    @BB: LOL, when you live with a Japanese who feed you natto daily like you should drink your milk daily than you would be able to enjoy Natto like me. I even explored some Natto recipes that even Sushi san who trained me to eat Natto said that I am too hardcore as compared to him. haha….Anyway, the variety of natto stuff that I saw that day just amazed me.
