Sukiyaki Night ♡


If you ever want to eat really gooooood Japanese Sukiyaki and/or ShabuShabu, you got to go and get some meats from Nikuya meats in Richmond.  They have super thinly sliced top level meats.


Sukiyaki is one of the most popular and beloved hot pot dish in Japan.  It consists of meat (usually thinly sliced beef) alongside vegetables and other ingredients, in a shallow iron pot in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin that we cook at the table and eat it as we cook.

 

Other than beef, here in our hot pot, we have...

Shirataki.. translucent noodle  made from Konnyaku
Grilled tofu, nappa cabbage, enoki mushroom, Japanese big long green onion called Naganegi.


We usually dip sukiyaki in a row egg before eat.

I had my favorite Hakkaisan nigori Sparkling to start and it was fabulous marriage!




My friends prefered more of drier crist Gokujo Yoshinogawa.  I love Yoshinogawa, too!


For our dessert, I drove all the way to Port Moody to get this  marron (chestnuts cream) cake from Cake-Ya.


I quite often feel really happy about being an adult, so we can try things that your parents could angry at you, like digging in to this huge cake without cutting up.

And I am very very grateful that I have friends who would also enjoy it♬
