Q. What are the most popular dishes among Japanese children? When families dine out, where do they go and what do they eat?


A.

When eating at home, Japanese children enjoy both traditional dishes and those of foreign origin, like hamburg steak and curry and rice. Children also enjoy ramen (Chinese noodles with a taste adapted to suit the Japanese palate), spaghetti, and other noodle dishes.

Eating out with the family is always a treat. Japan has many different types of restaurants, including "family restaurants" that serve various Japanese and non-Japanese food. Also popular are restaurants specializing in traditional Japanese dishes, such as sushi, tempura, and noodles made with buckwheat (soba) or flour (udon), and fast-food restaurants serving hamburgers and fried chicken.
