Afternoon Activity, Monja Yaki! アクティビティ もんじゃ焼き! 

少し前のことですが、午後のアクティビティで「もんじゃ焼き」を食べに行きました。もんじゃ焼きって知っていますか?お好み焼きのように鉄板で焼くのですが、お好み焼きは関西の食べ物ですが、もんじゃ焼きは関東のもので、食事というよりはおやつです!

もちろん、もんじゃ焼き初体験の学生達!暑い中わくわくさあ出発です!

We went to have Monja Yaki the other day as the afternoon activity! Do you know Monja Yaki? It is like Okonomiyaki and it is something you cook on the Teppan (hot plate). Okonomiyaki is from Kansai area and Monja Yaki is actually from Kanto! Monja Yaki is more like afternoon snack rather than a meal!

We were so excited to have Monja Yaki as nobody has eaten this before!

作り方の分からない私たちに、店員さんがデモンストレーションをしてくれました。まずは具だけを鉄板に置き「コテ」で切りながら炒めます。ある程度火が通ったらドーナツ型に具を置き、真ん中に生地を流し込み、混ぜながら仕上げていきます。

The lady from this restaurant has shown us how to make Monja Yaki on Teppan as we did not know how to make it! First you put all the veges and meat/seafood on the Teppan and cook them while you are cutting them on the hot Teppan with your KOTE -special spatula.
