Chanko-nabe. Fuel for sumo wrestlers.
RECOMMENDED
11.27.2015

Chanko-nabe. Fuel for sumo wrestlers.

Japan's mammoth sumo wrestlers need tons of nutrition and energy to bulk up and battle each other in the ring. In accordance with tradition, they live and train in sumo-beya (stables) where they push themselves to the limit and eat to their hearts ' content. All of the dishes they cook are called chanko, and the most popular dish is protein-rich chanko-nabe (one-pot dish), which is eaten in vast quantities with rice. The recipe varies, but contains dashi or broth and is packed with various meats, seafood, tofu and vegetables. You can try chanko-nabe at restaurants, and we especially recommend those run by retired sumo wrestlers.
