Hello everyone and welcome to yet another (Although a tad bit late) edition of Fantastic Feasts and Where to Find Them! If you haven’t noticed, I love comfort food, and all things that evoke the “taste of home”. Nothing seems to embrace home-cooking more–well, for me at least–than Western dishes that have been changed to suit the Asian palette. In my household, hamburgers aren’t served up on buns or grilled; rather, they’re fried up and served atop a bed of fluffy rice.
Japan has embraced this kind of remix of Western classics with a cooking style known as yohshoku, and one of the quintessential yohshoku dishes out there has to be the Japanese hambaagu.
