Tonyu Nabe (豆乳 鍋)- SAKURA HOTEL Jimbocho Blog 

Bruno 764

Posted by: Bruno

Yesterday I had the pleasure to eat this soy milk hot pot, which is delicious. I would like to invite you to try it sometime!!! The taste is AWESOME :D


The sauce of this nabe is made with toy milk ,sake and sesame oil, but in Japan, the most convenient country, you can find it already prepared in the markets.


So you just need to boil this soup and add the ingredients you like it. 

The most popular are tofu, shitake mushrooms, onions, carrots, long leeks, daikon, shrimps, meat and fish,


Doesn't sound great???

一口飲むと。。。 ま、まるで白桃をそのまま食べてる見たいな!
これは素晴らしい! 日本のフルーツの値段が高くてあまり変えない私には
贅沢な気分が味わえました^^ あはは

Upon taking a sip... It`s almost like eating an actual peach!
Its quite amazing. Since the fruits in Japan are so expensive and I can`t always buy them,
I was able to enjoy the fresh taste of a peach without paying for it... Ahaha..
