Gomadare sauce is a sauce commonly used in Japanese cuisine. "Goma" means sesame in Japanese, and "dare" means sauce, so gomadare literally translates to sesame sauce. It's a versatile condiment that adds a rich nuttiness and depth of flavour to various dishes.

Umami rich

A slightly sweet and creamy sauce, it is made with high quality white sesame paste and authentic dashi broth made with bonito and kombu seaweed, this gives it a strong umami rich flavour. The mirin, rice vinegar and apple give the sauce it's sweetness which helps to round out the flavours and create a balance with the saltiness of the soy sauce.


Gomadare sauce can be used in various ways in Japanese cuisine. It is commonly served as a dipping sauce for shabu shabu (Japanese hot pot), grilled meats, vegetables, tofu or dumplings. It can also be drizzled over salads, noodles, rice dishes, or used as a marinade for meat dishes.
