Cafeteria Series: Moo~

Cafeteria Series is back! Today, we have Hanbagu (ハンバーグ), also called Hamburg Steak. I, on the other hand, like to call it “Hamburger without a bun” 😀

Hanbagu (ハンバーグ)

It’s called Hamburg Steak, but it is actually a popular Salisbury Steak dish in Japan. Like the description on wikipedia, the steak was made of minced meat with other yummy things and covered with a teriyaki-like sauce (not a thick as teriyaki). As you can see, the cafeteria meals also include many different insides. There’s okra (mehhh) on the bottom left, miso soup with vegetables on the bottom right, white rice at the top and that’s right, a cup for water.

I really liked this meal, despite the okra. As you can tell, I don’t really like okra, though I ate it. I ATE IT. My new experience of the day. But otherwise, it was delicious, and even though I was able to indulge in fries and a steak, I also had the rice, miso soup, vegetables and the salad to balance out this meal. In fact, it’s probably only because of the okra that this meal gets a 4/5 ★★★★☆

    I can understand your hesitation with okra since it can often be poorly prepared, leading to a slimy, gooey mess. But have you ever tried fried okra? Because that is a delicious treat that should change the minds of most okra detractors. But then again, fried anything would change anyone’s mind…

      The slimy, gooiness might be what’s turning me off :\ But even so, I had some fried okra and it was still kind of meh. But you know what, I’ll try it again. Maybe my opinion’s changed after eating it those times in Japan.

    I don’t like okra most of the time either, but it is really good in gumbo! I’ve never tried fried okra, I’ll have to give that a try.

    • Amy says:

      What is gumbo?! I know it was a main thing in Princess and the Frog, but I still don’t really know what it is. Actually fried okra is sounding better and better the more I think about it…

      • Allen says:

        It’s basically a stew that’s popular in Creole and Cajun culture (which explains its popularity in Louisiana). And it’s often thickened with okra (due in part to its infamous gooey consistency).
