Thank you Damien, you are too kind. I did just order two cans from the link Spork-san sent me.

If what you ordered isn't what you were looking for, let me know.

As I recall, FiFi, the fried tofu pouches in the can are flavored quite strongly compared to the refrigerated type. Give them a quick rinse, pat dry, and then fill. With either type, you can also reserve some of the juice in them, to both flavor the sushi rice or cook any filling ingredients.

The most common side dish to a bowl of ramen in Japan is gyoza, but in Osaka and the Kansai region, it is ramen and 2 inarizushi.

Since my favorite dish at The Mustard Seed is Chicken Osaka...sounds appropriate!

"Bite-sized pieces of chicken breast sautéed in butter, ginger sauce, and lemons. Served with a tangy mustard sauce."

Thank you for the additional tips on making the inarizushi.

I eat it every other week. About 6 of us order take out at work, it is my go to with fried rice and Asian slaw. I also go nuts for the fried green beans. Takes me two days to eat the whole meal and it is wonderfully lemony!

After wearing myself out and working up an appetite through the morning hours with table tennis today, I went to hang out at an Aloha Festival being held this weekend. I spotted the booth of one of the few Hawaiian restaurants in our city. It's owned by the scariest-looking Samoan twin brothers I've ever seen, but they're friendly and funny. And they grub it real good. I bought a standard lunch plate.

2 scoops rice (with black sesame seed furikake) and 1 scoop macaroni salad. Kalua pig, chicken katsu, and a wedge of pineapple. I also bought a paper bag with half a dozen malasadas. To kick back on a lawn to watch hula dancers on stage, I had a bowl of shaved ice with raspberry and watermelon syrup.

That looks good.

We ended up with fish and chips, dessert was Cambazola Cheese with lightly sugared strawberries.
