An old shoyu-flavored dish loved by the masses.
Sabanonitsuke is usually flavored with miso in the Kanto area, but it is cooked in a shoyu-flavored sauce in Osaka. Since Osaka had an easier distribution channel to get fresh saba from the production area, Fukui Prefecture through Kyoto Prefecture, shoyu was more suitable to season saba than miso which had a sweeter flavor. Sabanonitsuke is very tender and easily cut with chopsticks, fluffy and crumbled once in a mouth, and the tasty dashi flavor spreads out. This is a popular dish for booze and dinner at home.
