Yamaki’s comment: Katsuobushi, salted kelp, and tenkasu, the umami of each of them comes to you.
A dish that makes you want to scratch it. The fact that it can be easily made with ingredients that tend to be left over in the refrigerator,
The fact that you can enjoy the texture was also highly evaluated. Menu name: Kaki no Tane and Katsuobushi Donburi / Ranma-san

It is a dish that becomes a habit. If you add dashi, you can also eat it as dashi chazuke,
It is also a nice point that you can enjoy it twice at once. Also, by dissolving the wasabi in the soup stock,
The refreshing flavor was added and I was able to eat it.
