42 JAPANESE DELICACIES EXPLAINED
We're fans of the Japanese Foodie blog and their illustrated guides to Japanese dishes – they're well designed and well informed (you'll likely find dishes you may not have tried or even heard of before, unless you've spent significant time in Japan). Previously we've featured their guides to types of ramen, egg dishes and Japanese snacks.
Their latest creation, below, features 42 different Japanese delicacies – some are definitely more delicacy than others – each, more or less, from a different city in Japan. For example, you have gyoza from Utsonomiya, a city so famed for the dumplings that they have gyoza statues, and snow crab from Sakai Minato, where the delicious crabs thrive on the plankton-rich seabed.
As ever, these guides are available in poster form too, over on Kickstarter. So if you consider yourself a Japanese food fanatic, this will make a great checklist of delicacies to try.
