Hand roll sushis, or temaki (手巻き寿司) sushi, is a popular type of sushi made by wrapping sushi rice and any ingredient of choice into a unique cone shape. Apart from preparing the sushi rice and prepping the other ingredients, you really don't have to be a master sushi chef to make hand roll sushis. The best part about it is that they are also incredibly fun to assemble once the prepwork is done!
- Japanese Rice
- Sushi vinegar
- Kewpie Mayonnaise
- Any filling of choice (crabstick, salmon, ebikko etc.)

Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is the soul food of Osaka, Japan. Literally translating to "cooked as you like", any toppings and ingredients (from meat and seafood) can be added to the batter and cabbage to create this delicious, savory pancake.
$78.00 (U.P. $84.80)
1. Otafuku Okonomiyaki Sauce (300g)
2. Futaba Hana Katsuo (Bonito Flakes) (80g)
3. Yamahide Aosa Ko (Seaweed Powder) (200g)
4. Nisshin Komugi Ko (Wheat Flour) (1KG)
5. Kewpie Mayonnaise Japan Label (450g)
6. Katokichi Premium Soba
Other ingredients to prepare
- Egg (4x)
- Cabbage (400g)
- Chinese yam, grated (50g)
- Bonito stock (400ml)
- Pork belly slices (or other desired ingredients)
- Cut the cabbage into 1 cm chunks.
- To create the batter, mix the bonito stock with 200g of Nisshin Komugi Ko and grated Chinese yam.
Add 1/4 of the batter (about 150 ml), an egg, and cabbages to a bowl and stir quickly with a spoon. (Tip: Mix it by scooping it up from the bottom so that the batter contains air!)
- Heat the hot plate to 180-200 degrees and oil the plate. Pour the batter into a circle with a diameter of about 18 cm, then line up the pork belly on top.
- After about 3 minutes, insert a spatula vertically from the side and turn it over toward yourself. Then, cover and steam for 4 to 5 minutes to make the cabbage soft and juicy.
Flip it over again and grill for 2-3 minutes to complete.
- Top with Otafuku Okonomiyaki Sauce and Kewpie Mayonnaise. Garnish with Yamahide Aosa Ko (Seaweed Powder) and Futaba Hana Katsuo (Bonito Flakes).
This bundle can even be used to make another popular street food in Japan: yakisoba.
Yakisoba is a classic Japanese noodle dish whereby noodles are stir-fried with pork and vegetables. The dish first appeared in food stalls in Japan during the post World War II period and is incredibly popular today as a street food.
Soba in yakisoba refers to Chinese noodles (chuuka soba) made from wheat flour. Although yakisoba is not traditionally made with buckwheat soba, here's a recipe for something slightly different from your usual yakisoba!
