Japanese Almighty Sauce “Kewpie Mayonnaise”


kewpie mayonnaise


What is your favorite food?

I have many favorite foods but today, I want to talk about mayonnaise, which is rather a condiment though.

My friends from other countries often tell me “Japanese mayonnaise is good!”

I love it so much that I put it on all kinds of food; salad, croquette, and even on rice LOL.



In Japan, the people who put mayonnaise on anything are called “mayolars.” And to me, it is like a “miracle sauce” which matches any food.

There are many kinds of mayonnaise sold in Japan.


This is the original.

This has wasabi (Japanese horseradish). The green condiment served with sushi and sashimi along with soy sauce.

Yes, “wasabi” from “wasabi stories” in this blog LOL.


I asked my friends who like Japanese mayonnaise “what is so special about it?” and they said,


“It has deep flavor and tasty, different from the one sold in my country.”

“It is in a tube and it comes out beautifully.”


The shape of the nozzle is surely unique and it comes out like this.
