(PRODUCT SHARING) Kameya Hon Wasabi from Shizuoka Prefecture at METRO IPPIN

I love wasabi so much that I wish to brush my teeth with it.
I’m just being expressive. But my love for wasabi is undeniable. I would go for anything wasabi. Whenever it is available as an option.
.

Kameya Hon Wasabi ($7) from Shizuoka Prefecture showcases the wonderful pungency and aroma that I love about wasabi. These wasabi from Mt. Amagi is known to be one of the best around.
.

The top three factors for wasabi production are rich water, healthy seedlings and good management. The water is highly suitable for wasabi production because Mt. Amagi has great precipitation, and rich in nutrients spring water at 12 to 13 degrees celsius all year round.
.

Kameya Hon Wasabi comes in a tube packed in a pretty box. The common way to have this, is to dap sashimi with it before eating. I like to mix this with mayonnaise to get my perfect wasabi mayonnaise for fried food. I also like to mix it with butter and topped it on grilled prawns. If you are feeling adventurous, try adding this into a cake batter. It works deliciously! Perhaps I should try making wasabi macaron or wasabi pudding next. 😋

(PRODUCT SHARING) Kameya Wasabi Dressing from Shizuoka Prefecture at METRO IPPIN

How to make wasabi lovers eat more vegetables? Give them Kameya Wasabi Dressing!

Kameya Wasabi dressing ($10) is made using the best quality wasabi grow on Mt. Amagi in Shizuoka Prefecture, that is blessed with abundant water from Kakita River formed by the groundwater of Mt. Fuji.

This dressing is light in consistency and uses an aromatic brewed vinegar as its base. Along with the Japanese soy sauce and horse radish wasabi, this is an appetizing concoction with good sour tang, balanced saltiness and subtle spiciness.
.

I often use this with my salad greens, and boiled or grilled vegetables. Just a splash of it gives them extra tastiness without unnecessary calories. I also like to use this as a sashimi dip or drizzle it on cold tofu that is topped with lots of spring onions as a healthy appetizer.

Kameya Wasabi Dressing can be found at Ippin Section of Metro Centerpoint Level 4.

(PRODUCT SHARING) miu Tomato Juice (Gold) by Nagoya LIDA Farm at METRO IPPIN

This is a holy grail for someone starting on tomato juice!

I have been drinking tomato juice which I believe for its health benefits, so looking out for more varieties and taste testing become relatable to me.

How often do you see tomato juice being bottled up so beautifully? Only the Japanese would and this miu Tomato Juice Gold ($40) from Nagoya Lida Farm is absolutely stunning with its long flute-like bottle. It bottle contains 300ml of tomato juice that is translucent.

miu Tomato Juice Gold has got gold standard because it is made from cherry tomatoes harvested in Nagoya, which is famous for their high sugar content. The sugar is produced naturally with the help of organic fertilizer, bonito and kelp. This tomato juice has no additional sugar, salt, coloring or preservatives. It is also additive and chemical free.

miu Tomato Juice tasted light and refreshing, almost like a tomato drink instead of juice. This is a little different from Ajikoi Tomato Juice (that I reviewed previously) which is thicker in viscosity and heavier in taste. Best to serve this tomato juice chilled or you can use it as a cocktail ingredient.

miu Tomato Juice (Gold) can be purchased at Ippin Section of Metro Level 4.
