※ Memories of Japan May 2010
We traveled to Japan in May 2010, was a culinary adventure to say the least.
Thought I would post a snippet of some memorable things we ate there.
|Supermarket shopping was so fun, the variety of products and packaging|
blows me away.
|Apple yoghurt became a favourite of mine. Wish we had it here.|
Cola Up: Jellied Japanese Soda
Really not what we were expecting J hated it.
From gummy to liquid to jelly, all in one chunky soda.
|Kagoshima beef, which comes from Japanese Black Cattle, |
is famous among meat connoisseurs for being tender,
well-balanced, and of superior quality.
I know they are American, but have never tried them.
They were great!
Milk Chocolate Macadamia
|It’s two soft yet crunchy sesame cookie “buns” covering a smooth, |
buttery-textured layer of chocolate “patty” with a smidgen
of white confection “cheese”.
Very clever, very cute, and very tasty if you’re into those ingredients.
|Loved the fake food in restaurant windows.|
|Wish I had tried the Japanese take on KFC! Maybe next time.|
|The BEST Gyoza I have ever had to this day!|
|Strawberry Kit Kat, why cant we have these here?|
I was tempted to try the wasabi one but didn't manage to get around to it.
|Giant garlic bread in an American style restaurant we went to.|
|Pepsi Nex is only available in Japan.|
I loved the packaging and the small portion size.
It is very similar to diet Pepsi but with a medium
hint of lime and/or ginseng maybe?
|J thought he was ordering a pizza and what came out was a crack sized pizza|
was hilarious! We then realized we were ordering from a tapas style menu.
|A temporary lapse of sanity I ordered seared chicken not thinking that |
it meant pretty much raw. I should have know better.
|The most heavenly macaroons, so delicious and perfect!|
|The strawberry were just as good as the chocolate!|
|Wish we had this burger place here! |
Lotteria burger was so good we ate there twice.
They had a melon flavored soda that tasted like honeydew.
