This matte black bowl is nontraditional for Suribachi and its purity is considered aesthetically pleasing. A Suribachi and Surikogi may be used interchangeably with a Western mortar and pestle, though its light ridges on the inside make it perfect for pulverizing herbs and small seeds for sauces like pesto or sesame dressing.
This small Suribachi bowl is also the perfect size for serving appetizers, tapas, side dishes and tsukidashi, otoshi.
