Pepper Lunch

Pepper Lunch

Pepper Lunch is a famous restaurant chain in Japan which serves meat, mostly steaks. The brand was first established in Tokyo and since then has grown into a international fast food brand for steak. You can find Pepper Lunch in most big cities in Japan, however the further away from Tokyo you get, the harder it is to find a Pepper Lunch. Many Japanese people who goes to the restaurant for their cheap steak cuts. However, you have to remember that the Japanese diet is different from those outside of Japan so the portions are really small and might not be enough for you. Their most famous signature dish however is their beef pepper rice, which is rice served in an iron plate and topped with thin slices of beef covered in their signature pepper sauce. Not only is it nutritious because you get the meat, rice, corn and green onions but also cheap at 700 yen (tax not yet included). You can get a larger portion of rice if you add an extra 100 yen. They have a 900 yen version of it with extra meat but who really knows how much they add in it? If you ever come across a Pepper Lunch anywhere around the world and is craving for meat, it might be a good idea to head in for some steak and meat that would not hurt the wallet, especially in Japan.

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!

Ochazuke

Ochazuke

Ochazuke is a common dish served all over Japan. It is a very traditional dish where you have either tea, dashi or hot water poured over rice. There are different types of ochazukes with different toppings. The one I had here had red seabream from Ehime prefecture of Japan. Ochazuke is most famous in Kyoto because this dish is usually served after a meal. So if someone serves you ochazuke in Kyoto, that means they are asking you to leave.

Taiwan Ramen

Nagoya's B-class Gourmet

The Taiwan ramen, a Nagoya classic was invented by a Taiwanese restaurant owner. The dish has nothing to do with the country Taiwan nor the ingredients being in the ramen just to be clear. So, what is Taiwan ramen? This ramen is a super spicy soup noodle dish with green onions, chives, minced meat and a lot of garlic in a spicy soy sauce based broth. At some restaurants you may pick the level of spiciness as well as how much garlic you want in your ramen. Here, I had the full experience with normal spice and regular amount of garlic. The soup is spicy but very light and easy on the stomach. The minced meat, chives and green onions add another dimension of flavour to the soup and noodles when you mixed them all up together. It also enhances the whole bowl of noodle itself by balancing the textures with the softness of the minced meat, chewiness of the noodles and crunchiness of the chives and green onions. Then you add on that garlicky smell with that awesome hot and spicy broth is like a perfect match made for each other! If you ever drop by Nagoya, this is a must try for all you ramen and spicy lovers!

Katsu Meshi

B-Class Gourmet of Kakogawa city, Hyogo Prefecture

Katsu meshi is a comfort food of Kakogawa city in Hyogo prefecture. It is a side of deep-fried beef cutlet covered in a demi-glace sauce served with a side of rice. The demi-glace sauce here is not the sweet kind you find in most places around Japan but a much more savoury kind which resembles a little bit like gravy. If you ordered a set meal or a teishoku it will usually come with a side of salad and miso soup. So if you are in this region of Hyogo and want to try something different then this is a filling dish to try!
