Ok I probably can't claim pancakes as "Canadian" but pancakes and maple syrup is always a personal favourite.

NERVUN wrote:Nope, they are very different. The only simmularity that they share is the 'yaki' part, aka, they are both grilled when cooked. Oyaki are stuffed dumplings whereas okonomiyaki is something more like a pancake (Kinda) where you take a batter made out of flour and other stuff and either mix (Osaka style) or layer (Hiroshima style) a number of different ingredients and then fry the hell out of it. The resulting yummy food is then topped with a sauce, noodles, fish flakes (That wave), and/or mayo and served hot off the grill.


Yep, that's it - Osaka soul food at it's best. (Insert country mouse, city mouse argument between me and Nev here, about wheter Osaka has better food than Nagano. lol :p)

The batter is flour, grated yam, egg, dashi, and cabbage. Toss in green onions, thin sliced pork, and some shrimp. The sauce is like a thick, slightly sweet Worcestershire sauce. And, Nerv you forgot the aonori!

I've long called the katsuobushi "fish ghosts".

Image

The Tokyo/Kanto variation (read inferior :P - yes, bias muchly) is monja-yaki, with a thinner batter.

Image

The other "Osaka soul food" is takoyaki - octopus dumplings topped as like as above.

Image

Some other Japanese "peasant" fare:

Nabe (AKA "hot pot" or "steamboat"): A soup/stew cooked at the table in a communal pot, usually clay or cast iron, with many regional variations. The two basic types are divided by the base stock - it's either dashi (kelp and fish based) and served with a dipping sauce, or a heavier miso, soy sauce, and dashi sans dipping sauce.

Image

becomes...

Image

Donburi (AKA "ricebowl"): cooked stuff (chicken and eggs, thinly sliced beef fried w/ onions, curry, etc.) on top of a big bowl of rice. The one below is the chicken and egg, known as "oyako-don", or "parent and child".
Image

Oden: Stuff like boiled eggs, daikon, konnyaku, and fish cakes stewed in a soy sauce and dashi broth.

FRIED CATFISH

I swear to the deity of your choice that this is the only kind of food I think Tartar Sauce is delicious with.

There are also these deep-fried, kinda thick potato slices at a restaurant a couple blocks from where I live called Ro-Jos.

In the northern part of Sweden they have a traditional dish called Surströmming consisting of fermented herring. Smells like shit put are supposed to be tasty (I Have yet to overcome the smell so I don't eat it). Image
For more info seehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surstr%C3%B6mming

Another nicer dish is pitepalt or kroppkakor. It consist of potatoes which you mix together and then you have some minced meat or pork in the middle. After some boiling it's quite nice.

I still say that I'm willing to put a meal of Shinshu beef, soba, Nozawa veggies, and topped off with watermelons from my town against ANYTHING you can come up with from Osaka. I'll have you weeping that Kansai is so damn far away from here by the time it's over. :p

The batter is flour, grated yam, egg, dashi, and cabbage. Toss in green onions, thin sliced pork, and some shrimp. The sauce is like a thick, slightly sweet Worcestershire sauce. And, Nerv you forgot the aonori!

Sorry!

I've long called the katsuobushi "fish ghosts".

I can no longer eat okonomiyaki with them on it. I spend all my time watching them wave back and forth because it's just too damn entertaining to eat.

Indeed. I've had kimchi based nabe that were heavenly, and of course my favorite food of all time is sukiyaki (And yes, techncially that IS a nabe).

Traditional peasanty where I grew up:

Singing hinnies with broth
pease pudding
Liver Casserole
Celery Casserole
Toad in the hole
Smoked Cod/Haddock
Kippers
Leek and Brown Ale pudding
Stotty
Hotpot
Bacon and Brains
Rabbit Casserole

Edit: Haggis is quite popular too a little further up on the boarder, as is cullen skink, but the scots get pissy if anyone else claims it.

The kind of middle-class mentality which actuates both those responsible for strategy and government has little knowledge of the new psychology and organizing ability of the totalitarian States. The forces we are fighting are governed neither by the old strategy nor follow the old tactics.
