>taimeshi

A popular tai preparation.
(Please let me know if y
ou ever get tired of hearing about *&#* tai. I warned you about the Japanese love for tai.)

tai + meshi (cooked rice, meal, food) = taimeshi

This love is as big as what you might feel for hamburgers. To me, taimeshi is rice with minced tai, cooked, sometimes raw. Not rice topped with whole steamed tai, although that is also called taimeshi. Harder to eat!


***
Understandably, some folks go after the young things - taimeshi prepared with an equivalent of spring chicken - sakuradai.

sakura (cherry blossom) + tai = sakuradai
