Sesame Oil

Japanese sesame oil has a beautiful fragrant taste and smell. With sesame oil a little goes a long way so use it sparingly. Try to use a pure sesame oil rather than the cheaper blended varieties to ensure a full sesame taste. Japanese sesame oil is great as a salad dressing or as part of a dip. Sesame oil can also be blended with vegetable oil and used for deep frying things like tempura as many tempura bars do in Japan. We also offer la-yu chilli oil which is nice when added to ramen noodles to add spice and colour to the dish.
