Delivery to UK and USA* only
This box contains 1kg of bonito flavoured soup stock, or dashi (as it is known in Japanese). Use with miso paste to make miso soup, or with soy sauce and red pepper to make jjigae. Can also be used in soup bases for noodle dishes. Highly versatile, dashi is one of the most essential seasonings used in Japanese cuisine.

VARU-ID: #15580


Dashi in Japanese cuisine is similar to chicken or vegetable stock in Western cuisines, as it is what provides the flavour base for many Japanese dishes. Authentic dashi made at home involves stewing umami-rich ingredients such as bonito fish, kombu kelp seaweed and shiitake mushrooms in water and allowing the flavours to infuse. If that seems too bothersome, then why not try some of the instant dashi items Japan Centre has to offer?

it's just what I expected, although it's more expensive but I guessed everything has gone up so much more now since the pandemic, however for the convenience of purchasing, I will absolutely use your service again.
Very good value for money for such an authentic ** product. Will definitely buy again.
Good value in the economy pack.
good way to get the dashi stock and convenient
Impossible to make truly the home taste of Japan without the broth flavoured with bonito (*** *** ***).
Perfect for fish dashi
Ideally too big for individual but 500gm box would be nice
Excellent products!
Wicked in risotto
Good flavour and great to be able to buy a larger quantity.
Undoubtedly tasty and you can use for almost anything savory to make a robust base of taste.\nIt goes well with any vegetables, fishes, meats and you can combine this with other seasonings such as soy sauce and miso. Even simply pouring onto and mixing with boiled leafy vegetables, e.g., spinach, will make a healthy garnish with a great flavour.
Use it for day-to-day cooking.\n\nQuality is good as far as I can tell.
