Ramen, gyoza, fried chicken, udon, pork belly buns, and other boldly flavored, stick-to-your ribs dishes comprise these interpretations of Japanese soul food. The antidote to typical refined restaurant fare, this hearty style of comfort food has become popular in the US as street food and in ramen bars. In a unique package that includes a cool exposed binding, Nanban brings home cooks the best of these crave-inducing treats. From pungent kimchi to three types of fried chicken, and with a primer on unique ingredients and substitutions, Nanban is the perfect cookbook for any lover of East Asian food.
