I ate "New York Pork Bowl" with pork pastrami (smoked pork) at the beef bowl chain store "Sukiya". Smoky and spicy smoked pork with crispy raw onions.
The selling price is 580 yen (tax included, same below) for a regular single item, and 720 yen for a set with onion soup and soft-boiled egg. This time I ordered a set. Before meals, take a break with warm soup.
The main dish, pork pastrami, is smoked with pepper, paprika and coriander. The pork shoulder meat, which has been cooked for a long time at low temperature and softened, is sliced for easy eating and combined with a heap of sliced onions. It is seasoned with a sauce made from Sukiya's special bonito stock and wasabi mayonnaise with soy sauce added to the secret flavor. The atmosphere is a mix of Japanese and Western styles, including the decorative green onions.
Pastrami not only has a strong flavor of smoke and spices, but also has a strong saltiness, which makes it a good snack for beer and wine.
If it is left as it is, it will be a little salty as a side dish of rice, but if you eat it with sliced onion, it will be refreshing and easy to eat.
In addition, wasabi mayonnaise adds a refreshing flavor and a mellow texture, making it easier to carry to your mouth. I learned that pastrami goes well with wasabi, just as roast beef goes well with horseradish.
You can break the onsen tamago into small bowls and grab the smoked eggs one by one, or put them on a bowl and break the yolks and sprinkle them on the whole to make them mellow. This is also a perfect match.
