1. Sake and Wine
Selected from Japan and all around the world, Ethan’s Gourmet has a wide selection of sake and wine.
2. Instant Claypot Rice
The first product that caught my eye was the Japanese instant claypot rice. All I have to do it to mix the packet of rice and seasoning together and cook in the microwave for 10 mins. No water is needed, so cool lah!
3. Tajima Beef
“Tajima-gyu” cows originally came from Tajima (Kobe), a mountainous region with few open fields facing the Sea of Japan. Tajima cattle is the same cattle as Kobe, raised and bred in Hyogo Prefecture, except the difference in Beef Marbling Score (BMS). With selective breeding, handling and feeding process involved, Tajima beef is one of the finest beef in the world. There is also Shirobuta Pork (White pig) which is prized for its tenderness and sweetness. You can also buy online.
4. Premium Japanese rice
Ethan’s Gourmet sells premium Japanese rice including Niigata Koshihikari (the best selling rice in Japan), Hokkaido Nanatsubosh (light in taste and less sticky, Best for onigiri and bento), Hokkaido Yumepirika (looks like white shinny snow and stronger flvour than Koshihikari).
5. Anpanman candy & chocolate
Now, the cheerful hero has his own line sweet snack!
The difference between the gold packet Kyokyoku soba and the white packet Nanawari soba is the former contains 90% buckwheat (giving it a richer, stronger flavour) while the latter contains 70% buckwheat. To cook, just put it in boiling water for a few minutes until soft or to your personal preference.
7. Organic Vegetables
With a organic range of vegetables hailing from Japan, you can now make a great dishes. These vegetables are grown on farmland where no chemical fertilizer or agricultural chemicals have been added and cultivated without chemical fertilizer during the present cropping season. I stir fried the frozen organic spinach, and blanched my broccoli to make smoked duck salad.
8. Frozen Grilled Unagi
When it comes to grilling fish, the Japanese have mastered the art. Well grilled unagi combines a rich flavor with an appealing texture. Frozen grilled unagi is the most convenient dish because I can just put it in the microwave to grill for another 10 minutes and serve on top of warm rice.
