Elementary School Lunch: 02/18 - The Wonder Mouka

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

Today, one of our students, who pretty much never eats the school lunch, totally broke his trend when he saw this gorgeous bits of fried mouka on our plates. I'm not sure what possessed him, but he picked a good day, because it was delicious. (Just to be clear, all students are required to eat the school lunch unless they have severe allergies or something. This student is a special case.)

I'm not sure what kind of fish mouka is, to be totally honest. I couldn't find a translation anywhere. If you know what it is, please let me know! We had that with some salad (slathered in sesame seed dressing), and a somen noodle soup. The soup itself was a plain seaweed sort of broth, and it had bits of seaweed floating in there with naruto, carrot, spring onion, shiitake mushroom, and of course, the noodles, which are super thin and made from wheat flour. As for the salad, it was spinach, bean sprouts, and carrots. Simple, but tasty.
