If you thought the Americans had cornered the market on super-sized portions then think again. Because the USA has got some competition in the eating stakes and it comes in the unlikely form of Japan. After generations of staying slim on modest portions of rice, noodles and vegetables a newly affluent wave of Japanese society are enjoying a western style boom in big eating.
Known as ‘ohmori’ or ‘large serving’ (大盛り) this departure from traditional meal sizes have become increasingly popular amongst more adventurous Japanese. Some of these dishes are called “mega” (メガ) or even “jumbo” (ジャンボ or “janbo”) in Japanese.
What makes these huge servings even more stomach-busting is that you are expected to clean your plate in Japan. Not finishing your meal can be considered rude! Have fun trying to finish these.
