Food Fucha Ryōri 普茶料理

Fucha Ryōri (普茶料理) is vegetarian cuisine imported to Japan from China in the early Edo period. It is characterized by a rich taste that uses a lot of kudzu (葛, Pueraria montana var. lobata or East Asian arrowroot) and vegetable oil. Each person shares the food on a large plate around the table. Sesame tofu is a typical Fucha dish.
