The Art of Japanese Rayu: Origins and Characteristics

The Japanese adaptation of this vibrant sauce was embraced and cherished in Japan, quickly becoming a staple in households and restaurants across the country. 

Known for its rich blend of distinctive flavours, Japanese Rayu is distinguished by its medley of ingredients, such as chilli peppers, sesame oil, garlic, and spices, forming a harmonious symphony of flavours that pay homage to Japanese culinary prowess.
