五目飯 (ごもくめし) Gomoku Meshi

I have finally finished watching The Legend and I am super @_@ now. The show is a must watch, but I felt somewhat let down by the ending. Well, I shan't give away too much details in case some of you reading this might want to watch it. *Sigh* I love single eye lidded guys! There are no lacking in the show. Wondering if my hubby is too? Yes, of cos!

Anyway, I am suffering from the usual withdrawal syndrome, but I managed to drag myself to the kitchen and make this one pot dinner.


The dish is basically made up of 5 items, which are whatever that is in season. Here I used chicken thigh, dried shiitake mushrooms, deep fried beancurd puffs, dried scallops and carrots. The rice is then cooked dashi stock and when it is done, just stir the parsley in. Ultra easy. But unfortunately the taste of it didn't come close to what I have eaten in Japan, so I won't share the recipe yet until I fine tuned it.

Please excuse me while I rant again: Ohh... I missed the Japanese bentos from Keio Plaza!

Okay, I'm back. As I was saying, .... (where was I??) Anyway, when I was in Tokyo, there are many shops which sells takeaway rice boxes at the supermarket and also at the train stations. Some are sushi, some are rice dumplings (onigiri), others are glutinous rice (mochi gome) and they are all delicious and cheap. 100 Yen for an onigiri. 210 Yen for 230 grams of glutinous rice of any flavour of your choice (sweet or savoury).


I'll be trying out more rice recipes later the week. Hopefully something close to the yummy food from Tokyo will turn up.

  2. Yes, it is quite tiring but I think it is a good show leh. Cos the way the directors filmed it, it feels more like watching a movie (think: 风云) rather than watching a drama (think: 大长今).

    By the way, I've asked my hubby to look for Cruel Love, but the rental shop doesn't have Eng sub, so we are on waitlist for now. (-.-)

    Yes, actually I have been cooking Jap but cos I was camping at my mom's, so no photos.

  3. Hmmm i see...I think its a big production.

    Ok, can take a break for the time being whilst on wait-list. Shops here are pretty slow in bringing in the new dramas.

    Now that yr sis is on long haul, yr shopping list can be extended to incl more items. Watch the pocket :)

  4. Oh yes it was a big production that cost 40 billion won to produce. Perhaps most of it went to the lead actor.

    Well, my hubby just brought in Jumong. I wonder if it is good. Cos as you said, the wait for Cruel Love will be awhile.

    Oh talking about shopping, have you heard of this website: www.shoppersp.blogspot.com ? I find that the items there are quite cheap.
