This is the Kara-Age I’m talking about.  Kara-Age is a Japanese style of fried chicken.  Typically marinated in soy sauce, mirin, sake, and ginger before patted in flour or potato starch and deep-fried.  It’s probably one of the most loved Japanese home cooking dishes.

This is another chicken dish we couldn’t resist.  Stir fried with veggies and peanuts in fish sauce.

This is the ultimate rice friendly dish.  Stir-fried pork belly and eggplants.

The typical Japanese meal is like seasoned dish in combination with plain steamed rice.  Rice with this dish, rice with that dish.  Some dishes go so great with steamed rice that I call them rice friendly.

Boiled dumplings.

Yum Woon Sen, Thai spicy noodle salad.

Sometimes she has and sometimes she doesn’t have in the menu.  Very spicy and sour with coriander flavor.

 

We always feel very complete with this food.
