Three way to eat Hitsumabushi
When we eat this dish, we are recommended to try three different way to eat Hitsumabushi. So first of all, we should divide the rice in the main bowl of Hitsumabushi by four evenly.
The main bowl of Hitsumabushi
The first way is very simple just eat plane Hitsumabushi. No need to add something.
The second way is my favorite. Add welsh onion and Wasabi on the rice. Smells so wonderful!
The third way is Ochazuke style. Put seaweed and welsh onion on the rice and pour soup into the bowl.
The last way should be chosen by you! Get the rest of rice to your bowl and try the best way you like.
That is all. The main bowl of Hitsumabushi might be empty after you try all ways.
Since onion and Wasabi are free, I tried second way with pile of them!
Looks great doesn’t it?
