T-Rice Bowl

Instagram is an awesome thing.

I was away from the Japanese food scene for a long time, but now I feel like I’m catching up.

When I saw a picture of a dynamic tofu rice bowl, I knew that was something I wanted to create myself.

Apparently, this is a special dish served at a restaurant called “Otako-Honten” in Japan, and it has been very popular since stories about this dish were picked up by the media a few years ago.

They call this dish “To-Meshi,” in Japanese.

I’m assuming that the “TO” is a shortened “tofu” and “Meshi” means rice.

My tofu was slow-cooked for hours in slightly sweetened soy/seaweed/mushroom-based broth.

At the end of the process the tofu has absorbed all the delicious flavors.

A bowl of miso soup and a small dish of kimchi complete this awesome meal.

Simply delicious.
