Mitsuba (Cryptotaenia japonica, 三つ葉) is sometimes called Japanese wild parsley, stone parsley, honeywort san ip, and san y qin. The name mitsuba means “three leaves” in Japanese. Like parsley, the flavor is clean and refreshing with a slightly bitter taste with some describe as celery-like. In Japan it is commonly used as a garnish in soups or on top of main meal.
Usually mitsuba stalks are in a small package (see above) and sold in Japanese grocery stores.
