This is it!!! This is one of those products that I wish I had used earlier. It allows us to spread the cooked rice over a wide area and quickly combine the sushi vinegar with the rice in a full bowl. When mixing the sushi rice while fanning it with an uchiwa, the rice cools down faster than when using a bowl, and the stickiness of the rice, which used to be a problem, has been greatly reduced.

Since I live with two people, the rice bowl is usually the perfect size for two to three cups of rice, and I found it to be of sufficient capacity even if I have to invite someone over. If you fill the rice bowl with water before use and let the rice bowl absorb the water, rice grains are less likely to stick to it and washing it is easy.

I feel like I am making more chirashi-sushi and oshi-sushi by serving on the table easily, and I would like to use it more and more in my daily life, not just for special occasions.

[Tonpeiyaki]

Tonpeiyaki is one of the standard menu items at teppanyaki restaurants and izakayas in the Kansai region. Tonpeiryaki is made by grilling thick pork on a teppan grill, rolling it in egg, and topping it with sauce, mayonnaise, ketchup, etc. It is said to have originated at "Hon Tonpei" on Ohatsu Tenjin Street in Osaka City. The "tonpei" in "tonpeiyaki" is derived from a flattened ("pei") pork ("ton").

In addition to the basic tonpeiyaki, various other types of tonpeiyaki can be seen these days, such as those topped with aonori and dried bonito flakes, those with shredded cabbage and green onions, and those shaped similar to an omelete.

At home, you can make your favorite tonpeiyaki using a Nakamura Douki's Tamagoyaki Pan or a Rikucho Ogasawara's Frying Pan. Why not try making Osaka's specialty in a casual way on weekends?

[Okai Mafu Shoten's Linen Coffee Filter has been added]

This environmentally friendly and sustainable coffee filter is made of hand-woven linen fabric and can be washed and reused repeatedly.

Linen has antibacterial properties in the fiber itself, and its excellent water absorbency and wicking properties allow it to dry quickly and cleanly.

The slightly thicker yarn used expands when wetted, clogging the filter and allowing coffee to fall out slowly. Each piece is individually wrapped in a paper bag, making it a great gift for coffee lovers. Please take a look.
