The story behind Ochazuke


I first discovered Ochazuke when I read one of Haruki Murakami’s works. Was it ‘Dance Dance Dance’? Well, I’m not entirely sure… But I do know, for certain, that I thoroughly enjoy how he allows me to visualise all the food(s) he describes in his writing.

In recent years, I’ve taken a liking to preparing Ochazuke for myself whenever I have hunger pangs. It’s probably the simplest meal one can ever have! And it has kinda settled in as one of my comfort food(s).

For those of you who aren’t so sure of what it is, Ochazuke derives from from o + cha (tea) + tsuke (submerge). You basically pour hot tea over cooked rice with whatever savoury toppings you fancy!

Personally for me, it’s usually a combination of leftover rice, brown rice green tea and furikake.

Here’s a photo of the dish from taste-of-japan.blogspot.sg.


I know I hardly say anything on this space, but I suddenly felt like it. Probably inspired by the book I’m currently reading. But till then!

Chazuke (茶漬け, ちゃづけ) or ochazuke (お茶漬け, from o + cha tea + tsuke submerge) is a simple Japanese dish made by pouring green tea, dashi, or hot water over cooked rice, roughly in the same proportion as milk over cereal, usually with savoury toppings.

Common toppings include Japanese pickles such as tsukemono, umeboshi, nori (seaweed), furikake, sesame seeds, tarako and mentaiko (salted and marinated Alaska pollock roe), salted salmon, shiokara (pickled seafood), scallions and wasabi.

The dish is easy to make and provides a way to use leftover rice as a quick snack. It is also known as cha-cha gohan.

This dish first became popular in the Heian period, when water was most commonly poured over rice, but beginning in the Edo period, tea was often used instead.

In Kyoto, ochazuke is known as bubuzuke. When a Kyoto native asks if a guest wants to eat bubuzuke, it may really mean that the person has overstayed and is being politely asked to leave.

Since the 1970s packaged “instant ochazuke”, consisting of freeze-dried toppings and seasonings, have become popular. (x)

Empire Magazine discusses the gay subtext of 'Captain America: The Winter Solider."

Chris Hewitt: Another core relationship in the film is Captain America and the Falcon.
Helen O'Hara: Do you know what, I may have said this in the main podcast but honestly every beat of their relationship is exactly like a romance. Seriously. They got to ‘meet cute’ running along, then they bond over some spurious shared history, and then it’s all like ‘Oh I’m in real trouble & I just turned up at your door because you’re the one person I could think to go to for help”. And he’s all like “Sure use my shower.” I mean, come on people! And I think it works well using that kind of shorthand to create a kind of a friendship quite quickly. But honestly they are the ‘couple’ in the film.
Chris: It’s interesting though, he spends the entire movie turning down exhortations from Natasha to ask women out, the ENTIRE movie.
Helen: Hey it would be a great political statement if Captain America’s gay.
Chris: “What about such-and-such from statistics?” “No, I’m not interested.” “What about such-and-such? What about your next door neighbour who’s really really hot?”
Ali Plumb: “What about this one-armed cyborg man who you have history with..?”
Chris: “…with the dreamy eyes and long hair.”
Helen: He was looking dreamy it has to be said.
