|[The legend of Chikuwa1] [The legend of Chikuwa2]|
Chikuwa is a traditional Japanese food shaped like a 12cm tube. It is about 2.5cm in diameter and characterized by its center hole. If it is not about a 12cm-tube with a center hole, then it is not Yamasa chikuwa.
It is always best to check that you have the real thing. If you don't, then you may not be eating authentic traditional Japanese food.
Chikuwa is made from ground fish meat seasoned, wrapped around a bamboo spit and cooked. After cooking, the spit is removed and the hole left open. Nowadays, the bamboo spit has been replaced by metal and the chikuwa are rotated by machine as they cook. The cooked chikuwa are cooled, wrapped and shipped. Chikuwa are usually not eaten fresh cooked, rather they are better when served chilled.
