Lasang Pinoy Sundays - Rice

Filipinos eat rice at every meal, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As a staple food, most pinoys won't go through the day without rice...This could be the reason why Japanese food is very likeable to us, especially when packed in a bite size maki complete with rice, viand and more!

(Son1 with his california maki)

One afternoon, son1 suddenly bursted out, "Mommy, gusto ko sushi!" (Mommy, I want sushi!). This boy is a little picky with food, but he does have an appetite like mine if he likes whats served. Since I had no fresh fish that time, I decided to bring them to our favorite Japanese restaurant that is very near our place, Kyoto Sunrise.

The restaurant is located at the mall where they could also play and which from time to time has fun gimmicks for kids. We can go there via tram, 2 stops or we can also walk (more or less 20 minutes). We also like the restaurant staff, they at first thought of us as Chinese (especially coz little boy greets them 'ni hao') with a little doubt on me since only the kids have chinita/chinito looks. hehe.

Son2 surprisingly liked the appetizer, instead of daikon (radish), they served toge (bean sprouts) with a sour dressing. And he ate 5 pieces of the california maki from his kuya. =D I would love to eat them too as much as he did, the avocado, mayonaise and shrimp goes well with the taste of treated japanese rice and nori....

Daughter ordered lachs sushi (salmon), hers and my favorite! We could it salmon sushi, or just sashimi for a whole day! Theirs are really fresh, I couldn't resist taking a few even if I ordered a bento.

I asked for the Bulgogi bento, it was served with a cup of rice, an appetizer, 2 sushi, 3 maki, and lychees...the beef strips were tender and tasty, I liked the marinade they use for it.
Since hubby was at work, I ordered yakisoba for rice for him...=P

I have never had "california maki". Nori is inside, interesting.
Thoes salmon is looks oily and delicious.

About your question.
We usually call salmon "Sake" or "Shake".
For example "sake no kirimi"(filleted salmon), "Sake no shioyaki"( grilled salmon with salt) etc.
But, As ingredient of Sushi or raw(Sashimi), we call it "samon".
And sake(salmon) and sake(rice wine) are having different accent.

Ces, I do that sometimes, only sushi rice covered with nori parang onigiri hehe...

Nobu, ok its cleared up...I thought also since you do not have L in japanese that its omitted? Thanks for the explanation =)

I was wondering though, sometimes california maki also is covered with masago, its interesting to know that you seem to not do this kind at home...I also your mackerel miso, it looks yummy!
