Guess what?

Can you guess what this is? This is deep fried Japanese mountain yam grated and rolled with green perilla. We call this food "Yourouage" in Japan. Grated and deep fried yam has a soft chewy texture like rice cakes.

  1. Have never heared about this, but it looks so fine. Is it sweet or salty or bitter? I think I have not seen yam in Hungary :( But in Vienna yes :)

  2. I've never heard of this either, but now I want to try one! I just discovered your blog and all the posts are making me hungry :)

  3. Hello boci
    It tastes like taro itself, but we eat it with a pinch of salt. Did you find a yam in Vienna? I have stayed in Vienna for 2 months, but never saw it at a supermarket. I am interested in a yam in Vienna!
