People Are Crazy Over This Popular Cheese Dish in Japan

How can you resist?

Recently, the cheese dish “aligot” has been taking over Japan’s social media and food scene. For people who aren’t familiar with the dish, “aligot” is a French plate that’s made with cheese and mashed potatoes. Since May 4, restaurants in Nagoya -- Tefu Tefu and SADO - Hanare - -- are offering it at affordable prices.

The Aligot Meat Plate (¥1,480, good for two) is served with beef rump and tandoori chicken.

For the Aligot Meat Plate, you can pour as much aligot over the dish as you like.

The rich cheese makes the dish all the more irresistible!

The mild cheese flavor of aligot blends perfectly well with the meat.

This dish is usually offered at ¥1,480. However, if you snap a photo of a well-stretched, 50-centimeter or more aligot cheese string, then post it on social media, the restaurants will charge you only half (¥740) of the normal price.
