The other day a friend was asking where she could find Natto in KK. At first I thought it was a drink, just because she said it’s a fermented Soya Bean. I got more puzzled when she said that it’s a food and showed me a link on YouTube on how to eat it. I certainly think it looked like Tempe, only that it’s not “fused” together and it has slime due to the fermenting process. Because I’m a curious cat, I went out and bought it.
This is how they sell it, a pack of three, there’s a bigger packet but I bought a smaller one because I don’t want to waste it if in the event that I don’t really like it. You can get this at Tong Hing near HSBC bank.
The un-opened pack.
Each pack contain natto, mustard and sweet soy sauce. Referring back to my Bahasa Melayu day, mustard is biji sawi.
OK, you need to mixed it all together before consuming it.
After mixing it all up, you can start to see the slime.
A closer look at it.
And you eat it with rice. OK I still prefer tempe over this. I don’t really mind the slime, and it doesn’t taste that bad at all, in fact its tasteless, to me anyway. But I don’t mind having it again. Anything else you want to introduce to me Nat?
