Why Edamame ?

edamame.jpg

The reason for this article is that I ate Edamame today. Why do Izakaya often give us edamame as otoushi, or a kind of cover charge making appetizer food ? I've been enjoying Izakaya since I became a college student in Tokyo, it means this unique custom of Izakanya, giving us edamame for the first food, has never been changed for such a long time.

When I lived in other countries, I liked hanging out for food and drinks at night. I always missed something at bars overseas, which was EDAMAME !!!

In Japan, I have edamame just for a trivial food to start drinking beer. At the time in other countries, I noticed edamame is really needed to decolate drinking atomosphere and make my mouth get ready for beer. I'm certainly edamame addicted when I drink beer.

It's not especially delicious food at all, but I, or many of Japanese, need edamame for night time booz.

Meanwhile in summer time, I often have edamame with beer and I thinkedamame is really delicious then. It's such a simple food but edamame surely has something important for our izakaya culture.

Interestingly, I recently sometimes hear that people from UK or USA say that edamame is their real favorite food. Unbelievable ! But if it's true, do they like drinking with edamame ? Or do they simply like edamame as a food ??? It's such a mystery for me.

Come visit me in Nasu ! Let's have beer with edamame !

COMMENT

Good point

Good point, I have in the past only eaten edamame here and there at restuarants but now I have seen it in the supermarkets now in the frozen section and always by it now, I have never had it when drinking but now must give it a go. I like snacking when I drink and not have a heavy meal so is shall add this next time I have a drink.. By the way good blog, you have me hooked on readings your posts.

Hello Luke

Thank you for coming and reading. In Japan there are also frozen edamame sold at supermarkets, and they are so cheap. When I was a kid, we used to have it just after picking them from our garden. Not now any more. Your comment is always welcomed.
