Japanese Breakfast

At the heart of most meals are three basic bowls: rice, soup and a main dish. A traditional breakfast will contain a bowl of steamed rice, miso soup and grilled fish. They will be accompanied by side dishes of rolled omelet (tamagoyaki), pickles (tsukemono), natto and salad. The typical traditional breakfast beverage is green tea. Japanese rice is made with white short grain Japanese rice, which has a consistency that differs from long-grain rice. The essential quality is its stickiness or glutinousness. This is usually sold in Western supermarkets as either short-grain rice or sushi rice. Western style breakfasts are also very popular now in Japan and these usually consist of toast, bacon or sausage, boiled or fried eggs and hash browns or chips. Breakfast cereals are also increasing in popularity.

  1. Wow that looks absolutely delicious. I'll be moving to Japan in a few months, and I'm looking forward to stuffing my face. However I've heard natto is not for the faint of heart lol, but I'll try anything once.

  2. The traditional Japanese breakfast is quite healthy and is low in fat but can be high in salt. Natto is an acquired taste and there is no middle ground. You either love it or hate it. I do recommend trying it and don`t let the smell of natto put you off.
