So, I luckily managed to get a (sudden) trip to Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka last August, and here’s a few of yummy food that you gotta try if you go to Japan! 😀
P.S: Pardon me with the inconsistent pictures quality, sometimes I was just to lazy to put out my camera and took picture with my phone instead :p (And more often that not, I just way too hungry and didn’t take picture at all loll)
St. Marc’s Cafè is a dessert chain that quite famous in Japan I must say. You can find it in Harajuku, Tokyo, and they literally have like, four or five stores in Shinsaibashi, Osaka. If you read Kocchimuite, Miiko! I’m pretty sure you already know this hahaha. They are famous for their chococro, that available in various flavours, such as chocolate, matcha, and milk chocolate. They were equally delicious! My family somehow always come to this store whenever we passed them lol. They also sell various dessert, savoury bread, and beverages other than chococro; honey bread, soft cream, waffles, sandwiches, you name it!
If you love green tea, you obviously will have a massive green tea party here in Japan! Every dessert seems like always have a matcha flavour alongside other flavour. I lost my count how much green tea soft cream that I ate during this trip, but in my opinion Kyoto’s matcha taste better than other’s matcha. Also! If you prefer soft serve ice cream rather than gelato style ice cream, you should try every flavour that available here in Kyoto, especially near Kiyomizu-dera. You will find a lot of choices but sadly I didn’t get a chance to taste black sesame soft cream. 😥
I know it’s a lot less Japanese-ey than any other food, but since Orlando or London were too far, so why don’t we get a taste of Butterbeer here in Universal Studio Osaka? If you are growing up with Harry Potter stories, I’m pretty sure you already know about this infamous drink from the magic land. It’s a non-alcoholic beverage that especially served in Hogsmeade. Well, since the Wizarding World opened just like, less than one month before I came here, so it was obviously packed and we have to queue for more than half an hour just to buy this drink.
Final verdict? It was absolutely worth it! A long time ago, I googled Butterbeer recipe because I’m very curious and initially I want to make it at home, but when I saw “soda” on the recipe list, I was backing out because I never like it even a teeny bit. Some people said that Butterbeer taste similar with root beer, but I didn’t taste any soda at all! Maybe because I bought Frozen Butterbeer? I don’t know but it was sooooo good you gotta try it if you have a chance to come here!
