Hopefully, you already know about Natto 納豆 (Fermented soybeans). It is a popular Japanese food and known as a healthy food, but some people don′t like the strong smell and sticky taste.
If you have not had natto before or if you have issues with natto, you shouldn′t eat normal natto of general supermarkets (cheap natto, 3 packs about 100 yen). Instead, I will show you best natto for beginner.
This is a real traditional natto. 1 pack costs about 200 yen.
Natto was made with straw long time ago. Unfortunately it is difficult to find it these days. Manufactures usually use plastic instead of straw.
Honestly this straw natto is much better taste and flavor than plastic one.
Why not try straw natto in Japan?
Open the straw package. Usually small packs of sauce and mustard are included.
Put the natto into a cup, and then mix with the sauce and mustard.
You are ready to eat. Put it on rice.
