Sticky Slimy Yum Yum
In Japanese food culture, they frequently consume sticky and slimy foods. Healthy foods as they quote.
It was one of my cultural shock when I first experienced it. It was like...
"Urgh~ what the hell do they eat this." It was like swallowing run at the nose into my mouth, and worse, force it to down into my throat.
However, 2 years later after the shock, I decided to challenge these sticky slimy foods again.
Ok, maybe this time I was in good luck... The way how it prepared was really great. Instead of the eerie sticky slimy texture... I was more impressed with the combination. It was so Japanese.
I felt so "healthy" after gulping that bowl of rice with the slimy thing down into my stomach.
I think I am enchanted ever since then.
Give me any kind of sticky slimy foods... Lady's finger, Natto, Yamaimo... I will hentam them like a piece of cake.
Ha!!! Sometimes, I even go for double slimy...
The photo above shows a bowl of rice topping with slimy Japanese yam and slimy Namenoko mushroom. It is super healthy, yummy and full of nutritions. My only complain, the green sprout spoil the harmony. :(
^_^ How about you? Do you like sticky and slimy foods?
