Welcome to The Avocado’s weekly discussion of Japanese pop culture! You can’t go wrong with ochazuke! So true, right? Yesterday was cold, dreary, and just all around gloomy, so I tried making ochazuke for the first time. Now I can confidently say that it is perfect comfort food. I topped my rice with umeboshi, pickled cucumber, tenkatsu, and a dash of salmon furikake rice seasoning. For the tea, I chose genmaicha because I wanted a slightly roasted flavor. It was delicious! As I look ahead at the weather forecast, I can already see that I’ll be having more bowls of ochazuke to help get me through April. I didn’t use a recipe, but if you want some ideas for how to make this wonderful dish, check out this recipe.
And, as always…

Happy Wednesday! 🙂
