IS JAPAN COOL? TOKYO
1. A type of Japanese cuisine made with various food ingredients, mixed into thin wheat flour batter, and cooked on a flat cast-iron grill.
2. Monja is available in many places throughout Japan. However, the original monja is believed to be fu-no-yaki in Edo (old Tokyo), which became well known as the soul food of downtown Tokyo.
3. In Tsukishima, an area called “Monja Street” features more than 70 monja restaurants. Thus, Tsukishima is also known as “monja town.”
4. Monja flavor usually has a Worcestershire sauce base. Recently, however, sweet flavors like strawberry-milk monja are becoming popular.
Note: Monja is very hot right after cooking. Be careful eating.
