Nagoya is typically known for its powerhouse industrial economy (one of the strongest in Japan) but is often overlooked as a destination in itself. To fuel the hardworking people of Nagoya, the unique cuisine of Aichi Prefecture is often referred to as Nagoya meshi. One delicious defining feature of Nagoya food is that Nagoyans will put miso in just about anything! In particular, Nagoya food is always jazzed up with a delicious, dense dollop of red miso, a distinct Japanese flavoring from fermented soybeans that’s very savory but tasty!
The process of making red miso takes between 2 and 3 years, in comparison to white miso which only takes about 6 months. Akamiso or red miso is deep red or brown in color, and is generally stronger and richer in flavor than white miso. You’ll find it in all kinds of Nagoya food, from miso nikomi udon (udon noodles flavored with miso and a sardine broth) to hearty miso nabe (hot pots).
