Karashi Mentaiko with rich umami and irresistible hot pot dish, Mizutaki♪

Fukuoka 福扇華
Since the 2020 Taiwan asianbeat・FACo Kawaii Ambassador, Hsuan (Shih Yu-Hsuan), is living in Tokyo, she made a visit to an antenna restaurant/shop named "福扇華" (Fukuoka) [Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo] that provides information on sightseeing and products of Fukuoka Prefecture! Hsuan had tried 2 of the famous specialities in Fukuoka - Karashi Mentaiko and Mizutaki. Karashi Mentaiko is made with the ovaries of Alaska pollock and are seasoned with chili pepper sauce, thus having a light spiciness and deep umami. Whereas Mizutaki is an exquisite hot pot dish that serves mellow chicken-based soup and soft chicken meat that make it so irresistible! What did Hsuan think about the two dishes that represent Fukuoka, the city of food? Let's check!

Hakata Gameni - a local dish in Fukuoka made by simmering chicken with carrots and burdock♪

鈺萱Hsuan: I was surprised by the one whole Karashi Mentaiko! It was the first time I saw such a luxurious mentaiko dish! I love mentaiko and I used to eat mentaiko for breakfast for a while, but mentaiko from Fukuoka is different. The taste is richer and it is slightly spicy, thus it's perfect to go with rice. I fell in love with mentaiko again after having this dish♡

HsuanHsuan: I had Mizutaki in Fukuoka about 6 years ago and I was surprised by the chicken soup as it was so rich and delicious! I've always liked soup-based food, so when I tried the Mizutaki this time, I couldn't stop drinking the soup after taking just a sip. It was served with a generous portion of soup, chicken meatballs and fresh vegetables♪ Also, the sourness of ponzu sauce matched the dish well and it was so good!
