Roasted chicken rolls add flair to your dining table / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

CHICKEN IS an old stand-by that is sure to satisfy many. Why not jazz it up? This recipe for roasted chicken rolls is simple to make, yet has flair. "It has the same crispy skin and rich stuffing as roast chicken," says chef Masayo Waki. The roll may be fastened by winding string around it instead of using toothpicks.

Tonkatsu (deep-fried pork cutlet)

Tonkatsu, deep-fried breaded pork cutlet, is in its own way just as famous as tempura; and like tempura it was imported from the West. This dish is derived from the European breaded cutlet, but whereas the Western version is fried in a scant amount of oil, this one is deep-fried.
Tonkatsu is one of the most popular meat dishes in Japan. A "set" meal consisting of a deep-fried breaded pork cutlet on a bed of cabbage, a bowl of rice, one of soup, and a side dish of pickles costs about Y800-Y1,000.

In comparison with tempura, this dish might impress you as being heavy, almost Germanic. But the fact remains that this kawari-age dish is very much a daily food and is inexpensive as well as filling. Done well, with pork loin or tenderloin, it can be very good indeed.
Tonkatsu is accompanied by a thick sauce, based on Worcestershire sauce, which is available in bottles, or you can use the dipping sauces recommended below. It is commonly laid against shredded raw cabbage, which acts as a salad.

Ochazuke with Salmon Flakes

Ochazuke is a dish in which hot tea is poured over cooked white rice topped with a few simple ingredients. It is a deceptively simple yet extremely tasty dish beloved by all Japanese. Ochazuke can be enjoyed as a light meal or snack at any time of day, and it is extremely easy to prepare. All you need to do is put some simple ingredients on a bowl of hot white rice and pour a cup of tea over it.

Of course, the flavor of the dish will improve if you are particular about the rice, the type of tea, and the topping. Favorite Japanese toppings are pickled plums (umeboshi), dried sea laver (nori), grilled salmon, soy-simmered fish and seaweed, tempura, broiled eel, and so on. Alternatives from Western cuisine are grilled chicken, grilled salmon, pickled cucumber, smoked salmon, and oysters marinated in oil.

Various seasonings can be added for flavor, such as sesame seeds, Japanese horseradish (wasabi), or freshly grated ginger. Ochazuke is normally served in a bowl large enough to hold the rice and a generous amount of tea. Individual salad bowls, large breakfast cups, or cereal bowls are good substitutes.

Saury delicious when cooked with pickled plum / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

ALTHOUGH A poor saury harvest has been in the news lately, sanma is still a great autumn flavor not to be missed. For a change, try cooking saury in a pot, guts and all. Choose fresh fish with clear eyes and solid abdomen.
"The key is to remove the excess blood to avoid the fishy smell," says cooking expert Atsuko Matsumoto.
If you use a pressure cooker, "even the bone will become soft," she says.
Plums pickled only with salt are recommended for use in cooking.

One-pot penne with salmon and broccoli / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

EVEN THOUGH it follows the one-pot method, this penne with salmon and broccoli is not an instant dish. Cooking expert Masayo Waki came up with this effortless dish for busy people who want to eat healthy.
"I chose a cream-type sauce to make use of the stickiness of the cooking water," Waki says.
She adds that the dish will not work with items that require smoothness, such as spaghetti or tomato sauce. Short pastas, such as penne or macaroni, are recommended.
Ingredients added to the dish include onion in addition to salmon and broccoli. Bacon, spinach and various mushrooms may also be used. You will feel an autumnal atmosphere when you eat this meal.

Kiyomaru (Ehime Prefecture)- tonkatsu pork cutlet

Tonkatsu parfait is perhaps their most famous dish (the main shop's website URL refers to it), but Kiyomaru sells other "abnormal tonkatsu" items like pork cutlet pockets stuffed with fried rice, cheese and other ingredients. The parfait (Y580) comes in a huge ice-cream cone that holds a good-sized dollop of green-tea ice cream and bits of kiwi, pineapple, cherries, mikan and apple, with whipped cream and two strips of tasty deep-fried pork.

Meatrea Meat Theme Park, Minami-Osawa

When we first learned of Meatrea, billed as Japan's first meat theme park, we were intrigued. Not just a collection of meat restaurants, they also boast a Meat Musuem (or "Museo de Carne" as they mysteriously call it) with an educational component.
And when we heard out about their tonkatsu parfait, a dessert featuring ice cream and pork, we knew we'd have to hop on the train to inspect the place for ourselves.

Yebisu Garden Place was originally the site of Sapporo's Tokyo brewery, so it is only fitting that they would put their Beer Museum here.
Not only is admission free, but the Tasting Lounge at the end of the course is a bargain for beer lovers. Getting there, however, requires that you first go through the museum, which can take anywhere between 10 minutes and an hour (depending on how eager you are for a beer).
