Pickled ginger madness

I have blogged about Yoshinoya some time back (make that last year... how time flies!) and was particularly engrossed in their pickled ginger which - as I learned from the comments to that post - was actually an appetizer.

But I got so hooked into the pickled ginger that I mix it up with my rice and beef gyudon! And that's not all. Officemate Francis also developed a taste for this appetizer; we'd dump generous amounts into our bowls.

We consume almost half of a box of ginger after a meal!

I haven't seen this being sold in supermarts. Where o where can I buy some?!


  1. Keep eating ginger it is healthy!
    Just a bit surprised it has a red color.

    For over two thousand years Chinese Medicine has recommended ginger to treat a number of health problems including abdominal bloating, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, and rheumatism. Ginger is also used in the Ayurvedic and Tibetan systems of medicine for the treatment of inflammatory joint diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism and a variety of other conditions.

  2. grabe ubos, sa bagay ako din marami kumain ng ginger sa yashinoya pero record break ka, hehe. di ko pa nasubukan ganun karami!

  3. yum yum yum! Is it hot?

    In my opinion, the sawsawan makes the meal! hehe

    Does it taste anything like atchara???

  4. Sidney, thank you for this information!

    Iskoo, dalawa naman kami nyan :-)

    Alternati, actually it's more sour than hot when you eat it by itself. But when taken with rice and gyudon, it's great! We even add chili seasoning to make it spicy.

  5. Wow talaga Mama Jenn? Masarap namnamin yung beef gyudon nila. Binubudburan namin ng spice with the ginger on the side. Ok naman. Actually my wife also loves to eat there.

  6. truly, sir nick. i'm not that adventurous in eating.. but i got a bit curious. maybe i could try this some time..

  7. masarap yan, kasama ng pritong isda atsaka mainit na kanin!!!! hayyyyyyy.. the simple pleasures.

  8. Hi Dessagirl. Try the beef gyudon and munch on a strip of ginger for starters.

    Ate Sienna! Thanks for dropping by ha. Asan yung pritong isda? Extra rice nga hehehe

    Hi! Loved the Yoshinoya post. (gyudon junkie ini!) You can buy the pickled ginger (it's called benishoga or myoga in Nihongo) at Okame at Park Square II, the Japanese food section at Rustan's Fresh - Makati, or in the refrigerated case of any branch of Sakura.

  10. Midge! Wow thanks for that tip! Yesss! And thanks for dropping by! Do visit again!
