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.

Honezuki Dori

Honezuki Dori

Kagawa prefecture, Japan, also known as the country of udon. If you know sanuki udon then you have probably had their udon before. However, there is a hidden gourmet delicacy there that has nothing to do with udon. This great dish that locals devour is called "Honezuki Dori", which basically means chicken with bone attached. So you are probably wondering how it looks like well all I can tell you is think drumsticks. They have this unique style of cooking there drumsticks where the outside is crispy while inside still maintain tender and juicy. There are two types of chicken you can choose from. The first one is called "Oya-dori" (older chicken) and the other one is called "Waka-dori" (young chicken). The meat for the "Oya-dori" is chewy and juicy while for "Waka-dori" the meat is soft and tender but still juicy. So, at the end of the day it all depends what texture you want your meat to be like. Some people like chewier meat while others like soft and tender ones. Which ever meat it will be, it is absolutely worth all the way to come to Kagawa prefecture to just have udon and eat "Honezuki Dori".

Honezuki Dori (Oya-dori).  The cabbage is for dipping the delicious oil in remaining in the plate and chow down after you finish the chicken.
