Today’s Japanese food is “Yu-Do-Fu”.
Winter is the perfect season for a hot pot dish in Japan. One of the most simple and fantastic dishes is “Yu-Do-Fu”. It is a traditional Japanese food that boils tofu, water and kelp in a hot pot.
It originated from Buddhist vegetarian food in Kyoto, and later became a part of Japanese home cooking.
Japanese often eat a boiled tofu with special sauce in cold winter. You can enjoy the harmony of warmly smooth tofu and a bit sour sauce in your mouth. If you taste it with Japanese sake, it is the very Japanese way.
Nothing beats a hot pot, especially “Yu-Do-Fu” in the wintertime. Why don’t you try it and warm your cold body in your winter trip? It makes your heart warmed up, too. It must be one of the culinary highlights of your journey.
