Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Shoyu based soup is spiced up with Sichuan pepper to give it sour and spicy flavor. Plus, the aromatic flavor of sesame adds a rich nuttiness to the dish. Many shops across Japan specialize in variations of this rich and satisfying dish. Now you can try it at home!’
Very curious about this one – shall we continue?
