Can't get enough of the delicious and slightly spicy Karashi Mentaiko!

Karashi Mentaiko
Karashi Mentaiko (spicy pollock roe) is one of the specialties of Fukuoka which is always a good choice when it comes to buying souvenir. Made with the ovaries of Alaska pollock, they are seasoned with chili pepper sauce thus giving a light spiciness and deep umami. This time, ZUZU (2020 Taiwan asianbeat・FACo Kawaii Ambassador) visited the Hakata Tenpura Yamami Uni-President Department Store (Taipei), which is affiliated with a long-established Mentaiko manufacturer, Yamaya. Look how ZUZU enjoyed the Karashi Mentaiko!

ZUZUZUZU: For me, mentaiko is not a casual food, so I was really happy to be able to enjoy the unlimited free refill for the dish! It is perfect to go with rice as it has a slight spiciness! Wish I could visit Fukuoka one day and try many kinds of mentaiko dishes!
