    Japanese Condiments

    Japan is popular for its condiments. You can find an array of little bottles and jars on the table once you visit restaurants in the country. There are a number of unique condiments you can find but many of them are optional. Servers usually explain the condiments in detail when they serve dishes so there’s no need to worry if you don’t know what they are for.

    A popular condiment that truly heightens Japanese food is the sauce. It’s difficult to imagine food without them. Sauces add up to the taste and excellence of dishes. Well-known sauces are tonkatsu sauce, kushikatsu sauce, yakiniku tare sauce, yakisoba sauce, sesame sauce, hot mustard, okonomi sauce, miso sauce, ponzu sauce, and of course, soy sauce. People usually bring home a few bottles of these sauces when they come home from a trip to Japan.

    There’s nothing more thrilling than the power of creating your own food or even your very own sauce!

    The first step to customizing your sauce is choosing the base sauce from several varieties displayed on the company’s online website. Some of these bases are variations of a pantry essential called “ponzu,” which is a citrus-based sauce. It comes in varieties such as “kabosu,” a citrus fruit of an evergreen broad-leaf tree, “yuzu,” a popular citrus fruit in Japan also known as citron, or “daidai,” an Asian variety of bitter orange.

    You can then put the ingredients you want by adding or subtracting them into the recipe. Each ingredient goes up to 13, allowing you to control the taste of your product.

    You can order your customized sauce and it will be shipped to you immediately. The amount you need to pay will depend on how you customize your sauce and its quantity. The range is usually from 600 to 1,000 yen. Bottles come in 100 and 200 mL sizes.

    If you happen to like a sauce you made, you can order it again. If you prefer their original sauces, you may do so, too. Do remember, however, that they only accept credit cards for payment.
