Breakfast! 2018

Recommended Posts

A bit delayed as this was actually yesterday’s breakfast:

 

Travelling by train in Japan means that you HAVE to buy (or bring) an “ekiben” or train lunch box. Large parts of Tokyo station are dedicated shops to provide you with any imaginable food, boxed neatly in any required portion size for taking to your trip.

I opted for Tamagoyaki in 7 different flavours (classic, chestnut, chicken, chilli, seaweed, little fishes and something I already forgot). The classic one was rich and sweet and I found that the other flavours did not really stand a chance against the basic seasoning. That being said, they were tasty ...

Out of curiousity I bought also the Green Curry Pan, which consisted of baked green tinted bread, filled with a thickened and very aromatic green Thai curry and topped with roasted shaved coconut. A heavenly cream mbination that I will try to replicate at home.

 

Just before boarding the Shinkansen ‘‘tis would be the last chance to buy an ekiben, but as you could see I was already set ...

I swear I learn more about Japanese food from reading your posts than from stacks and stacks of real and virtual books!  7 different iterations of tamagoyaki?  Oh my.

Sunday breakfast.

Now that is the quintessential Sunday breakfast for me. I don’t have a lot of memories of my early childhood but the smell of tomatoes frying on a Sunday morning.....

My thoughts entirely.  I actually woke up about 2 am thinking of this then tossed and turned all night! There was no choice but to go for it.  I even had to go out at some unearthly hour to pick up some fresh eggs. I had eggs, but they were passed poaching age.

Sauteed Kohlrabi tops with onion and garlic.   Topped with a sunny side up egg and diced grape tomatoes for breakfast.  Love this type of breakfast

Used to live near a chicken firm that specialized in raising brood stock chickens. They had a number of hatcheries, which all culled their eggs before setting them to incubate.  They'd separate out the double-yolkers and sell them as "extra large" at a local store, and I'd make a special trip to that store to buy them.

 

Unfortunately, since the chickens didn't get to run around and were fed a specialized diet, they didn't taste like farm eggs. Good and fresh, though.

Homemade 三鲜饺子 (sān xiān jiǎo zi ) - three flavour jiaozi (pork, prawn and shiitake).  With a soy and Zhejiang black vinegar dip.

 

The jiaozi were boiled in a spicy, garlicky broth and some of the chilli and garlic added to the dip.

You're killing me!   LOVE dumplings.  I usually have a stash of homemade ones in the freezer but sadly we ate them all last week.  Looks like you make your own wrappers too!!

On this occasion, I did make the wrappers, although to be honest I often buy them for next to nothing in my local market.

Got up hungry this morning.20180731_085933.thumb.jpg.374619ef81b0af11e027ac5bf5c9eec2.jpg

Fried potatoes and onions, topped with what were going to be over easy eggs until I broke a yolk. Some bacon fried up in the potatoes.

Duck egg in wowotou buns.

 

Good news is that one of my egg sources has started displaying the lay date of its stock. I think I can trust them. These were layed two days ago, according to the notice.
