Why Does a Miso Soup Bowl come with a lid?
In Japan more than 400 years ago miso soup bowls were served with a lids as the kitchens making the meal were miles away from the dining area. Lid were introduced to keep the soup warm and dust out. Many years later as kitchens were built closer to dining areas, miso continued to be served in bowls with lids but only on special occasion. So when eating at home or work, miso was served without a lid but when you have guests or eating at a high profile restaurant, it’s likely that you were served miso in a soup with a lid. Now that meals are prepared in restaurants or at home, the kitchen is seconds away from the dining area so there is no real need to include other than for aesthetic purposes.
