Recently I tried a food called okayu (お粥) in Japanese. Basically, it's a porridge made from rice. Mine had chopped sweet potatoes in it and was served with these toppings. Ultimately, I decided to eat them separately, but they would've made interesting complements to the okayu.
Some of the sides were fairly average, like the fried yuba (top-left) or the seaweed (bottom-center), while others were unusual, like the 1000-year eggs (center-right). Some of it I had no idea what I was eating.
This particular okayu was at a Taiwanese restaurant, although the name was Japanese (お粥).
