Natto a fan of snot beans?
I wonder what would happen if you mix up some Natto with Durian?
So RUDE! Please apologize to Natto-san. And add obligatory crown of raw egg.
BTW, have you tried the steak breakfast at Fukagawa yet? Just wondering if it’s worth it or just stick with the fish?
Nothing better than snot beans complimented by the smell of dirty feet.
THANK YOU for this! I wasn’t aware of Ise-Shima, and have often yearned for this kind of a breakfast set-up again ever since having one in Banff, Canada decades ago.
Fukagawa is tops in my book, and regarding the steak, while I haven’t had it, my dining companions have enjoyed it when they’ve ordered it.
Now I’ll have to try Ise-Shima sometime…
more for me, I guess!
I enjoy the taste of durian, but the fresh ones smell from like 100 yards away. But natto, you can have my portion all day, every day.
Sorry I haven’t. This Japanese-style breakfast is an occasional thing. For me, it’s a nostalgic moment that takes me back to my grand parents home in Japan.
The various dishes served for breakfast were so foreign to me in that context. And the broiled/grilled fish was everpresent. Think of it as parallel to bacon or ham in traditional American breakfasts. I’ve personally never had steak in this context.
I never knew I needed AYCE Japanese breakfast in my life until today.
Some higher end breakfast buffets in Japan are off the chain. All-you-can-eat musk melon, playeh!
and green salad too (for breakfast)!!!
I had no idea such a thing exists, an AYCE Japanese Breakfast.
This is like knowing Berenstein Bears is actually Berenstain Bears (look that up!).
Or Luke, I Am Your Father.
Or Steve Martin in The Jerk who realizes he is not black.
WTH! I need this in my life
Wow, that sounds amazing! Is it at certain fancier hotels in Tokyo? Thanks.
So happy to hear one can get Japanese breakfast in Los Angeles! I love Japanese breakfast. The first time I had it was at. Four Seasoms Hotel, and I loved having fish and miso soup and pickles for breakfast. Now, if I see it on a room service menu, I always order it.
I’ve never gotten an egg, though. Is that a normal part of Japanese breakfast?
Tokyo Station Hotel
Raw egg on natto on rice. Enough gooshy sliminess to choke even a snail.
Hotel food in Japan is actually pretty darn good. Even the buffets are really good.
Yum. I have heard of that, but not a fried or poached egg. Do you think it’s for the Americans? Because we freak out over raw eggs?
