Make Your Tummy Full with Gozen, a Delicious Japanese Meal Set

Looking to eat Japanese cuisine, but looking for something more filling than a regular serving of sushi? In Japanese culture, gozen would usually refer to a traditional meal set accompanied by soup, rice and two or three side dishes.

What are the components of a gozen meal? Just about any dish that goes well with rice can be the main dish of a gozen set meal. Very often, meat or fish is used as the main dish, but sometimes grilled fish or meat, tempura or sashimi can also be served as the main dish of a gozen set meal.

A variety of soups are often served in the gozen set meal, however, the pinnacle of it usually remains the miso soup: soup that uses the dissolved paste of fermented soybeans as its main ingredient. Seaweed, tofu and vegetables are also often used as ingredients in miso soup. Meanwhile, side dishes are there to balance the nutritional value of the meal, oftentimes they include vegetables. Examples include carrot-stir fry and sweet and spicy burdock.

How do you eat a gozen set meal? Well, first of all, it’s important to keep in mind that you hold bowls of rice and soup while eating. Pinch the dishes with the chopstick and don’t use them like you would with forks. "Triangle eating" is a good way of eating a set meal. You eat rice, the main dish and side dishes little by little evenly.
