JAPAN EATS

3 years ago / travel / food / japan

All the yummy noms we had in Japan!

Hello!

Yet more pictures from Japan… I think another 3 more posts then I will be done with the backlog!

A part of me was wondering if I should stop the Japan posts since it’s been sooo long but the thing is, the pictures from Japan are truly the most beautiful (perks of having a pro photographer with us hehe) and I had saved the best topics for the last so I’m very reluctant to give them up.

Today’s entry is the hardest for me to type cause it’s all about the yummy eats we had in Japan! Sorting the pictures for this blog post almost made me cry. We just came back from a foodie trip to Malaysia and can’t wait for our next one to Bangkok - all the mango sticky rice, Four Seasons duck and wanton mee I wanna have!

So anyway, let the food galore begin!

Super duper yummy banana crepes we had at the same cafe. I want more :(

Speaking about crepes, there was this crepe shop that we passed by on the first day that looked sooooo good but we didn’t manage to stop and I told myself “it’s ok, we’ll come back another time this trip” but we didn’t manage to find the time :’(

Lesson learnt: Never leave things to next time when on holiday!

I was eating so much desserts everyday… Love how the Japanese do their desserts, they usually aren’t overly sweet so I don’t get the sick feeling after two mouthfuls.

Ice cream vending machine - I was looking out for this machine everyday!

Even their pet food also looks so yummy lor.

I know I used the word yummy like 5 million times in this entry hahahaha, sorry for the lack of vocabulary. This is why I can’t be a food blogger - food to me is only either a) yummy (worth blogging) or b) not nice (don’t blog).
