It goes well on fries, too!

Japanese Mayo

The secret? The type of mayo! It’s a unique Japanese Mayo made with only yolks, rice vinegar and a particular umami enhancer called sodium glutamate (MSG). It may sound like the last ingredient is full-on chemicals, but this little white powder is why Chinese food is so good. Sodium glutamate naturally occurs in tomatoes and cheeses, so consider it a ‘special salt.’ It does, just like salt (sodium chloride), have the effect of making you thirsty. The most popular Japanese mayo is called Kewpie (non-affiliated); you can easily find it online. It’s also known as sushi mayo. The bottle has this fun double end, so you can make it come out in thin or thick lines.
