Whenever my friends have no idea what to have for dinner, I will sneakily and shamelessly suggest Japanese cuisine because fun fact number 2 – I love Japanese Food!
I don’t remember when exactly did Japanese Food came about to become one of my favourite cuisines. It could have started off with sushi which my Aunt would buy for us from the supermarkets back when we were young. As a kid and even now, it is fascinating to see balls of rice topped with colourful ingredients. My favourite is the tamago (egg) sushi for its bright yellow and the sweetness of the egg. While it is not exactly too difficult to make your own sushi ( I actually tried it 3 years ago and made my own tamago sushi), the number of steps to make it however is just too tedious whereby I would rather get it from the supermarket. Gratitude for those who cook full time!
Back at my previous job, I would have Japanese food every other day. Not that I eat at Japanese restaurants all the time. Rather, there are various options available. For instance, there are two dingy Japanese eateries near the office, one serves a delicious marinated salmon sashimi don (rice bowl in Japanese) and the other is managed by a Japanese home cook. There is also the supermarket with its sushi, onigiri and bento boxes options. One of the perks of my previous job, the many food options available.
Hence, in my defence, I didn’t really mean to suggest Japanese food to my friends every other time that we meet, it is just harder to have Japanese food now that I am working from home. So friends, please make it easier for me next time, just suggest Japanese food so that I feel less guilty! Haha.
