Doteni

Doteni

The doteni is the Nagoya version of doteyaki (Osaka famous B class gourmet). Although both doteni and doteyaki are sweet and the colours look the same, the sauce is made from different ingredients. In this post I will be focusing on the comfort food of Nagoya, the doteni. Doteni is a dish where they simmer ingredients like daikon, beef innards and eggs to name a few; in a sweet Nagoya special Hatcho miso sauce. It is usually finished off with chopped scallions on the top and served as a la carte at izakayas. If you like sweet meat dishes then this is a must try the next time you visit Nagoya!

Miso Katsu

Miso Katsu

Like all other parts of Japan, Aichi people are also fascinated with pork and what is a better way to eat pork than deep-frying them into cutlets like the rest of Japan? Now, here is the catch. Unlike other parts of Japan where they either serve it in tonkotsu sauce on the side or smother the whole dish with tonkotsu sauce, they dump a sweet miso sauce on to the cutlets. They bring out the deep-fried pork cutlets and the sweet miso sauce separately and pour the sauce on for you to your liking. If you want more sauce you can ask for more just by asking the servers. Although deep-fried pork cutlets isn't my favourite thing to eat in Japan, I do like the miso katsu. I find that the crispiness of the pork cutlet and the hot sweet miso sauce the pour on afterwards creates this perfect harmony and when you bite into it you can taste the meat, the breading and the sweetness from the miso sauce all in one bite. Not to mention that the miso sauce goes so well with the rice! If I ever visit Nagoya again, I would go and have it every day!
