grilled eel and rice (unaju)
sushi / sashimi
... (and I bet there is a lot more I didn't eat yet and some I don't know the name!)

You like Nattou? Do you have any good recipe?
I like it but I eat it always with green onion, rice and raw egg...

I love teriyaki chicken, the thigh peices with the skin attached instead of the small chicken pieces without skin. It's probably only the one I've ever tasted as well:D.

What's the difference between this and the "favorite food" thread in the "General Discussion" board? I guess I just don't see how an "Off Topic" board is any different from "General Discussion". Anyway, as many probably already know, my favorite food is raw horse, aka "basashi/馬刺し" or "sakuraniku/桜肉". There was actually a full-page ad in today's New York Times calling for Congress to put an end to the slaughter of horses. It made me think about the whole whaling issue, too, and I tried to think of why any of this is any different than slaughtering cows, pigs, and chicken or hunting stuff like deer and ducks and geese...

Well, I think I just figured out how an "Off Topic" thread may be different from a "General Discussion" thread...:D

re: whaling. The main difference is whales aren't farmed like cows, pigs, etc. If we cordoned off a section of the ocean specifically for farming whales, and keeping them from escaping. Then there really wouldn't be a whale issue. Now it is ok to eat buffalo because we farm them. The reason they nearly went extinct was because at the time people were just using them for target practice during boring train rides.


Oh, and I think my favorite food would be the Dragon roll at my local Sushiya.

"Of course" Natto? *boggle*

I haven't tried Natto yet, and I'm perfectly willing to try it, but I have never once liked one food or drink that is considered an "acquired taste" I don't like liver and eating lots of it doesn't make it start tasting better. I don't like beer, and drinking lots of it doesn't make it taste any better. Etc. What most people don't realize is milk is also an acquired taste, they just acquire the taste before they remember, but I can't stomach that stuff either.

As far as i remember that thread was about japanese food. And not as an example norwegian food. ;)

My favourite food, well i could tell you. But only 0.1 % of the users on this forum would know what it was. :p My favourite food is something called "Pinnekjøtt" (Norwegian, yes) It is from the sheep. ;)
