just a brief intro to japanese fast food from a weeb who used to live in japan. starting with the most common type of japanese fast food:
a bowl of rice with boiled beef strips & onions on top. usually about $2.50 - $3, more for additional toppings
chain restaurant found everywhere in japan. basic, simple restaurant with few options besides gyuudon.
another gyuudon chain restaurant found nearly everywhere in japan. they have a few more options other than gyuudon, and have several toppings available.
a little sweeter than Yoshinoya
Every thanksgiving I eat all of these traditional new world foods together and it's always amazing. Turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberries, pumpkin pie, squash... Yet it seems like every other day of the year these foods are largely forgotten.
How did they get ghettoized to a one or two (with Christmas) day a year holiday feast only?
It would by like if the Chinese only ate Chinese food on Chinese New Year or something. Bizarre.
p.s. It also seems wrong / sacrilegious to serve any non-native-american foods at Thanksgiving, although I don't think anyone has ever stated that explicitly. Just seems to be understood.
Idk, I eat a lot of those foods throughout the year, but not all on one day, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I roast turkeys on my grill's rotisserie probably once every month and a half or so, and I regularly eat baked sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and other side dishes that I also make at Thanksgiving. I think the only things I don't normally eat outside of Thanksgiving is the pumpkin pie (I don't eat a lot of sweets), and cranberry sauce. Although, I would eat more cranberry sauce if I could get fresh or frozen cranberries out of season, because it goes so well with so many meats and also with cheese and crackers. I'm not a huge fan of canned cranberry sauce.
Cheap cuts of chicken make the best pie. Try it for yourself.
30 ml (2 T) oil
600 g chicken gizzards
2 red onions, sliced
120 g smoked pork rashers, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
120 g mushrooms, sliced
300 g chicken hearts
250 g chicken livers
15 ml (1 T) flour
1 bay leaf
15 ml (1 T) sugar
300 ml chicken stock
salt and pepper
250 g puff pastry
beaten egg, for glazing
Preheat oven to 200 °C.
Heat oil in a pot over medium heat and add the chicken gizzards in batches until browned. Add the onions, pork and garlic. Continue cooking until the onions are soft.
Add the mushrooms, chicken hearts, livers and stir in the flour. Cook for 2 minutes. Season well and stir in the bay leaf, sugar and stock. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Season and cool.
Put the chicken mixture in a pie dish. Roll out the pastry to make a lid and attach to the dish, making sure the edge is sealed. Cut a steam hole in the centre and glaze with egg.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 170 °C and continue cooking for another 10 minutes or until the pastry is golden. Cover the pie with foil if it browns too quickly.
stop right there

When did it become cool to market coffee exactly like craft beer?
>a fine craft coffee
>draft ice cold brew coffee on tap
>nitro cold brew
"nitro" means they injected nitrogen into the coffee so it can form a thick foam head when poured from a tap, just like beer.
Who actually enjoys this shit?
Coffee tastes absolutely nothing like beer.
Oh hey look, it's coffee concentrate, except it looks like beer!
Only cool kids will get this meme
Hey. Im looking for a book a I saw back in 2011. It's about a restaurant, it's fiction, but I can't remember the title. It was paperback, so probably from'08-'10. before you say, go to /lit/, i would also like to get a quick tab on humanities majors whose degrees didn't work out and they've been line cooking for the past 5-10-15 years. i'm a decade in 2018.
Hey ck, I'm gonna be doing a cooking stream with a focus on baking on Sunday, and was wondering if you guys had anything you'd like to see made or had any ideas for the stream.
I'll be trying to make a few things that are basic to teach new people how to make stuff but am open to suggestions of all skill levels.
Thanks in advance,
Had this catfish soup. How does this compare?
Also sticky dumplings filled with marinated dried shrimp with fish sauce dip sauce.
Just looking at my KFC
How do I make a great sea urchin ceviche?
buy meat on clearance. like old steaks. salt, buy crushed red pepper, spice rack power, jasmine, leafs, all sorts of shit.
when you get home cover meats in spices, anything and everything. then case it in a layer of salt. wrap them up and store in a cool dry area, like refridge or basement.
can last for a year or more if frozen.
when you are ready, wash salt and other shit off, season to taste and cook.
How much do you save on clearance? it's not like you're really saving. You'e sacrificing a bit of flavor and freshness for money. Isn't it worth it to just pay a bit more and know you're getting fresher shit?.
Any tips on making a smoothie with leafy greens? I've got an arugula-kale-spinach mix, and I'm concerned about how well it will blend.
