Beef & enoki mushroom rolls

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 21, 2012

Japanese is probably my favourite type of cuisine, although I eat and like pretty much everything since I’m such a glutton. There’s just so many dishes that I crave for all the time like the tonkatsu I mentioned in yesterday’s post, and the various sushi posts I’ve had in the past, even udons, sukiyaki, yakitori…the [...]

Steak sandwich with fried egg, beetroot and spinach
