Imabari Yakibuta Tamago Meshi

Yakibuta Tamago Meshi

This is one of the soul food of Imabari City which is located Northern side of Ehime prefecture near the Seto Inlet. Though butadon (pork over rice) is very common in Japanese cuisine this is yet different than the other ones being served around Japan. In another blog I wrote about the Obihiro butadon and how amazing it tasted with the seasoning they put on the pork slices and the sweet sauce the glaze it with. For the Imabari's Yakibuta Tamago Meshi, the meat is prepared differently. They put braised pork over white rice then pour a generous amount of sweet sauce onto the pork and rice. Lastly they top it with 2 sunny side up eggs (often seasoned with salt and pepper). They way to eat this delicacy is to mix everything together (sauce, yolk and meat) and then savor each and every bite.

Muroran's Curry Ramen

Curry Ramen

So, I've dropped by Muroran, a city just 3 or so hours away from Sapporo by Limited Express train. However I was headed to Kushiro from Hakodate and thought it was a good idea to drop by Muroran just for their well known Curry Ramen. I've had Curry Ramen in different parts of Japan but have never heard of a place that is well-known for it aside from Muroran. I went to a restaurant near by the station to try this soul food which locals often eat. I can tell you that the flavour is definately different from other Curry Ramen I have had in other parts of Japan. If you lie curry then this is a must try because it doesn't taste like the normal curry cubes. The taste is stronger with spice but not as thick as the curry used for other dishes like curry rice or udon. If you drop by this region and have time I highly recommend you to stop by this area and check it out yourself!
