After 1800s when I adopted Western culture positively, the Japanese meal-style greatly caught the Western influence. The times when meat comes to be eaten freely, and a lot of new ingredients such as foreign vegetables are imported, and the Japanese took in Western food culture spiritedly.
It was spend a lots time to penetrate Western food in Japan,
western food in meal-style mainly on the rice was evolved,
and then the dish of compromise between East and West was born.
Finally dishes were popular among the common people.
