Do you know ‘Chikuwabu’? It’s a Japanese food made from wheat. In this picture, something star-shaped is it. It’s frequently used as an ingredient for Oden. It’s imitating the shape of Chikuwa, a more common food made from fish. I learned recently that this food is only consumed in and around Tokyo.
Chikuwabu in miso soup tastes different! Try it if you have a chance to get it. Many ingredients go well with it, but I added aburaage (deep fried tofu) and daikon this time.
