    When I was in Tokyo recently I had lunch at Tokyo Sundubu (http://www.tokyo-sundubu.net/menu.html) and had a delicious sesame sundubu. On the English menu it was listed as ‘Sesame tantan sundub.

    I was wondering if you have heard of anything similar or could name the ingredients?

    The one I had contained pork, tofu, mushrooms, mustard greens, shrimp and a few small scallops. I’m not sure what the sesame came from–the broth was much lighter than regular sundubu (check the pic here: http://www.tokyo-sundubu.net/images/new01/sub_gomatan.jpg)

    Would sesame paste be the key ingredient?

    Thanks!

    lina,

    I wish I could answer you! I have never had the Tokyo Sundubu.

    Is there anybody who knows about this food and the recipe?

    I wonder if this was maybe a Japanese take on sundubu. Have you ever heard of sesame paste being used in Korean cooking?

    Thanks :)

    lina,

    I use raw wild sesame seeds powder(들깨 가루: deul kkae garu) in some vegetable side dishes. I’m going to post the recipes someday in the future. Thank you!
