The cool breezes of early autumn call for a bowl of warm soup. Both the Chinese and the Japanese are known for their love for delicious stocks, but Japanese stocks—usually made from kombu and tuna—tend to be more straightforward and versatile compared to their Chinese counterparts. Boasting refreshing flavours that bring out the umami of ingredients, they go well with a variety of Japanese foods.

With A Bite of Japan, from Oct 16 to Nov 4, city’super introduces an assortment of authentic Japanese stock brands and newly launched ingredients that can help you make a satisfying meal for family and friends.

Hybrid Ham from Tokyo

Otamaham is famous for its selection of delicious ham and bacon. The meat has the right balance of fat and muscle, and is rich in flavour. The brand uses the famed Tokyo X pork to make its products. Tokyo X is the name of a successful new breed of pig that is a hybrid of three different black pig species, as a result of an experiment conducted by the Tokyo Metropolitan Livestock Experiment Station for seven years from 1990. Tokyo X pork is juicy and tender, and combines the best of the three breeds of black pig – Berkshire’s fine muscle fibres, Duroc’s marbling and Beijing Black’s succulent fat. 

Raw materials come from Tokyo and production is also completed in Tokyo, where pork made into ham and bacon is smoked for two nights without steaming or cooking to retain its original flavour. It is the breakfast of choice for many: once it’s pan-fried, the meaty flavour and the aroma of the fat bring the ham and bacon to life.

Double-baked Japanese Cheese Tart

For an oven-hot cheese tart as afternoon tea without leaving the comfort of your home, just keep in stock Tarte Soleil’s Tarte Fromage and Tarte Sweet Potato. Simply put the tart into the microwave and heat for 10 to 12 seconds whenever you feel like a sweet treat.

The crusts of Tarte Soleil’s tarts have all been baked twice. The tarts taste good even when served cold, but the butter aroma of the crust is more prominent after reheating. The sweet potato tart is made from Naruto Kintoki sweet potatoes from Tokushima Prefecture, and has a gentle sweetness like a cream cheese tart. 

*Tarte Soleil’s tarts are available at Times Square, Harbour City and New Town Plaza stores.

Seasonal Obusedo Chestnut Confectionery

Autumn is the season for chestnuts. And to people in Nagano Prefecture, Obusedo is practically a synonym for chestnut, as the best-known traditional chestnut confectionery brand in the region. The region is famous for presenting chestnuts as tributes to the Tokugawa family during the Edo period. 

Obusedo has been a prestigious local sake brewery since the early 18th century, and was known as a patron of the painter Hokusai. It was when food-canning technology and industrial sake brewing were introduced that Obusedo began to produce chestnut confectionery. Its signature Kurikanoko Chestnut Yokan and Cake have brought the brand nationwide fame, but its products are all still made in the town of Obuse.
