Japanify: Soboro Donburi (Crumbly Chicken Bowl)

by Yoko Kumano

During my last visit to Tokyo, my grandma sent me home with some store bought, vacuum-sealed beef soboro. It had been a really long time since I had Soboro Donburi, so I was happy to indulge in some nostalgia when I got back to California. Soboro Donburi is typically made up of three toppings on […]

Japanify: Salmon Avocado Donburi

by Yoko Kumano

Shopping for the freshest seafood just got easier with another fish market that opened in the People’s Republic of Berkeley.

My mother would often make it at home and it was an easy way […]

Japanify: Ikuradon (Ode to Hokkaido)

by Yoko Kumano

There was an egg festival in my bowl of rice the other day. I placed a raw egg yolk on a mound of ikura (salmon roe) on top of my steaming hot bowl of rice. The orange hues are sexy and appetizing, glimmering in my bowl. No matter how many times I have ikuradon (ikura […]
