[HELP!] What food is this? "Nasu Ivura Itame"


#1

Hi peoples.

I’m googling images of food in this menu but I cannot find this “Nasu Ivura Itame”.

I understand that Nasu means Eggplant while Itame means stir fry. How about Ivura? Is that even a Japanese word? :sweat_smile:

I would really appreciate if you can show me how it looks like. Thank you. :tangerine:

I showed this to a native speaker and he didn’t know what it was. His best guess is fried eggplants?

UPDATE:
Smoked and fried eggplants??? @orenchkanji

Well, it seems that in the Karanga dialect of Shona, the language of the Bantu people native to Zimbabwe, it means water.


#4

Damn this restaurant trying to be fancy with their food names.

So maybe I can just say that it’s something like a stir fried eggplant. hmmm


#5

lols what!


#6

I too use WaniKani to learn Shona - the language of the Bantu people, native to Zimbabwe. Unozviita sei


#7

Nasu tomodachi? :sweat_smile:

EDIT: Srsly tho. I think smoked and fried eggplant is the closest. hmm

You have no mercy. I’m in the middle of chores trying to help you. :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

Salamat po!


#10

De nada po.

It feels like it could be a typo
(As in “nasu ikura itame”)

If there’s ikura in it, that’s what it was :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

That’s what I thought at first, but I don’t see how you’d make that typo


#13

I’ve done way worse while doing reviews on WK.
Looking at the text, I was like “those keys aren’t even close to what I meant to type”.

Edit: Except if you try to type it iCura


#14

What is an Ikura?

Maybe they want to type it as Icura but instead of “C” they pressed “V”.


#15

Ikura is this thing (salmon egg):


#16

Oh we’re thinking the same thing haha


#17

Eggplants with ikura sounds gross, although they are both my favorites when cooked separately :joy:
