Japanese Food

Writer’s Workshop: Dining Xperience Monkey Boy Style


Monkey boy loves Japanese food. Every week he would request to eat  tuna mayo sushi , udon or soba for lunch or dinner.

On the weekend when we go out for dinner he would request to go to Sake Sushi or any other restaurant which  serves Japanese food. Raw salmon and salmon roe(Ikura) are among his absolute favourite.

Chicken Terriyaki  Bento or Curry chicken udon are what he would order if we are eating out at a food court as sushi would be unavailable. He loves tempura too and dipping the deep fried vegetables into the tempura dipping sauce.  In fact he loves most Japanese foods but passes on the wasabi for the moment.

Sometimes to satisfy his craving of Japanese food we cook tempura and other Japanese food at home during the weekdays.


Are your kids into Japanese food too?

ITADAKIMASU(いただきます)- Let’s Eat Up


My kids love Japanese Food and  were thrilled with the fusion cuisine that was served for dinner yesterday.


They had cod fish, steamed mixed vegetables, garlic mash potato, chawamushi and jelly with fruits.  It was great seeing them diving into their dinner once it was served. They only took 1/2 the time they normally took to complete dinner and they had extra telly time after dinner.

The meal took me about an hour to prepare and cook and the kids only took about 30 minutes to finish eating it. Dinner with the family was hassle free last night and I didn’t even have to bring out the Chocomisu which I had stored in the fridge to entice the kids to eat.

What have you been cooking for the kids lately?
