steak, with no-so-sweet teriyaki sauce and ponzu relish. How could it be more Japanese? 🙂 The bento will be available on March 3 through Josephine.
I hope you will enjoy the flavors of the Japanese comfort food Yoshoku at my kitchen!
