Fermented food 醗酵食品 

It was a sunny and hot day yesterday. We were almost closed yesterday as the water stopped suddenly in the morning. lol We are using bottled water for food but we can not wash tools and plates without water! We wondered if we had a notice of water cut but we did not. Finally we have found the problem caused by pump. Luckily a three wheel driver who knows well about mechanics solved the problem and we could open the restaurant yesterday. Thank you, Mahattaya! Though such unexpected things happened in Sri Lanka, it grows us to think and act flexibly. :>

By the way, do you know Miso - soybean paste is a fermented food? There are many fermented food like wine, cheese, pickles, yogurt, soy sauce, and etc. I tried to have some of them for my health but sometimes I feel lazy to have them everyday. Only I am trying to have Miso soup twice a day and I think it helps me a lot. When my friend from Germany got sick and lost her appetite during her stay in Sri Lanka, Miso soup was only food she could eat. I don't know the scientific efficacy though I was happy to know it helped her.
This is also a fermented food Korean famous pickles - Kimchi. It was a home cooked present and so delicious! I could not stop eating. Thank you so much!

Katsuo-bushi (dried bonito) is also fermented food, isn't it ? I like combination of miso soup and onigiri with okaka, both of which happen to contain fermented food.

Hi Sly pan! After a long absence, how have you been? Yes, and Dried bonito is used for soup stock as well. You also like Natto (Fermented soybeans), don't you?

I'm fine and busy now a days. I am going to South Africa in the next week again. Yes, I like Natto too. As a matter of fact, I had Natto/Okura Curry Rice in yesterday's lunch.
