Oden Lunch

japan-oden-lunch-set

This is a lunch of oden, pickles and rice.
Oden is a kind of hot-pot meal, where foods such as boiled eggs, white radish (daikon), fishcakes, tofu, seaweed and a weird rubbery Japanese vegetable food called konnyaku are all cooked up in a light soup. The grey triangular thing in the middle is konnyaku. The tube-like thing is a kind of fish cake. The brown thing tied in a knot is seaweed. The other two brown things are tofu. You eat it with mustard, even though I don’t think that Japanese usually eat much mustard with anything else – it’s not really a Japanese thing.
Oden is not really my taste, but my mum and dad really like it!
