hermes

IMG_9006 When you see the word "Hermes" what do you think of?

Well, in Osaka, Hermes is the brand name of a sauce. Apparently the name is based on the Greek God, Hermes.

Since 1935, they have been making worcestershire, tonkatsu (pork cutlet) sauce, as well as sauces for yakisoba (fried noodles) and kushikatsu (fried items on a stick).

I like the tang of this sauce, a little sweet, a little spicy.

Osaka has many brands of sauces, hope to try more in the future.

Hey Kat - Everytime I see Hermes on something it makes me laugh. I had a friend who sometimes would kind of scramble words around. One day she said she wanted a scarf from Her?es. Change the "?" to a 'p'..... We couldn't stop laughing.
