Mimigaa

My wonderful Japanese friends, Ryo and Namie took my to a fantastic meal at an Osaka-style kushi katsu bar in Tokyo. The majority of the fare is delicious meat/seafood/veggies fried on sticks. However, they also ordered mimigaa. Basically, it is very thinly sliced pig’s ear that is pickled and served in a sesame sauce (think pig ear ceviche). The texture is chewy/crunchy as you would expect when munching down on cartilege. It was unique and strangely addicting.
