This is one of my latest finds during my stay in Roppongi Hills in Tokyo. I can’t read Japanese, but I walked into AM/PM in the wee hours of the morning, looking for a treat. I always love trying new foods/snacks, so I reached for this cute pouch of what appeared to be fruit balls (insert joke here). To my surprise, these tiny balls were packed with fruit flavor! It’s final, they are #2 place, as my #1 place winner still goes to Haagen Daaz Crisp Sandwich (green tea).
Phew, I am so happy to be starting up a new week. Last I had a couple of crazy a** days. I’m pretty laid back 99% of the time, but there are certain things that really irk me. Any who, this weekend was really fun and relaxing!!!
On Saturday, we lucked out and got a chance to try some of the Japanese goodies during the Fall Gourmet Food Fair @ Mitsuwa.
The line for the Okonomiyaki (Osaka Style) was about 10 ppl deep, but that didn’t deter me from waiting. =)
Then we had “waffles” from “Kobe-Fugetsudo. These yummy “waffles” were sooo delicious! You can choose from an assortment of “waffles” filled with custard, matcha red bean paste, and chestnut cream. Jp went with the matcha & azuki bean and I got the chestnut one.
As of late, I seem to be having way more fun on Wednesdays, then I do on weekends. I guess not having a 9 to 5 gig, makes everyday fair game!
I was in SF last week, so didn’t get a chance to venture out, but this week I decided to do something different.
I had my friend over for dinner, I made spaghetti with a side caesar salad and garlic bread. And for dinner, my girlfriend brought over some fabulous desserts from Chantilly Patisserie. Take a look for yourself…
I’m not much a dessert kind of gal, but these mini desserts were delicious! Japanese desserts are usually less sweet and packed with flavor. They always look so dainty and appetizing. =)
After dinner & desserts @ home, we drove over to Katsuya for some drinks. Things were pretty mellow this Wednesday, but it was really fun. Hope to do it again sometime. Thanks for the awesome desserts Young!!!
