HOLIDAYS, Japan, Uncategorized JAPAN: FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD! 1 March 2010

Food in Japan is utterly incredible, if you haven’t already noticed!

It goes back to the simple fact that Japanese do everything better. Their food, regardless of cuisine, is always delightful.. and their desserts are jaw-dropping. The come up with some amazing stuff, and even simple chocolates and candies are lovingly individually wrapped and decorated. I suspect 80% of the delight in food for a Japanese is in the presentation/wrapping 😛

Here’s just a small snapshot of the goodies we ploughed our way through. So much food, so little time! I don’t think we ate a single bad-tasting thing whilst there. It’s surprising and strange how everywhere we went, the food always tasted good. If you’ve been to Japan, I bet you know exactly what I mean 🙂 It’s no wonder it’s a foodie’s paradise!

Giant crispy sweet buns, hot out of the oven
