#368 Takiniku

No, I didn’t spell yakiniku wrong.


Takiniku/炊き肉 is a dish boiled on your table in front of you.

There is a unique hot plate with a large indent that holds liquid.


The fillings, often cabbage and veggies with meat, are arranged on the outer part of the plate.

炊き/taki means to boil and 肉/niku is meat.


First, you push some of the ingredients into the soup in the indent.

Then boil the meat and veggies in the broth and serve it in small bowls.


It is often a miso based broth with soy sauce.

It’s a famous food that originated from Kagoshima in Kyushu.
