October 07, 2010: Bird’s Nest Soup

October 7, 2010

Today’s original soup from Okonomy is “Bird’s Nest” Soup. The look of the  soup vaguely simulates the look of a bird’s nest, in that it has a green tea soba as a noodle for a grassy-like effect. A cooked quail’s egg completes the illusion. Chef Saito uses a chicken broth as a stock for this soup. As added flavor Chef Saito adds a lemon twist. He also adds mitsuba (Japanese parsley) to this soup for an added depth of taste.



  1. Beyond brilliant! Love this.

  2. Tried Bird Nest soup last year from like http://www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm . Tastes really good… yeah, I thought it was gross at first, but wow, you won’t regret it.
