Japnese Dishes and Food

Now let's talk about Japan. I got a comment on the 'Japan' page about different foods that I haven't mentioned. Thank you: Terra Taylor, you inspired me to do this post ^_^. So I start with the famous ones and then some of the rest that I haven't mentioned in the 'Japan' page :).

Sushi
Most famous dish in the world! Some people think that Sushi is a raw fish but it's not as it's Sashimi. Sushi has variety ingredient in it. It is cooked rice with fish, seafood, mushrooms, vegetables or eggs wrapped in the seaweed. It doesn't have to contain a fish or seafood!
As a russian guy once said: ' Sushi is good' ~ Drrr


Dango
Japanese noodles made up of rice flour. Mostly served with green tea :)
Other not really related info xD: Nagisa from Clannad sang a song about 'Dango Family'

Ramen

Japanse soup with noodles and other ingredients depending on the recipe. It's different from other Japanese soups as it contains meat. Traditional Japanese soups are mainly made from fish and vegetables. 
For Otaku this soup is really famous as it's Naruto's favourite meal :D


 

Taiyaki
It's fish shaped cake filled with differemt fillings such as chocolate, custard, red bean paste and cheese.
Ayu from 'Kanon' love Taiyaki
