Nerikiri”watermelon” is a kind of Japanese traditional cake which is made by sweet bean paste. Nerikiri sweet is supposed to delight the eye as much as the palate. It melts in your mouth easily.

Gyuhi mochi cake”water jar” is also a Japanese traditional cake. Gyuhi is a softer variety of mochi, and both are made from either glutinous rice or from glutinous rice flour. This water jar sweet is expressive of a wake and a maple leaf float on the surface of water. They are unbelievably beautiful and artistic!

Home made TACO RICE

TACO RICEe-01

Taco rice is a very popular dish in Okinawa. It’s tacos with the tortilla replaced with rice. Pile spicy ground meat, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes on top of the rice and you’re done. Recently you can buy ready-made ground meat in a pouch for easy to make taco rice.

TACO RICE-02

I tried making it myself. I didn’t have any cheese, so I tried putting a half-boiled egg on top. It was really good!
