Japan 2014 in Food (Pic Heavy!)
Remember that holiday I went on earlier this year (Click here to see my holiday to Japan), it seems like forever ago and I almost forgot to post up the food pictures!!!
I'll start off with airplane food, we flew with China Eastern Airline, the service had improved dramatically. The seats were awfully uncomfortable and the food was.... well.. it's plane food. My boyfriend requested for seafood meals prior to boarding, we never knew they catered for people with specific dietary requirements, so that was really good.
These little crepe stalls were all over Tokyo. We ended up having the crepes more than ramen! They looked delicious, they were cheap and filling. Oh, and they put the crepe biz in Sydney to SHAME!!! I got a chocolate banana ice cream crepe a while ago in Sydney and there were 2 tiny slices of banana, half a spoon of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate and cream, I couldn't even see the ingredients. Hence amazed that the crepes in Tokyo actually looked like their display!
Strawberry Chocolate Icecream Crepe
Creme Brulee Crepe!
Chocolate and Strawberry Crepe
There was a Mister Donut next to where we were staying. We came home hungry one night and decided to pop next door to have a snack. Not a lot of variety left at that point in time, it would've been about 10PM.
We had the most authentic Soba noodles in Japan!!!
The Soba was cooked in the spring water coming down from Mount Fuji. I can eat this everyday.... oh with a side of vegetable and seafood tempura.
We had dinner at the place below, amazingly fresh and authentic sashimi !! ^_^
|Warm Sake - SO GOOD!|
|Grilled Octopus with Kewpie Mayo|
|Grilled fish with rasdish|
My aunty's parents invited us out for dinner. We thought "Oh yehhhh!! More authentic Japanese food!!!" to our ardent surprise, they booked a table at a well known Italian Restaurant in their area.
The food was quite nice, comparable to the Italian food here in Sydney. Lots of olive oil and very creamy! The cakes were delicious :)
Cheese Baked Rice - Apparently quite popular in Japan!
Home made tuna, cheese, lettuce and mayo sandwich!
Tonkotsu Ramen!!! It was delicious. After I had this, I decided to cut ties from a few Sydney Ramen chains.
There's a lot of hype over Mos Burger in Australia (In fact, there's one in Brisbane), a burger chain originated from Japan. The portion was a real downer..... it looked like a kid's burger. The flavour was not too bad, but I would much prefer a good ole' burger from Grill'd!
Amazake, a traditional Japanese drink - non alcoholic- made from fermented rice.
Here we have some disgusting, cheap and distasteful bentos from Robot Restaurant.
And... we have some home made dinners below made by my Uncle ^_^
Are you a fan of Japanese food? What's your favourite?
