We challenged Chef Israel to create dishes that embodied a New York Japanese Summer for delivery on August 19.
Shalom Japan's menu offers its plant-based New York take on Japanese comfort food.
Mazemen* is “no-broth” ramen, in this case, served with shiitake mushrooms, cucumber, shiso (herb), shishito (mild pepper), sesame seeds, and soy milk and smoked mushroom dashi sauce
Lightly grilled corn with togarashi*, Caesar tofu dressing (tofu, lemon, oil, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar), lime, cilantro
Edamame coated with olive oil and togarashi* seasoning
* see additional menu notes (below) for ingredient details and allergy info
Mazemen means mixed noodle so add the sauce and mix it up
Togarashi is a blend of spices: togarashi (red Japanese chili pepper), nori, white and black sesame, hemp seeds, sansho, ground ginger
This meal contains sesame seeds, soy, mushrooms, and gluten (ramen)
