Dashi Chazuke En: Umami-Filled Comfort Food

Food & Drink Restaurants Japanese Food Umami

Wondering what to do with your leftover rice or onigiri? Why not try ochazuke?

Ochazuke is simply pouring hot tea, broth, or even water over cooked rice in order to revive the rice and create a new, unique flavor and texture that can be even more delicious than the original.

In fact, chain restaurant Dashi Chazuke En dedicates its menu to spreading the warm, cozy, umami deliciousness of ochazuke (with fresh rice). Choose from traditional toppings like pickled vegetables, sesame seeds, salted salmon, wasabi and more. If you can't decide, the store offers a half and half bowl so you can try two flavors. Get inspired to know what to do the next time you have leftover rice.
