By the way, did you notice that we call bread “pan”? As you know, Japan has imported many things from Western countries and sometimes the original name is kept. “Pan” comes from the Portuguese “pão” when missionaries from Portugal brought bread to Japan in the 1500s. However, there are many Japanese people who believe that “pan” is an English word. So don’t be surprised if your friend asks you, “do you want to eat pan for breakfast tomorrow?”
“Senbei” is a kind of rice cracker. Often it’s salty and seasoned with soy sauce. Senbei goes very well with Japanese green tea.
Japanese people love curry rice, but also curry noodles, made with noodles like ramen and udon. We also add soup to curry so that the taste becomes mild.
This is curry udon.
Do you want to try it? Just go to a convenience store. You’ll definitely find instant curry udon noodles.
