Traditional Japanese Breakfast Is Not What You’d Expect | Passport Kitchen | Epicurious

Chef Yuji Haraguchi, owner of OKONOMI // YUJI Ramen in New York, returns to Epicurious to make a traditional Japanese breakfast, preparing dishes that are a world away from what a Westerner might expect. Leave the waffle batter in the refrigerator – today himono, miso soup, shiraae, and pickled cucumber come together for an invigorating start to the day.
