Thirst & A Bowl of Rice

I love living a hop , skip and a jump away from an independant cinema. Mainly because they show my kinda screenings that are usually shunned by the big chains.


I am really excited because the Korean film THIRST will be showing there next week and I do so like a decent Vamp tale (pukes at the thought of Twilight...sorry ladies x) Anyway this film is another by Park Chan-Wook of Old boy and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance/Mr Vengeance fame.






I got home super stinking late last night after work, food shopping and brawling with dumb bus drivers but I just had to make one of my fave donburi and a side of fresh veg.




Today I made, Sabayukaridon.
My dear Japanese readers, I am aware that this is not a traditional take on the dish! Remember that I live in London and one needs to hussle when it comes to ingredients!

WHAT IS IN IT?

Rice - duh!

Smoked mackrel (flaked)

Yukari or shiso (I think it is called perilla) in English furikake

Shirogoma (Toasted white sesame)

Finished with a splashing of spring onion.

I am such a massive donburi fan because it is quick to make, helps us use up leftover rice (we cook lots) and it's such a cosy comfort food.

Maybe I shall post some more donburi ideas and pics in the future???

Wish you all a fabulous weekend.

I am off to meet a super duper trooper of an MU blogger tomorrow
