Shizuoka local food
Shizuoka local food has recently been popular. Shizuoka oden (a stew-like Japanese dish consisting of fish cake and vegetables) features strong soy sauce and a broth made with beef sinew. Shizuokans use “kuro hampen,” gray sardine cake instead of “hampen,” light puffy white fish cake. Shizuoka oden is served with bonito flakes and green laver powder sprinkled over the dish, which is unique to Shizuoka oden. Abekawa mochi is a sweet known as a Shizuoka specialty and which is a soft rice cake sprinkled with kinako (roasted soy bean powder and sugar) and “an” red bean paste.
