Japanese Sweet Fried Tofu and Ginger Mushroom Rice Bowl










Ingredients are really important in simple cooking. 

I used King Trumpet Mushrooms, maitake, and shimeji mushrooms. You could use any variety you like, I would stay away from shitake though because they can be so hard to chew, they aren't best for the soft textures in the rice bowl. 

Here are my favorite condiments:


It's not REALLY rice seasoning, but I am SO addicted to this stuff. It's probably the MSG.
They make a blue package type too, the seaweed flavor is stronger in that one. Get the Green.

That's right, market it to children and beer drinkers. 


BEST Soy EVER






I DONT like this stuff. It's to alcoholic and not enough sweet or aromatic


This seems ok

Southeast Asia





Welcome to Thailand!

This is what driving was like on my trip, crammed in the back seat of a van, with my sweaty family. This is literally the 1st photo I took on the trip.

I went to Southeast Asia in May. I got a bit overwhelmed with my 300GB of photos.

Oops.

I've decided I'm going to try to post at least 1 photo per day, until I'm done. Keep an eye out!

Here are a few more to tickle your fancy...



Dragon Fruit



Rambutan












Mangosteen

Every day it seemed I got to try a new fruit. Can't complain about that.
