Taste Real Wasabi at Wasabi Cafe in Tottori

wasabi cafe

Hello world. It’s Mr. Wasa……WADA on duty. I will continue our Wasabi trip in Tottori. After the wasabi plantation in the previous wasabi plantation post, I will share our visit at Wasabi Cafe for trying REAL Wasabi!

Wasabi Cafe

It is a very ordinary house, it’d be hard to tell if it is really a cafe or restaurant without this sign below.

A lady welcomed us. Basically she got two menus for meal. One is Wasabi-don  and the other one is Wasabi-tamagokake. Mrs. Wada took Wasabi-don and I took the other one.

This lady then brought us a wasabi root with a grater, to start grating it while waiting for the rest of the meal. Hm? Alright.

Oh, well. It’s still half way done.

Mrs. Wada’s wasabi-don seems quite simple and spicy. It’s just grated wasabi and katsuobushi (bonito flakes) on rice! Possibly the best way to taste wasabi?

My Wasabi-tamagokake don was rather mild. I liked it!

The lady offered us some grapes as we finished the dish. We gratefully accepted her kindness. Also, we had some leftover of the wasabi root so were able to bring it for souvenir (plus she gave us extra! Thank you!).  With it, we had our own wasabi-tamagokake don at home, too.

Lastly

It was a rare experience to taste a real Wasabi. As I mentioned earlier, there are other wasabi plantations/restaurants in Japan. It would be fun to check those place out when you happen to visit Japan.

See you around!

I enjoy both indoor and outdoor stuff. Fishing in summer, Onsen( hot springs) in winter, and driving all year around!

  1. This is so neat! I’ve never tried real fresh wasabi before. I didn’t know you could eat such a large amount of it. Is it mild compared to the wasabi bought in a tube? I’m very curious to try this!
