We were playing with food at a Jap place.

Earlier tonite, went with Momo to have dinner. OK, let's have a game. Anyone can guess where this place is and what are we playing with?

After we ordered our food, this came to the table. Hmmm. (we were suaku!) We had to asked what was it for? Toasted white sesame was the reply.




We were suppose to grind them. Then pour the 'x' sauce into it, to go with one of the dishes.



We did not grind them too fine, so that we can still have some 'bits' of it. I wonder if it's suppose to be like that. The moment we crushed them, it smell so so good!



Anyway, we poured in 'x' sauce in.



Then stir.....



Anyone knows what sauce was poured in? :-)

The suribachi (mortar) and surikogi (pestle) for the sesame seeds give it away! Sauce is likely tonkatsu sauce. Probably Tonkichi although I have never had tonkatsu there before. Was it nice?

I did have some REALLY NICE TONKATSU in Japan though! hehe

tonkichi is most famous of katsu restaurants among the japanese circle in singapore! =) it is quite delicious, as good as many places in tokyo. i don't have very high taste, so i enjoy the brand "wako" in japan, it is quite good for its price.

the ground sesame is very delicious, isn't it?

Keropok Man said...

yes!! the moment you grind the sesame seeds, the smell is so so good!

it taste good too! :-)
