Word for the day: ochazuke.
Also lunch for the day. I'm a weeaboo.

basically is rice with tea poured over it, served with different savory toppings.
What you need:
Japanese style rice
Green tea (though I have discovered that black tea works really well too)
Suggested toppings:
roasted nori strips
strips of okoge; the thin crust of burned rice that forms on the inside of the traditional cast iron pot used to boil rice in Japan.
umeboshi, pickled Japanese plum
tsukemono, Japanese pickles; daikon, turnips, cucumber etc.
