I was recently fortunate enough to try Megumi Natto, a brand of naturally made natto crafted in California by Japan Traditional Foods. I was completely knocked out by the fresh, fragrant flavor. Good natto truly is a culinary delight, and Megumi Natto is truly the real deal.
This natto is also such a wonderful change of pace from the made-in-Japan natto I usually have, which, by the time it reaches my shores, just isn't the same after weeks of cold storage aboard container ships.
And that mass-market natto also contains MSG, whereas Megumi Natto doesn't.
The Megumi website is chock full of scrumptious recipes, including natto soba salad, shown below in all its mouthwatering glory.
