Japanese Sauces

The Japanese use a variety of savoury sauces to pep up their food. Several are inspired by Worcester sauce, which was brought to Japan and adapted. As well as the thin, spicy Worcester sauce, there is a thicker, milder and sweeter tonkatsu sauce, often used with the deep fried pork cutlet dish of the same name. In addition, there is a sauce formulated specifically for serving with o-konomiyaki (savoury pancakes), and a chuno sauce that blends both mild and spicy flavours.
