8/24/2016 – World Wednesday – Japanese


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

In the last day before LL70, the World Wednesday Maru makes its 27th stop in the Land of the Rising Sun. It should be noted that you can check out our Sushi page for an additional quizzing. Also, I’m sure I’m missing some major Japanese food. I’m sure that I’ll have to cover more Japanese foods in past and future installments.


1. Derived from the Latin for “times”, name the battered Japanese dish seen here.

Question 1

2. Japanese for “pork cutlet”, name the dish seen here of a breaded and deep-fried pork cutlet. The dish is usually served with a side of miso soup and a large helping of cabbage.

Question 2

3. Oh, and miso. What food item is fermented to result in miso soup?

4. Meaning “grilled as you like”, name the savory pancake, filled with cabbage and pork, and topped with fish flakes, dried seaweed, mayo, and a Worcester-ish sauce. It’s often considered a comfort food dish in Japan, but it is more associated with the cities of Hiroshima and Kansai.

Question 4

5. I’ve cropped out most of the names of the Japanese noodles seen here. What are their full names?

Question 5

6. What sticky-rice cake dish, which can molded into desserts like wagashi or daifuku, is being used in the ice cream variety seen here?

Question 6

7. Give the name for the bowl seen here. It is used in Japanese cuisine as either a bowl for rice, or for a cup used to drink tea? Its name is Japanese for “tea bowl”.

Question 7

Tomorrow: With LL70 officially starting, FCT will be moving into its mysterious time. Since I don’t want to have questions for that day that might repeat for that day’s questions, I will not post what subject I have the day before. You get to be surprised day of!


Good luck with LL70! My hint for you: go check out the questions from this site, and look up the Billboard #1 hits for 2016. And probably some news events too.


1. Tempura
2. Tonkatsu
3. Soybeans
4. Okonomiyaki
5. Udon, Ramen, Soba
6. Mochi
7. Chawan
