Kinshobai Furikake


The Tokyo-based tsukudani shop sells "Kinshobai Furikake" to people in the Kanto region. is very famous thanks to its TV commercial, "Luxury Furikake, Kinshobai". I suppose. But in the rest of the country, the name is not so well known and is known as "Kinshobai When I hear "Furikake", I say "What? That's what you'd think. But when you see the real thing, you're like, "Oh, this is it! I guess it's a familiar food, too! I'm not sure if it was my memory of eating this Kinshobai Furikake, or if it was a different product But it's not.

Kinshobai Furikake is sold in Tokyo, but nowadays it is sold in many famous department stores across the country, and I wonder if it is also famous in the provinces.


Take out a Kinshobai Furikake in a plastic bag from a small box and put it in a separate I transferred it to a bowl of the same name. And when I smelled it, it was just as I had imagined it would be from the looks of it, like bonito flakes over soy sauce. That's what it smells like. But if you look closely, you can see that there are pine nuts and various other things in it, and about 40% of it is not bonito flakes. It looks like it's in there.

When I tried a pinch of it, I found out that it is basically okaka (soy sauce poured over bonito flakes), but there is a lot of it in the form of a stick The black kikurage in the first place creates a nice crunchy texture, and the white sesame seeds also assert their own flavor. I did. I tried them on hot rice, and they were so good! Dried bonito flakes are the taste of Japan, after all! These furikake sprinkles are easy to make at home, but I'm sure they can be made at home, too. It must be chock full of know-how. Ochazuke is next....

It may be known as Furikake, but it's no exaggeration to call it Tsukudani. In fact, the name on the description is Tsukudani.
