Those are most commonly called 「[屋台村]{やたいむら}」, followed probably by 「[屋台街]{やたいがい}」, but I recommend that you stick with the former because the latter can also refer to a regular street lined with food stalls. There is one named 「かごっまふるさと屋台村」 in Kagoshima if that is the one you got drunk at last night. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keCZt91Xj1g The word ...


おてもと does refer to chopsticks but it is not "another word for chopsticks." That is, you won't say おてもとを取ってください nor 新しいおてもとを買ってこようかな. According to the source article that Chocolate's Wikipedia article mentions, the word came from a reference to "お手もと箸" (chopsticks for your personal use) in contrast to "お取り箸", which refers to chopsticks for shared dishes that ...


コーヒー割り “split / divided coffee” No, it is コーヒー modifying 割り, not the other way around. Japanese is left-branching in an almost completely consistent way. Keeping that meaning of 割る, it would be “split / divided by/with coffee”. As others have explained, 割る here means dilute, by which you reach the expected meaning.


I didn't know of 泡盛 until I looked it up just now in Wikipedia but I think 〜割り is often used when you dilute a drink (probably alcoholic like 泡盛)with something else. The one I am most familiar with is ウイスキー水割り, which is whiskey diluted with iced water, often ordered by salary-men in hostess/entertainment clubs/old-fashioned Karaoke bars. In your case it ...


「[割]{わ}る」 here means "to dilute". See meaning #II-4 in http://kotobank.jp/jeword/%E5%89%B2%E3%82%8B?dic=pje3&oid=SPJE04759100 「[泡盛]{あわもり}のコーヒー割り」 = "awamori diluted with coffee" Other common terms containing 「割り」: ウイスキーのソーダ割り/[水]{みず}割り [焼酎]{しょうちゅう}のウーロン[茶]{ちゃ}割り


For what it's worth, I know of psyllium husk powder both in English and in Japanese. I've seen it as サイリウムパウダー サイリウムハスクパウダー サイリウムシードパウダー オオバコの粉末 (サイリウム) in the context of raw food diet recipes (as binding agent). Recipes often just write something like 「サイリウム (オオバコ) 5g」 though, even if the recipe definitely calls for powder. (You can find all ...


This is just a helpful guess based on some research (below) but it would be interesting if someone could use this as an example to explain how to come with the expressions such as this, based on potential components. Anyway my final suggestions were: プランタゴ・オバタ種皮の粉末 as per http://kakaku.com/item/K0000571718/ or プランタゴ・オバタ種皮末 as per ...


Er... Looks like I had the ability to find out but was looking in the wrong spot. Turns out the loan words "husk" and "powder" are normally used. (ハスク)(パウダー) (I'll probably accept this as my accepted answer in 2 days but if anyone finds any alternative writings that would be great.)
