Food In Japan

IMG_0405.JPGAfter finding out that the Tsukiji fish market was closed and that it closed some Wednesdays, a friend and I decided to visit Tsurutontan restaurant. I thought I’d be daring and try out an unusual appetizer. It wasn’t too bad but I didn’t love it. The item on the right are frog legs I believe.. and they’re quite raw!

IMG_0407.JPGThe ramen were amazing! Definitely different that what I’ve had before. The broth is thicker.

IMG_0392.JPGI bought a sushi at one of the food department stores and I thought it was cool how they packaged it. They placed a cool gel packet to keep the sushi chill

IMG_0804.JPGI had to try the McDonald’s to see what’s up here LOL You can get corn instead of fries. Oh and I wanted the Hello Kitty toy which I couldn’t

IMG_0847.JPGTried out Osaka’s famous type of cooking; Kushikatsu. Lightly fried foods on skewer sticks. I ordered a 10 skewer meal and they cooked it one piece at a time 🙂 The sauces were tasteful. I thought the mechanic used to squeeze out the lemon juice was pretty cool

IMG_0863.JPGYuzu ice-cream. Super refreshing!

IMG_0886-0.JPGFinally tried some sushi! First time trying sea urchin and it wasn’t too bad. The yellow item is herring roe and it wasn’t a favourite =S interesting texture though. My favourite was the tuna! Omg, delicious. It was fatty tuna and I’ve never tried it before. It just melts in your mouth. I also tried Abalone for the first time and it was quite crunchy. Overall, I enjoyed the platter because I tried some new things and it offered different textures.
