Budget-Pleasing Fried Sardines
Nine small sardines “Ko-Iwashi” are sold by 100 JPY.
I like sardines because the taste is so good (it goes without saying) and even it is very budget-pleasing.
This package contains nine small sardines removed the head and viscera, which is sold at 100 JPY. (about 0.8 EUR, 0.85 USD)
Outstanding cost performance from Aichi Prefecture!
Here I prefer breadcrumbs of western style such as for schnitzel than Japanese Panko.
There are noticeable difference between Panko and breadcrumbs in texture.
Count the number from one to nine in Japanese.
1=ichi, 2=ni, 3=san, 4=yon (shi), 5=go, 6=roku, 7=nana (shichi, hichi), 8=hachi, 9=kyu
4 and 7 has some pronunciations, depended on the region.
Usually it is not too much consciousness, I’ve tried to count aloud.
redulted “ichi ni san shi go roku hichi hachi kyu”
There are another pronunciations of Japanese traditional style.
1=hitotsu (hi), 2=futatsu (fu), 3=mittsu (mi), 4=yottsu (yo), 5=itsutsu (itsu), 6=muttsu (mu), 7=nanatsu (na), 8=yattsu (ya), 9=kokonotsu (ko)
