Forever Hungry: Eashion Takeout

Today we are going to examine some department store takeout. Prepared meals are readily available everywhere in Tokyo, which is great when you don’t feel like cookin’ on a hot summer day.

Forever Hungry: Fried Rice, Gyoza, and Mapo Tofu Tips from a Pro

It should come as no surprise that there exists Japanese shows that revolve entirely around doing things the Correct Way.

We went to Akihabara one weekend searching for a place to get a 3DS capture card, but unfortunately missed its open hours. So we instead wandered around when a store called Chabara caught my eye. It is right near the AKB48 and Gundam cafés (and no, I do not plan on going to either of… Read more »

Forever Hungry: New Touch Sano Ramen

Forever Hungry: Takara Shikuwasa Highball

That’s right: we’re venturing into booze territory. Our first stop is this Takara shikuwasa-flavored Shochu Highball. I mostly got it because I love shikuwasa, a tart lemon-lime sort of deal mostly found in Okinawa. This particular canned shochu is limited to the Tokyo area for the spring season (you can see the full lineup on… Read more »

Forever Hungry: Meiji Macademia Dark

Testing out my new lightbox* with some snacks! Roy randomly got me these Meiji Macademia Dark chocolates one day after work. I love Meijii chocolates, which is good because they practically have a monopoly on the cheap chocolate market in Japan. Meiji chocolates usually have some kind of cool packaging with little details I love… Read more »
