Yummy Miso Dipping Sauce @ Tsukada Nojo

Yesterday, my darling and I had dinner at izakaya called 塚田農場 (Tsukada Nojo). As a free appetizer, they serve miso dipping sauce with raw vegetables. This kind of appetizer is very popular in Japan. But mostly, miso dipping sauce is pretty salty. However, I think their miso was best of all I had in my life! They mix tens of different kinds of minced vegetables in miso, so it is rich and tasty! Not at all salty :D I couldn't stop eating vegetables!!! Before you leave, they'll give you a small plastic case with miso. If you bring the case the next time, they'll fill it up! What a nice idea! But I hope they sell it there. I would love to buy it!!! They have 8 restaurants in Tokyo. I recommend you to go there once when you get a chance!

BTW, Tsukada Nojo is famous for Miyazaki local chicken dishes. Mostly izakaya serves foods in strong flavor since it's a drinking place. However, this izakaya serves everything in mild taste! I would say, all dishes there are great!

Changing my story, I have another post today. Which is kind of important :D

  1. Hi Ochi,

    I've heard my mother in the past talk of making miso soup. I'm sure we saw it in a powder when we visited an oriental store once! Do you make soups with it too? I wish I could visit this restaurant one day!

  2. Hi jo,

    Yes! We do have miso powder but we seldom use it. It is mostly miso paste, even in an instant pack! Maybe your mom was getting dashi powder. We use it with miso paste when we make miso soup :D
