Senbei: Japanese rice cracker

They sell senbei, Japanese rice cracker. They are usually savory but sometimes sweet and people eat them as afternoon snack.

They are usually cooked by being baked or grilled after they are flavored with shoyu and mirin. Some of them are wrapped with a layer of nori.

Thank you for your comments!

ben: Oh, nice!! What kind of senbei do you like? I like the salt flavor. This shop, as you know, sells senbei in a traditional way and in Yanaka, one of small and traditonal shopping district in Tokyo.
zannnie: Once I eat, I cannot stop it, like you. Is there senbei in Singapore?

Marcky, I prefer soy source based. My wife's family knows I like them and occasionally sending some for us. Kalino-tane in most of case and some Arare that with many kind in one pack. Souka-senbei is one of my favourite too. Any kine except sweet one. Yum!
