Oden (おでん) is a Japanese winter dish consisting of several ingredients such as boiled eggs, daikon radish, konnyaku, and processed fish cakes stewed in a light, soy-flavoured dashi broth. Ingredients vary according to region and between each household. Karashi (Japanese mustard) is often used as a condiment.
Oden was originally what is now commonly called misodengaku or simply dengaku; konnyaku or tofu was boiled and one ate them with miso. Later, instead of using miso, ingredients were cooked in dashi and oden became popular. Oden enjoys a great popularity especially during the winter season, as it helps keeping you warm. Often, Oden is being served along with Japanese sake.
Oden is served in different areas throughout Japan and it represents one of the most popular dishes of Tokyo. Many different kinds of oden are sold, with single-ingredient varieties as cheap as 100 yen.
