So, what is okaka?

Okaka is a traditional Japanese seasoning that is made by mixing bonito flakes with soy sauce. The result is a savory and slightly smoky flavor that is often used to enhance the taste of rice, noodles, and vegetables. The texture of okaka can range from coarse to fine, depending on how finely the bonito flakes are grated. It is also sometimes mixed with other ingredients, such as green onions or sesame seeds, to add extra flavor and complexity. With its unique umami taste and versatile use, okaka is a must-try ingredient for any food enthusiast looking to explore Japanese cuisine.
