It is around this time that the oden season is about to end, but I found such a product at a convenience store. Oden in a vertical cup as if it contains coffee or milk drinks.
This product was just released in January this year, and its name is "Japanese traditional food oden". This is an oden drink (?) That contains 1 egg, 1 radish, 1 chikuwa, and 1 konjac in soup stock. The price is 298 yen (tax included).
To eat, open the lid a little and heat it in the microwave. The standard is 500W for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
Now you have an easy-to-eat oden!
I was happy that the whole egg was in it. The soup stock is soaked up to the core, and the well-cooked yolk is also moist.
Radish stewed so soft that it is difficult to keep its shape. It has a mellow texture that you can crush with your tongue and drink.
The soft and fluffy chikuwa is perfectly sized and responsive enough to eat.
Konjac that keeps its elasticity even if the dashi is soaked. This presence is indispensable for oden.
There are 4 types of oden that can be said to be representative players of oden, and a cup that intensively satisfies the desire for oden. With a voluminous feel that does not seem to be 93 kcal in total, it is also suitable for filling a small stomach during a diet.
Oden is also sold at convenience stores next to the cash register, but it is also a little troublesome to choose the ingredients, take them in a cup, and carry them with care so that the soup stock does not spill even after buying. On the other hand, with this product, you don't have to worry about purchasing or carrying it. Moreover, it can be stored at room temperature for about half a year. It's safe to say that oden is disappearing from the convenience store.
As an aside, I also recommend adding sake to the remaining soup stock. Because it is a cup, you can drink it as it is and feel wise and tasting.
