WATCH: Pinoys Try Eating Natto
It's an acquired taste.
Japan is the birthplace of ramen, sushi, takoyaki--all crowd favorites--but it’s also home to natto, a Japanese delicacy made of fermented soybeans. Locals generally eat it during breakfast, either with rice as ulam or on its own with a bit of mayonnaise or mustard. For the uninitiated, a fear of these fermented soybeans might seem ridiculous, but natto is in a league of its own. Sticky, slimy, and delightfully pungent, it definitely ranks high up in the list of acquired tastes. Watch as we ask a few friends to take on the natto challenge!
