Nabemono なべ物

Nabemono resembles a stew or soup usually served during the colder seasons commonly kept hot at the dining table by portable stoves, or even cooked at the table giving diners the opportunity to pick the cooked ingredients they want from the pot. Either eaten with the broth or with a dip, further ingredients can also be successively added with rice and ramen being popular final ingredients. This one pot meal makes clean-up easy and the base has many varieties that can last successive meals making this a favorite on my dinning table and is also a fun dish to enjoy out at restaurants from time to time. Pictured here is nabe from Shirokiya a local izakaya chain.


  1. Mmm....looks so delicious! Wish I had some right now!

  2. . . . as a matter of fact I just finished gobbling up a pot of homemade nabe with three kinds of mushrooms, I do love this stuff!
