Thankful Thursday - Bonito Flakes

It's unusual that I thank something I found at a restaurant, but today, I present the tiny, waving flakes on top of hot rice dishes.  They're also commonly used in dashi, or Japanese stock.  These little bursts of flavor and nutrition are none other than bonito flakes, scraped off a dried fish.  As I haven't cooked with this ingredient before (but will be doing so once I get my hands on some, believe me), I am showing them on a dish from Han's Deli, an inexpensive restaurant in the shopping district of Songdo.

Alright, so my meal was downright cheap, and I took half home.  But it was delicious!
Reviews of our favorite Songdo restaurants to come soon, I promise!
