Hi everyone! How are you doing today? 😉
First of all, I want to say that my boy friend came up with this title, and not me. He likes to be silly sometimes 😉
FINALLY, this is the LAST POST ABOUT THIS TRIP. (I have so much more other stuff that I want to post, but I know I should finish this first) So foodie post, here it goes!!! 😀
1.) Vegan Airplane food is disgusting.
Ew, what is this fake curry thing… I only ate the left and the right side (not the white rice – yuck!!!)
Breakfast…The puffy cake-like thing on the right tasted like NOTHING. I seriously had NO IDEA what it was.
Breakfast in Japan was vegetable/fruit juice such as this.
Konjac noodles. I love these and they were my lifesavers.
Soba noodles with original soy sauce + vinegar dip. Can taste the soy sauce A LOT, and I thought it was funny 😀
I found it in a grocery store. Hershey’s crunch ball. Probably like dibs…yum for people who eat them! 😉
Cherry Blossom Sherbert. Mmmmm it tasted pink! 😀
Yeay more konjac! (the green sashimi-looking thing) It’s good, in my opinion. With a little mustard-like sauce…Mmm!
A Vanilla bagel I got at the big mall down town. (yes, it’s vegan! Yeaaaaaaaaaay!!!) It was very vanilla-y. 😉 I bought it again a few days after. 🙂 It was that good (and when you can’t find good vegan food like the US, anything would help)
And remember how there was a drink store called Vegetaria?
They used fresh vegetables and fruits to make their drink right on the spot.
Because my mom and I are such unique people, we got bitter melon + pineapple and dragon fruit juice.
Mom’s choice of bitter melon + pineapple. It was SUPER BITTER. I liked that expression on her face, because I knew it was bitter!!! (and I tried it and it was…weird!)
My dragon fruit drink. It was very unique, sweet, and good. It tasted like a mango-type tropical awesomeness. 😀
Food from the US I brought with me. I’m surprised that it actually held me for 21 days. Next time, I taking these in boxes!!!!!!!!!! That’s how much vegan food I need in Japan!!!!!
Kabosu juice. Kabosu is a fruit that’s similar to a lime. Famous fruit in Oita.
More soba noodle. This time warm. 🙂
Shitake mushrooms. This was when we celebrated our grandmother’s 77th year. (not birthday, but a special day because her age is 77)
Fried tofu. Always a yum. Even in America. 😉
Ha ha ha ha ha ha. If you can read this, it’s funny, right? 😉 It has the kanji for “man” (otoko), right on the surface of the tofu. Pretty funny, huh? 😉 And it’s called Otokomae-tofu. (aka “Handsome tofu”) The name gives me a good laugh, too. 😄
Brown Sugar popcorn. This was good, I have to tell you. Even my grandma liked it! 😉 (and it’s vegan! Ha!)
The last “snack” I ate. Apple Sherbert from Baskin Robins. (at The Mall) This was very yum, and it tasted like apples! (Probably chemical apples, but what the heck. I’m regained my health back when I got back home, so it’s all okay) 😉
Food going back. They did a little better, but the steamed veggies didn’t really taste like anything.
Again, breakfast; weird spongy-cake thing. I didn’t even eat this because I knew how nasty it was from the going-to Japan flight. Ew. Absolutely ew.
But but, the funniest food bought during this whole trip is this!
Boobie chocolate!!!!!!!! Our grandma bought it for my girl cousin (age 6) because…it was cute! (I don’t know!) On the front, it actually said how to eat it. “Lick it, suck it, etc. etc.”. It was so funny, I couldn’t stop laughing inside my head!!!! What do you think of this “Boobie Chocolate”? (ooh, and don’t worry. There was also “Penis chocolate”, too. But boobies are totally better than penis, right? Ha ha!!) 😀
I have sooooooooooooooooooo many more pictures, but if I were to finish this post in one day, this is all I can put up. And if I tried to put all the pics, I’d never finish these posts about the trip!!!
And guess what? I totally missed my One-Year Blogaversary!!!! (9/1/2009 was when I started) Oh well 🙂
And two, before I left for Japan, Michael and I went to an all-vegan cafe, so I’m going to have that post coming up next!
To give you a clue what we had, I’ll leave you with this picture.
And now, you get to wonder what it is until my next post! Muhahahahahahaha!!
Well everyone, this is the end of my Japan Trip Recap, and like always, thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks for coming!! 🙂
