What's your take on Japanese food from what you're seen in anime?
I never even tasted Ramen, yet all the other stuff. They look hella delicious though...
Far better than the real thing.
Their curry is greatly oversold it makes me question whether their tastebuds are functional.
>>194298469How does that not give you salmonnella
>>194298469Looks like it's so bad that noodles is depicted as the best food ever.
overhyped and overrated. they don't taste good irl actually.
The food of this country is not very good.
>>194298755Hot rice cooks the egg. Also don't be a pussy.
>>194298886>Hot rice cooks the eggDamn how hot is the rice, then? But I guess that makes sense, I always wondered why they'd just crack a fresh egg over rice like that. Still seems like the texture would be a bit too slimy.
They're hypocrites. Calling other countries' food not good while they also have the worst food in the world.
>>194298469>rice with anythingDelicious.t. totally not asian
>>194298469the egg like that is pretty good on steaming rice, just use salt though, not onions sauce
Japanese food overall is pretty good. Japanese curry and chicken karaage are the only foods I would call gross.
>>194298755how does eating rare meat not give you taenia saginata?
>>194298469>riceSorry, I'm white
>>194298790At least it's better and not as disgusting as british food.
Does anyone here actually enjoy natto?
>>194298755Raw Egg is perfectly safe to eat unless it's got some shitty chemically-stripped shell. That, and the rice is hot enough that it slight cooks it anyways.
>>194299081Have you ever eaten actual british food? or are you just playing off a stereotype?
>>194299088nips and cattle love it
>>194299045I disagree completely.The curry, okonomiyaki and fried foods are great. But dons, ramen and sushi are overhyped, it's just bland stuff that relies on adding a ton of extra sauces to make somewhat tasty. And then you have disgusting stuff like natto.
>>194298469>raw meat>rice without baked potatoes absolutely disgusting >>194299070not that guy, but I only eat meat well done. If you don't enjoy the taste of crunchy overcooked crust you're a wild animal
>>194298566Ramen in general is nothing special. I like Japanese food, myself, but one thing that Japanese like to exaggerate in anime isn't how the food looks, but the volume. Their portions are fucking tiny. I'm a SEANigger and I tell you, it's thrice the price for a third the content.
>>194298469There's a couple pretty good ramen places near-ish where I live. I've also liked every recipe I've tried making at home.I need to get a decent fucking rice cooker, though. Every time I get one of those Aroma/B&D cookers that shit breaks in about 5-9 months every goddamn time.
>>194299088Vegemite of Australia.>>194299165I was at Himeji castle and they had this dish that was literally a fish ball stick covered in cheese and it was the tastiest food I've ever eaten in my entire life.
>>194298469>Japanese foodas someone who has had it plenty of times IRL, it's mostly bland seafood shit.
>>194298469I ate picrelated and it's nothing special.
>>194299234>includes hong kongOboy
>>194299198>Their portions are fucking tiny. I'm a SEANigger and I tell you, it's thrice the price for a third the content.Every Ramen place I've been to in America has pretty good portions, but that might just be America.
>>194298469Mostly bland, nothing is ever sweet or spicy to the extent that I'm accustom. Super spicy that you probably can't eat it to Japanese would be something like Tabasco sauce levels of heat. Those episodes where japanese curry looks like lava are a joke because the hottest japanese curry is still milder than the most mild Thai curry. Their sweets are about the extent of eating an ice cream cone with no ice cream or cheerios. Also Japanese tend to have bad teeth so they avoid eating sweet things. In Japan it's more custom to eat natural things that have strong flavors than adding a lot of seasoning. What seasonings they do add to things are very minor and usually just used to enhance the flavor of what the main dish is. It's like how in america if you get a teriyaki steak you expect it to taste strongly of teriyaki. In japan it's simply given a quick dip in sauce and grilled leaving no strong flavor from the sauce.
>>194298469Sushi and ramen are bretty good in real life.
>>194298790I knew this'd get posted, fucking bongs
>>194299234Uhhh UKbros?Why does America have more Michelin Stars than you?
>>194299291>tfw we'll never have a gordon ramsay anime
I don't understand the Japanese obsession with putting mayo on everything.
>>194299178>>rice without baked potatoesWho the fuck eats rice with baked potatoes? That's a fucking abhorrent combination. It's a starchy grain with pure fucking starch. Why in the fuck would you ever go that?
>>194299237I mean there's some hidden nice stuff here and there. But of the japanese food items that are best known in the west, a lot are very bland.
>>194299383Because someone likes it? Your post reminded me of people who eat chicken with red meat. Fucking disgusting, never mix different types of meat, faggots.
>>194299383starch is good for your health
>>194298469Their usual stuff is surely better and has more variation than our usual stuff such as meat + fries, pizza etc.t. europoor
>>194298950In Japan and other develpped countries it's actually perfectly safe to eat raw eggs. The misconception that raw eggs are inherently dangerious comes up every thread about this because many 4chan users live in non-developed countries where fresh raw egges are dangerous and give salmonella.
>>194299227never heard of them though black puddings are pretty good
>>194299365what does it work out to per capita?
>>194299585>many 4chan users live in non-developed countries>source: my ass
>>194298950I think an egg white coagulates at around 60 degrees Celsius.
>>194299674This board is full of spics.
It's not so much that they're raw or cooked, but who the hell eats eggs when they contain so much cholesterol? Especially in OP's gif they eat the yolk.
>>194298469I just wonder what the local pricing is like. Jap restaurants where I am aren't cheap.
>>194298469Chinese food > Japanese food > Junk food
>>194299395He has a point. Complain to the chef there and then if it's not right. And certainly don't expect someone to be able to judge a steak from just a grainy photograph.But most of all don't order a steak to be well done then complain it's well done.
>>194298755Salmonella from raw eggs is just a hold over meme nowadays, like trichinosis in pork.
>>194298755Why do people never ask this about sunny side up? The yolk is still basically raw.
>>194299711aren't they all chicanos living in america? why would mexicans even have internet access?
>>194299234Japan gets a five-star handicap because a Nip discovered umami.
>>194299585>>194299099These are lies.https://www.cdc.gov/features/salmonellaeggs/index.htmlThe bacteria is in the egg-laying chickens and transferred to the eggs before the shells even form. Cleanliness of the egg-handling process is not the source of the problem.
>>194299381That might be something they picked up from the Germans. Germans love mayo, you have to ask for catsup for fries if you're there and want that, because mayo is what's provided.
>>194299790when did people start calling savory umami anyway
>>194299856By classifying the savory taste as something different than umami.
>>194299856I never even heard the term until Shokugeki so blame that anime.
Fuck salmonella, you shouldn't eat raw eggs because they look like boogers and that's terrible.
>>194298469What the deal with the Japanese and pancakes? It's a very basic food, but they just love the shit out of them.
>>194299925umami and savory are literally the same thing i think they just started calling it umami to be pretentious
>>194299781I thought your president gave them a boot already
>anime girls always wet their panties over dessert buffets>finally find one in my city>costs around $50 per person>have 2-3 items before I get sick, and those few items weren't even amazing
>>194298755Eating eggs doesn't give you salmonella unless they're some shitty-ass eggst. former /fit/fag who drank eggs daily
>>194300010I thought so too in 2016, still gonna vote for him though
>>194299978Except that savory is a specific flavoring, whereas umami is an actual taste classification.https://wikidiff.com/savory/umami
I prefer british food..t slavI'd kill for some roast and yorkshire pudding right about now.
>>194299585I live in America though and I've heard that.
>>194298469thats looks fucking disgusting
>>194300124Palate preference doesn't seem to be an exact science. I'm at a loss as to why I find Mexican food repulsive but Middle Eastern food good.
>>194299753Well, my reasoning was that you cook sunny side up a bit before eating it so that got rid of whatever causes salmonella. I didn't think the rice would be hot enough to do that, but I learned something new.
>>194298469I don't care how fresh or how good the quality of Japanese eggs are, I'm not eating them uncooked.
>>194300030It's the novelty of western desserts and the status symbol of the high cost.
>>194300120>Umami or savory taste is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umami same thing
>>194300287Plus the cholesterol.
I for one, prefer our glorious American food.
>>194299088Yes rice, natto and some chopped scallions tastes very nice desu.
>>194300275Maybe you don't like cilantro?
>>194299511>never mix different types of meat, faggots.Maybe someone likes it?
>>194298469Everything seems ridiculously overhyped, I'd still like to try most things though. I've been to a few good ramen places and it's more or less what you'd expect, tasty, but nothing spectacular, though the egg-half you get has an incredibly different consistency to what you'd imagine
>>194299381Japanese mayo tastes different. It's more of a ketchup consistency and is a bit sweeter with a slightly more vinegary taste.
I'm italian. I think I should intervene to live up the meme of italians angry at food.
>>194299234And in how many of those would you find old-school nip food compared to western cuisine?
>>194300678Heathens still haven't posted pizza crimes so there's no need.
>>194300678>I'm italian.Prove it. Do the hand thing.
>>194299820Well, no use in linking to a governmental site from a non developed country now is it? Here is a governmental site from Scandinavia explaining that eggs from Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and Norway are perfectøy safe raw.https://www.matportalen.no/matvaregrupper/tema/egg/egg_og_salmonella
>>194300678I love making Italian food because the recipes are often very simple, but I just wish it was healthier.
>>194298469The hot pot on the tonegawa anime is amazingThey essentially teach you to cure a flu
>>194299234Michelin stars are overrated. The top Japanese restaurant isn't even in Japan. It's in Peru.
>>194301458Pizza of the cheese variety?
>>194301091There's a lot of healthy Italian food, the dieta mediterranea might be a meme, but it's a meme due to many good reasons.And truth to be told, the trick is simply not abusing things, a little bit of something "bad" isn't going to kill you, but even something as healthy as parmesan is bad for you if you eat loads of it.If we had to worry about unhealthy things then we'd have to avoid 90% of what we're capable to digest, we wouldn't drink milk after young age and so on.Eating something as unhealthy as the Lardo di Colonnata once in a blue moon won't suddenly give you cancer and it's also delicious, fresh peas can be used to do a shitload of things and are quite healthy as long as you don't try to sustain yourself on those, it's all about balance, just like when you make a dish and you do not want to drown everything in olive oil.
>>194298755one raw egg isn't going to give you shit you hypochondriac
>>194298469Nothing more than Japs wanking to the idea that they're unique and special.
>>194301640I dont think being wary of eating raw food makes you a hypochondriac
>>194299075(White) Rice is unironically better than bread, and I'm also white.
>>194299088I thought it was more of an old person thing.
I'm not sure if it's just sunken cost fallacy, but I make ramen from scratch every now and then. It takes 8-9 hours of making the stock and fixing the meat. But it's fucking amazing. It's definitely not overhyped, unless you mean the instant ramen shit.
>>194299178That’s why you sear it. Crunchier blackened outside that locks moisture inside for what remains of the cooking. Keeping it redder on the inside maintains the texture and flavor. Unless we’re talking ground meat in which case cook all the way through.
>>194301872>I'm not sure if it's just sunken cost fallacy, but I make ramen from scratch every now and then. It takes 8-9 hours of making the stock and fixing the meat. But it's fucking amazing.It's not the sunken cost fallacy. Homemade ramen is great, although I can't be bothered to make my own noodles.
>>194301965I don't have my own pasta machine, so I rarely do that. But I have a pretty nice asian store nearby that make their own fresh noodles. So that's fine. I'm happy to see that I have a friend here that knows about the glory of that bowl of ramen.
All the food from anime matsuri episodes looks delicious. I’ve tried takoyaki (bretty gud) but what I really want to eat is that fried squid on a stick. Never seen it in Amurica.
This is how meat is supposed to be, eat it overcooked and you are a faggot.
>>194302311I want my meat devoured by Lyria.
>>194298754>acting as if he's ever eaten at a Japanese curry houseThai and Indian varieties are more complex, especially with Indians being the OG curry gods, but Japanese curry is fine unless you have to have everything be hot.If you always need your food hot then your fucking tastebuds are garbage.
Japanese food is fucking amazing, best part of going there.
>>194302882Frog legs are pretty good. Like tiny chicken drumsticks.
>>194299237Vegemite IS of australia brainlet.Did you mean "vegemite of japan" retard?
>>194303084I've had fried frogs legs before. It basically tasted like soggy chicken.
>>194298893Based Ruby putting those slit eyed fucks in their place.
>>194299381>>194300622>Jap mayoIt's okay. Maybe slightly better than American mayo, but nowhere near the meme it's cracked up to be.
>>194300950That's what the UK said too and look what happened.
They have like three names for noodles or something.Ramen, Udon and Soba I think.
>>194303678They're just different kinds of noodles, like spaghetti, fettuccine, and buccatini. Soba/men can be used as a generic term for noodles, though.
>>194303607This france, Germany, Italy have had salmonella outbreaks. Don't come crying to others when it happens.
Too much mayo.
>>194303459She was amazing.
>>194304131>Raw from the oceanSmart girl, only barbarians eat uncooked food.
>>194298754I was always under the impression that Japanese curry was more like an overcooked stew.
Why's it always curry?
>>194304474Because it's a stew with more spices.
I wonder, whats the difference between curry and goulash? I feel they are quite similar. Being vegies and meat in thick gravy. But I never had japanese curry to compare them.
When I went to Japan I made it my mission to have proper japanese curry there, among the other foods I wanted to try of course.It was pretty good, I guess I had way too high expectations though, thanks cartoons.
>>194299198Wait what the fuck have you never been to an ichiran. I think the portion size is pretty good and you can get refills on the noodles for not that much extra
>>194300030Isn't that stuff going to melt?
I guess it depends on who prepares the curry. I went to a restaurant near Akiba for my first time eating curry and it wasn't all that great, too sweet.But the one from Coco Ichibanya was great, ended up going there several times. The pork cutlet and cheese-filled hamburger toppings were delicious too.
I think I can say I like all kinds of food apart from Japanese. And I guess the very worst Chinese stuff.
>>194299088It is plain awful. Made me want gag violently and I'm an asian who enjoys durian.>>194299237>>194303102Japanese vegemite is very apt.
>>194298469>dump s o y on something>now it tastes like s o y and nothing elsewhy japan do this?
>>194299234>slap raw fish on a rice>now you are a 3star michelinkek
Japanese cooking isRICE RICE RICE RICE RICE RICEFISH RICE RICE RICE FISH RICEvery boring when you think about itI prefer Nordic Germanic CookingPOTATO POTATO POTATO POTATOFISH POTATO POTATO POTATO FISH
>>194298469I imagine Japanese food tastes super fucking salty because of all the onions sauce and fish in their diets.
I like going to Japanese restaurants Their food is always great. I'm not sure how they compare to actual Japanese cuisine though
>>194299381And I'll never understand american obsession with cheese. Why the fuck do you have to put cheese in everything, americans?
As much as I love everything Japan, i'm not super into the food. I honestly think Chinese and Korean is better.
