not just nameko
Yesterday, though, I spun by the convenience store near where I'm living now. I found a block of momen tofu. I can eat this stuff plain, but, sure of there being no myoga or kaiware daikon but unsure of there being any soy sauce back at the apartment, I picked up, what I thought was, a packet of nameko mushrooms.
After pressing as much water out of the tofu as I could, I cracked open the styrofoam package. I must not have read the package well enough because not only did this container have nameko, but it also had a little package of ground daikon, very small bean natto(極小納豆), and a package of tare for the whole thing.
Amazing! I normally don't like ground daikon (it has a smell that I just don't like), but the mixture of nameko and natto with the tofu with a little soy sauce was really very good! The small beans of the natto were an interesting variation.
What always suprises me is that stuff like this is avaliable at a convenience store, and it's just normal food. Not ethnic/health food. I can only dream that the US will be like this some day....
