Shizuoka must eat foods!

Shizuoka City

Shizuoka, located along the Pacific coast of southern Honshu, is not only famous for its tea and breathtaking view of Mt. Fuji. Here are some must eat dishes from the region.

Feel free to follow favy!

Tatami Iwashi

Tatami iwashi is made from baby sardines in a process that evokes the manufacture of traditional Japanese paper. The tiny fish are laid out and dried in a single layer, forming a thin, crispy sheet. It's commonly used as an ingredient in soup, but also perfect to nibble on with sake or beer!

Shizuoka Oden

Oden is a traditional one-pot dish made with several ingredients like boiled eggs, daikon, konjac, and processed fishcakes stewed in a soy-flavored dashi.
In Shizuoka, all the ingredients are skewered and simmered in a dark-colored broth flavored with beef stock and dark soy sauce.
It's usually sold from food-carts, but oden specialized restaurants can also be found.

Kuro Hanpen

Hanpen is a soft, mild-flavored fish cake, made with grated Japanese yam and seaweed stock.
They are usually white, but in Shizuoka, because they are made with whole sardines, they turn out with a distinctive ash color.
Kuro hanpen, one of the ingredients in oden, can also be fried or grilled and eaten as a snack with your favorite beverage!

Sakura Ebi

Sakura Ebi are tiny pink shrimp, named after the Japanese cherry-blossom.
Harvested in Shizuoka's Suruga Bay and loved for their unique taste and sweet smell, they are used in dishes such as chawan-mushi, tempura and even as an accent for pastas and salads.
You can also taste them fresh with rice and soy sauce or dried, as seasoning.

Abekawa Mochi

And let's not forget the sweets!
Abekawa Mochi is a traditional Japanese sweet made with fresh mochi (rice cake) dusted with kinako (soybean flour).
As Abekawa was a mining region for gold, tea houses in the area would tell visitors that their mochi was dusted with gold from the mines. The great publicity paid off and made it endure the years as a must eat when in Shizuoka!
