"Zoni" is a dish of "mochi" (pounded rice cake) served in a soup. It is eaten most commonly during the New Year's holidays and the dish varies by region. Niigata's zoni is characterized by the abundance of ingredients that often completely covers the mochi at the bottom of the bowl. Pictured: zoni topped with ikura (salmon roe).
