Welcome to our first food blog! Entertainment isn’t all we cover! Now that we’re starting them, they will always be posted on Saturdays, but not every Saturday. Just whenever we try something new or have a recipe to share, it will be posted on a Saturday!
Today I tried Shiro Miso Soup and Curry with Rice. I’m going to start with the curry and rice first.
Golden Curry is the brand I used. Before, we had tried the “medium” and this time we went up to medium hot. Cameron loves spicy things and has a very high tolerance. I want to catch up with him so this is one way to do it. We purchased pork slices and boiled potatoes to put in the curry. We also added 4 chocolate kisses for flavor. Never knew chocolate could make a “dinner” taste so fantastic but damn, does it do the job. We had stick rice with the curry and I was in heaven. It wasn’t too spicy honestly. I felt a heat in my mouth but it was very pleasant. I actually wished it was hotter. LOL When I was growing up, I hated rice but I cleared my plate with that curry. I think I’ve found a new comfort food!
This was the Shiro Miso Soup. It was an instant soup where you just add boiling water. I was excited to try it since the brand was Japanese. I’ve been wanting to try Miso soup for awhile now since I’ve seen them so much on youtube food blogs. It comes out in a powdery form as shown above with dehydrated pieces of seaweed and fish. The smell reminded me of cooked broccoli but not in a bad way (i HATE cooked broccoli lol). It also smelled fishy which was to be expected.
The soup transformed once I added the boiling water. Suddenly there was little fish cakes floating everywhere three times the size they were as well as good size seaweed pieces. Using chopsticks I stirred it thoroughly then took the plunge and drank directly from the bowl. At first it reminded me of clam chowder but extremely watered down. I think that’s due to the fishy taste. I definitely enjoyed the soup itself. The little fish cakes tasted like water potatoes honestly. The seaweed pieces were a disappointment though, they definitely tasted like cooked broccoli. Thankfully it wasn’t to the degree that made me gag, it was just slightly unpleasant but not inedible. I can tell it’s a cheap soup but for a cheap japanese soup in america, it wasn’t half bad. Not my first choice but if there’s nothing else to eat in the house, I wouldn’t be opposed to eating it. That sounds worse than it actually is intended. Haha. It’s just not something that makes me want to come back to it repeatedly but it doesn’t make me not want to eat it at all either.
Side note, I was quite proud of myself when I was able to translate the characters on the miso soup package that said “miso” LOL I recognized them from my lessons and I got so excited. Hehe.
That’s it for our first food blog! Have you tried these products? What did you think of them and do you prepare it differently or add something to it? Let us know in the comments!
