Fish is one of the staples of Japan after rice. As for meat, the Japanese are willing to make all sorts of dishes made of horse meat. For example, Bassi. For it is only the fatty meat of the horse, which has a marble structure. The slices are cut very thinly and dipped in soy sauce mixed with ginger and green onions. As the authors of the rating, Bassi a bit like Italian prosciutto.

Okonomiyaki is a kind of Japanese fast food. This dish is a fried tortilla from a mixture of various ingredients (vegetables, meat, fish), oiled special sauce and topped with thinly sliced dried tuna. In translation from Japanese “okonomiyaki” literally means “whatever you want”.

Heart-shaped molluscs which are used to cook this dish, are one of the most expensive seafood in Japan. To catch them, you must have a special license. But if you do not deal with bureaucratic procedures, it is sufficient to say that after preparation of marine reptiles are juicy and very sweet.
