bakuteh in japan

Posted on: January 24, 2010

i tried cooking bakuteh for dinner just now >w< thanks to the herbs from my beloved nehs that i received in the box of love a few months ago, it was easy… just a matter of buying the raw ingredients! i went to the supermarket twice because i forgot to get the garlic 😦 why? because :

a) i didn’t think it would actually be necessary, until neh pointed out that it’s a must-have in bakuteh (i still can’t taste it though, neh!)
b) i was not sure how garlic looks like =w= i’ve always thought it was called an onion! it looks like one! *defensive mode*
c) i couldn’t remember the japanese name for garlic… (it’s ninniku by the way -w-)

by the way, garlic is expensive in japan. i feel betrayed, paying 298円 for ONE garlic. that’s almost RM12 for ONE measly garlic! why is this!? do the japanese not use garlic in their cooking?! *kicks the nearest non-existant(1) trashcan*

before i started. you can see the retardedly expensive garlic, all nicely packed plastic

waited for it to cook for 30 minutes…

ta-da! not bad for a first-timer

i miss original klang bakuteh! but i think something is wrong with my body now haha, it’s reacting badly to the food. probably due to the extreme shock of chinese herbs after more than 3 months of light japanese food =w= i wonder what will happen if i eat nasi lemak now…

note : (1) japan has no trashcans on the streets. ever.

If you buy made in China garlic you can get 3 biji at 100 yen shops. I used to buy vegetables at Shin Okubo though.
