Ojiya-Style Pacific Saury Takikomi Gohan is a dish made by Sōma Yukihira against Akira Hayama and Ryō Kurokiba during the 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn Election's Main Tournament: Finals.


Sōma's dish for the 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn Election Finals. Sōma used rice bran to allow him to forge his own pacific saury flavor rather than rely on the taste of a fresh saury like his opponents. Combined with a special dashi using soy milk, Sōma created an ojiya styled dish that went toe-to-toe with Akira Hayama's and Ryō Kurokiba's dishes.

Real FactsEdit

  • Ojiya, more commonly known as Zosui, is a pre-cooked Japanese rice dish where the rice is cooked again to a more porridge consistency.[1]
  • Nukazuke (糠漬け) are a type of Japanese pickle, made by fermenting vegetables in rice bran (nuka). Almost any edible vegetable may be pickled through this technique, though traditional varieties include eggplant, Japanese radish (daikon), cabbage, and cucumber. The taste of nuka pickles can vary from pleasantly tangy to very sour, salty and pungent. These pickles also retain their crispness which adds to their popularity. Fish nukazuke is also common in the north part of Japan. Sardine, mackerel, Japanese horse mackerel and Pacific saury are frequently used. Some people pickle meat in nuka-bed.[2]
  • Soy Milk, also known as Soya Milk (豆漿 or 豆奶 in Chinese while 豆乳 in Japanese) or Soymilk, is a plant milk made from dried soybeans. Originating from China, the drink consists of the same amount of protein as cow milk. It can replace animal protein and other sources of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. Compared to cow milk, Soy Milk has little saturated fat and no cholesterol. Because of this, it also becomes an alternative drink in China, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Indonesia, and Malaysia. [3]
