Been back home for a good 3 weeks and i am already missing the food in japan already!
Day 3 of my Tokyo trip started with amazing Onigiri. These were bought at the convenient store at shinjuku train station, just a walk away from our hotel.
This is my all time favourite..
We had a great deal of things to EAT for that day on our list (Japan is all about food, food and more food for us). 🙂 We decided to wait for the human traffic to reduced before we headed out.. We headed to Harajuku soon after we finished with the mission to shop and most importantly to eat eat eat…
In Harajuku, the all time famous must try were known to be the Marion Crepes. I had the exact same thing back in 2010.. Click here! You can read about it. 🙂
This time around with the kids (knowing that they probably won’t be able to finish one whole crepe) i decided to get them an alternative.
Their faces were simply priceless… endless smiles from the first bite to their last..
As for the crepe.. this is how it looks like.. folded inside with whipped cream, ice cream, syrup, bananas, strawberries, chocolate… its a complete full package of FAT FAT FAT in one package!! *but it was sooo worth it*
We then walked around.. shop a little and soon after headed to eat Ichiran Ramen.
The above without chilli is for the kids. Don’t get me wrong, my kids were not sharing.. My boy finished one whole bowl himself.
The broth is made from pork but weirdly enough.. it didn’t have any porky smell like what we get in Malaysia. (which i can’t stand.. as some of you know, I’m allergic to pork.. but no worries…i had stood by some medication just in case of allergy reaction. YES I’M GOING ALL OUT ON THIS TRIP… ALLERGIC ALSO I EAT!)
The egg was the BESSSSSSTTT…
Once we were finished we headed back to the train station to head back to the hotel to get some rest.. but on the way back we couldn’t resist the smell as we walked past the The Famous Gindako Takoyaki!!!!!!! These were made fresh on the spot.
Soon after, we headed back to the hotel and gotten ready for dinner time! 🙂
It was rather random but we simply walked into one building searching for good Yakiniku..
we had.. mushrooms.
this was their famous… but i didn’t really fancy it.. it’s beef mixed with a variety of vegetables.. however the beef seems to be so chewy (because its filled with fats.. some would call it collagen). After two pieces, i surrender and gave the rest to the husband to finish while i had the vegetables instead.
For the kids, we ordered scallop porridge. Tasted pretty good!
grilling these babies required some skills..another plate of beef…because it was that good!
This plate of beef was seasoned. I personally prefer the first plate of beef that we ordered.
And thats it for our food adventure for day 3.
