I had a new type of Japanese food recently — that was not sushi!
Tamagoyaki! This is a type of omelette that is made by layering eggs, vinegar, soy sauce, and any desired toppings. At our restaurant, Abeno, the omelettes were made at our table, hibachi-style. I love when food preparation becomes entertainment!
The finishing touch were a several sauces (mayonnaise and soy-sauce based, I believe) which made the flavor of the eggs so rich, layered and delicious. A wonderful, savory, complex but light meal!
