Seems like not long ago that I stumbled onto the drama, and now the manga Volume 14 is available. Some of the dishes look interesting. I had been looking for Saikyo miso for a very long time and I finally found some when I was in Los Angeles's Japan town. I really like the taste and texture. Is this miso popular in Japan?

Hiroyuki said...

okasan: Yes, popular, particularly in Kansai (Western Japan). Saiko miso is a specialty of Kato. I, for one, is not a big fan of it because it's sweet.

Thank you so much, Hiroyuki! I am only now trying to go through the first volume bought in Japan... Kanji is a nightmare, not to mention the very casual speech no one has taught me... but such a fantastic manga as Shinya Shokudo is probably the best motivation to learn it!
Maybe in ten years I'll read the first 13 volumes!
Wow! I have just googled the images and Saikyo miso is the only miso I brought from Japan and didn't like. It's soooo sweet I couldn't believe it was just pure miso... I have put it into the fridge and think of pickling some garlic maybe... I think I like most red "grainy" miso. (I bought one with red koji bits and it is delicious, at first I thought it was with chilli inside, but the shop assistant said it was red koji).

Hiroyuki said...

okasan: Not Kato but Kyoto! What a stupid typo!

Sissi: I hope you find some nice Japanese-language instructor who can teach you all the details, and I do hope you find some good uses of saikyo miso! I've read somewhere that even Kyoto people do not use white sweet miso on a daily basis.

Sissi said...

Thank you, Hiroyuki! I am lucky to have a very good Japanese teacher and I hope she is not fed up explaining to me all the very colloquial vocabulary from Shinya Shokudo which is absent from standard learning materials...
I will look up for recipes with saikyo miso.

okasan said...

Although the Saikyo miso is sweet it goes very well when i marinate it with Sable Fish or Black Cod. It is a very oily fish and the sweetness of the miso goes very well with it.
BTW, I just stumbled upon a Korean Drama that mirrors Shinya Shokudo, Midnight Diner, it is called Late Night Restaurant. The Producer must have sold the rights to the Korean network. It follows the same format but Korean. If you are interested in Korean Food you can check this out at the website. It has English subtitle.

okasan: Thanks for the information and the link. It sounds that Shinya Shokudo appeals to anybody!

okasan: Season 4?! Thanks for your comment!

(Well, I must say I have lost interest in this manga because it has lost much of the pathos it used to have...)

There is the saying 'don't overdo a good thing'! The show has been sensationally successful throughout Asia, after awhile ideas are running thin! Nevertheless I still like to see 'what's cooking!' The first episode titled 'soup noodle'たんめん but the main character had it without noodle「麺抜き」. It's so simple to make so that's what I end up making tonight for dinner, but I had it with nama ramen I happened to have on hand. 作りやすくて、おいしかったです。
