In Japan, entire issues of food magazines and street festivals are devoted to varieties and preparations of rice. For the North American rice fetishist, there’s Torafuku, which offers kamado rice, prepared in a special 500-pound iron pot balanced over an earthenware oven in a special, designated section of the kitchen. Dishes that take advantage of the rice include ochazuke, a light, flavorful soup with toppings like grilled salmon, pickled plum or spicy cod roe ($6-$7).
