Obihiro Butadon

Obihiro Butadon

The Obihiro butadon is a famous local dish in the region of Tokachi in Hokkaido. Every butadon in the nation of Japan looks up to the butadon in Obihiro because that's where it was originated from. In this version of the butadon the slices of pork are marinated in a sweet sauce and grilled to perfection. You order according to how many slices of pork you want in your bowl of rice (usually the slices of pork you can order and written on the menu). Some shops like to decorate their pork slices with green peas while others chooses not to. I believe that the butadon tastes amazing with or without the peas on top of the sliced pork. Although there are very limited slices of pork on the bowl of rice the sauce helps out a lot in devouring the left over white rice. If you are open in trying new food and have a sweet tooth then I will definitely recommend this dish for you.

Kasu Udon

Kasu Udon

Kasu udon is an Osaka classic dish. When people hear the word Osaka, one might immediately think of takoyaki and okonomiyaki but never udon. However, udon is something really common in Osaka and most of the people here eat it nearly every single day. So why is it called "kasu udon"? We all know what udon means so I will not be covering that part but I will go into the meaning of "kasu". The Japanese word "kasu" means leftovers, however don't take this meaning the wrong way. This dish is a bowl of soup udon topped with spring onions and chopped up beef small intestine pieces. The small intestine pieces is sometimes fried before putting it into the udon. If you are up for a nice warm but cheap meal in Osaka then this is the food to go for.
