Here we go! Hope you’re not hungry!
Coco House Curry is a famous curry rice chain in Japan and I finally got the chance to try their stuff starting with their tonkatsu curry rice. You can choose the spicy level on a scale of 1 to 10. I didn’t think a chain store would be able to do spicy right so right off the bat, I went with a 10… I got what I asked for. It felt like there was a fire in my stomach the whole night afterward ^^;.
Katsu Curry Rice… with cheese. There’s a variety of topping you can choose from such as seafood, veggies, and even intestines.
My first time trying one of the many French Cafe in Japan. Way too fancy and expensive for my taste but worth the splurge ^^; That “bowl” of royal milk tea cost almost 700 yen O_O But it was the best and richest milk tea I ever had. I like how I can understand the menu a lot better in Japanese since I can’t read French xD
Went to Saizeriya for the first time also. I see this chain of Italian-style Japanese restaurant everywhere. They serve pizza, pasta, gratin and other things. Very cheap place to eat. Most items cost under 500 yen!
My first Katsudon outside of school. Fried pork chop with egg over rice. Simple and delicous!
New item at Mickey D’s. The Mega Mac (double beef patty Big Mac) and sour cream and onion dipping sauce for the nuggets.
Another new item. Shaka Shaka American BBQ fries. They give you an extra bag to dump your fries in, then dump the packet of BBQ MSG seasoning, shake it up (shaka shaka) and voila. It’s pretty good but it does not compare to Five Guys’ Cajun fries back in the states though :)
When I was living in the states, you cannot even pay me to eat anything from Domino’s or Pizza Hut; their stuff is just junk and there are so many better local shops that make real and better pizza. That being said, I tried Domino’s here just out of curiosity…
To my amazement, I uttered something that I cannot believe I would utter about Domino’s: “This is some good pizza!”. I also cannot believe this was Domino’s pizza that I was enjoying. It is drastically different than what Domino’s in the states put out. It’s not the best but I would say it was at least an honest-to-goodness real pizza (and yes, I ate one whole pie by myself). Of course… with the higher quality almost comes the higher price; Domino’s is expensive in Japan o_o. These two ~35 cm pizza (Large) with two toppings each come out to ~3800 yen. That’s ~$40 right there! For Domino’s! The menu is also vastly different, catering to the Japanese folks; you can order a pizza with seafood (REAL crab meat!) or Kobe beef as toppings for example. Just ready to pony up to 5000 yen for a pie.
A chocolate cream-filled french bread dipped in chocolate. YES!
Milk tea and baked pudding. Cheap snacks.
Chicken burrito and chicken quesadilla. Mexican food is rare but can be had in Japan too if you look hard enough :D
As usual, crepes are a given :)
There is still much more to eat in Japan!
