Oden is kinda a Japanese hot pot dish, consisting of a number of ingredients simmered light, soy sauce based soup.
|A sign at a shop selling oden in Asakusa. We went in out of curiosity and was greeted by a gruff lady-owner who told us she doesn't sell rice at the shop (or something similar to that nature. I told you my Japanese is rather bad, right?)|
|An oden portable cooker sold in a shop in Kappabashi. Also not exactly cheap at 10,000yen a pop! That's almost RM400! @.@|
|So instead of buying that oden cooker thingy when we wanted to eat oden at home, I just throw the stuff in a normal pot.|
|And these folks, my homemade oden.|
with the soup base from this packet of soup mix. Can be found easily at supermarkets, if they have stock that is. Jusco Mid Valley Japanese food items shelves are strangely empty nowadays. :(
