I think a lot of times, people seem to have this idea that natto is one of those strange exotic Asian foods that nobody in their right mind would eat.

Well, one, it isn’t that exotic. Natto is just fermented soybeans. And two, honestly, I’ve had more smelly things (like certain cheeses and tofu), so natto is just another ordinary side dish for rice. For more information, here’s a Wiki article.

More silken goodness beneath the jump~!
