Gather Together


Nabe (鍋) is a winter favorite for a lot of people in Japan.

I think the word Nabe actually refers to the traditional clay pot that people would use to make these soup dishes. But now when people say "Let's do Nabe tonight!," it refers to this dish.


There are a lot of different soups we use for this dish. Some popular soups are Kimchi, Tomato, Soy Milk, and Collagen. It may sound bizarre but it's really good.

My friends and I ate Pork Broth Nabe (photo above) about a month ago...and we got together again for Kimchi Nabe (photo below) a week ago.


My favorite thing about Nabe is that it's just a lot of fun to eat with everyone! We all had a great time eating this yummy dish!

Kinchi nabe is one of my all-time favorites. And to be able to share it with such a group of friends as you were with... Ah, that’s life!

Gotta go now and find some tissue. Your nabe must have been spicy. Those bottom photos gave me a runny nose.

Guess what my “word verification” is (really! I swear!): spoon.

I really like soup but there are something weird about it. I will eat it but I think that I have to know the ingredients.
