Shiso Maki


at Tanabe

-Malate, Manila-

with WHO Korean staff

Shiso is a leaf.  Popular in Japan as an aromatic, often used as a wrap.  Distinct … minty … ish … flavor.  Of the same genus perilla and similar in appearance to Korean ggaetnip, yet totally different in flavor.

Not my thing.  Like when you accidentally spray perfume into your mouth – that’s what it tastes like.

  1. I would feel ripped off if i ordered maki and all i got in it was a shiso leaf. Hopefully you also had other stuff for dinner.
