G'Day Japan! / Food and Drink / It’s beer o’ clock with Orion Beer – Tokyo Mart –


Orion Beer: the mild, fresh tasting beer imported directly from Okinawa, Japan! The best way to experience Orion Beer is to match it with exquisite food – it’s praised in restaurants right here in Sydney too. Let’s take a look at what Tokyo Mart likes to match with Orion Beer…


Easy DIY Snacks to match with Orion Beer!


Okinawa’s ‘instant miso soup, full of flavour – Kachuu-yu



Dried Bonito 3g
Miso 1 tbsp
Hot water 150ml
Shallots (optional) To taste


Ingredients you can buy at Tokyo Mart

– Dried Bonito : Shinsen Ichiban Hana Katsuo Hana (Yamaki)
– Miso : Combined miso (Shinshu Ichi Miso)




Put the Dried Bonito and Miso into a bowl with some shallots, then pour in some hot water.

‘Kachuu’ is an Okinawan word for ‘Katsuo (Bonito)’, and Kachuu-yu is an ‘instant’ style miso soup that’s been enjoyed in Okinawa for a long time. Okinawa consumes five times the national average of Dried Bonitos in Japan, so Okinawan miso soup is full of it.

The amino-acids in both the Dried Bonito and Miso paste helps to detoxify your liver so having  bowl of it after drinking could prevent hangovers.

This soup will hydrate you with plenty nutrients too. It’s high in protein and low calorie so it’s also perfect to help achieve weight-loss.

The main ingredients are very simple so you could easily arrange it to make it more colourful and enticing. For example, you could add tofu, wakame seaweed, tororo konbu seaweed, garlic or umeboshi plums instead of just shallots.


Eat the mineral-rich ‘mozuku’ like a snack! Mozuku Tempura



Mozuku seaweed 200g
Carrots (optional) Half a one



Egg 1
Water 100ml

Powdered Japanese Stock (optional) To taste
Oil Appropriate quantity

Ingredients you can buy at Tokyo Mart

– Mozuku seaweed: Miyakojima Shaki Shaki Mozuku (Takagi Kaiso-Ten)

How to store your beer

If you leave your beer out in the heat for too long, the temperature gradually destroys the balance of its taste. This can result in the beer having a slightly oxidized odor and darken the colour or even emphasize the bitterness. To prepare a perfectly enjoyable beer, be sure to store it somewhere cool that will not reach high temperatures.
