I don’t remember when I met this yummy rice seasoning, probably when I started to eat real human food instead of formula in the very early stage. And growing up with bringing a bento box, yukari occasionally appeared on my rice ball or as an accent of my plain rice or omelets, the yukari always cheered me up by just being there. If you are lucky to have some Asian grocery store in your neighborhood, you probably have seen this. For those who have never tried it, I’ll tell you how good it is, so grab it, try it, and start your yummy food adventure with yukari!

Name: Yukari Rice Seasoning
Contains: 0.91 oz (26g)
Price: $1.50~$3 in my neighborhood
Main ingredients: Aka-shiso (perilla red leaf), salt, sugar, monosodium glutamate, malic acid.
Will buy again?: Yes! As the must-have condiments and also just in case I run out of sour-plum pickles! 😛
Unlike the perilla I grow in my balcony, they use red perilla leaves so that yukari rice seasoning has more sour plum pickles like flavor. But, while sour-plum sometimes tries to attack our taste buds for being super sour, yukari rice seasoning has a milder sour level with rich herby flavor. Just a spoonful of seasoning can enhance the flavor and this is why people fell in love with yukari!
Pro: Enhance flavor on rice, vegetables etc. More accessible compared with other rice seasoning flavors.
Con: Gotta be careful with how much you put, since it’s high in salt.
Goes great not only rice but also veggies!:D
Enjoy home cooking and your own creation of homemade food:)
