Japanese Food & Restaurant Show

As a dedicated food writer and blogger, I attend plenty food shows and festivals together with numerous wine tastings. The Japanese Food & Restaurant Show is one I don't want to miss every year. Although Japanese cuisine remains traditional with amazingly delicious raw fish (sashimi), sushi rolls, beef, noodles, miso and rice, new items seem to be added to enhance flavors. It seems that chili is one of those. And for the first time, I had a curry type of miso soup, not excellent but different. The most innovative food item though was the soy bean roll, ideal for sushi handrolls or just an appetizer.

Sake and shochu is always a pleasure to taste.
