So I mentioned in Monday's post that I was home this weekend for serious zongzi production...well, there was also time to take a trip to Mitsuwa for their Umaimono Food Fair! I love their food fairs, they usually bring in different vendors from Japan and you can pick up some really neat things. Of course, the chirashi don above is just a regular one from the actual supermarket section...but it was really yummy and hit the spot!
And to go with that, we got a box of takoyaki as well. They had a stand set up and were making them on the spot, and all of the guys were really goofy and seemed like they were having a great time. I tried and failed to get a picture of them shaping the takoyaki--boy do they move fast!
I know this picture is a little messy looking, but that's because we didn't eat them until we got home, and they had gotten a little banged up in transit. Delicious, though!
And for dessert? (Restaurant dessert, to be precise.) Why, this mysterious box bearing the name of Hiroyuki Sakai...(that's Iron Chef French, my favorite!)
Containing this gorgeously wrapped green tea roll cake...
With a surprise core of pudding (yes, pudding!)! Exciting, no? I think this is totally cool! And it was quite tasty. I think I will try to replicate this should I ever summon the courage to try making a roll cake....
Alright, that's enough babbling from me, happy Wednesday!
