mini food

New addiction: Mini Food!
Of courses that’s nothing new but nowadays you can find Do-It-Yourself sets in some japanese supermarkets.
My first try was the Mini Burger. You need a little bit of patience, calm hands and a microwave and… Tataaa: Cheeseburger with French-fries and Coke.
The irritating thing is, it really tastes like a cheeseburger o.O
And the bad side effect is all the trash you are creating with one package – that is a good reason to stop this hobby immediately!

pancakes! and cream!

Did it! Since 2,5 years now, I’m going by Eggs’n & Things close to Harajuku, famous for their pancakes. Usually the waiting queue is about 300m long, so I never even thought about getting some!
But by surprise this Saturday, valentines day, I walked by with some friends visiting from China and there was NO queue at all! So I had real Hawaiian pancakes this weekend for the for the first time.
Oishii –  yummy! But be aware about the huge amount of cream o.O –  I have to workout the whole week I guess…

Geschafft! Seit 2,5 Jahre komme ich immer wieder am Eggs’n & Things, in der Nähe von Harajuku vorbei. Der Laden ist  berühmt für Pancakes und normalerweise ist die Warteschlange mindestens 300m lang. Darum hab ich nie daran gedacht hier jemals zu essen!

Aber diesem Samstag, am Valentinstag (!) war es überraschenderweise anders!  Keine Schlange, keine Wartezeit?! Also gab’s Hawaiianische Pancakes am Samstag!
Oishii – Lecker! Aber bitte auf den Berg Sahne achten – das heisst: Sport, Sport, Sport!

omotesando: more than shopping

One of my favourite places in Tokyo is (still) Omotesando. Reason for that is NOT the long shopping mile with all the fancy big labels, but the small side roads. For example the narrow alley from Shibuya to Harajuku, or as well on opposite side. Here you will find second hand stores, small labels, Cafés and Bars to sit outside. Easy to spend a day! Every time I go there, I find a new place and add a new star on my Map 🙂

Especially since January the outdoor event / beer garden area re-opened! This year it’s called commune246 and its a collection of small bars, trailers, a stage and several snack bars. To avoid frosty fingers you can sit beneath the heater during wintertime or enjoy the Tokyo heat during summer time while drinking all sort of cocktails or beers! And if you live here in Tokyo you know how rare it is to have such outdoor places. In this year you can even have a sleep over in a caravan, if you had too many drinks 🙂
Further Tips for those who do not won’t to stick to the standard Omotesando course:

funny food

Zu Beginn habe ich ja immer mal wieder auch Essensbilder geteilt! Zeit wird’s mal wieder für eine Serie “lustiges Essen” in Japan!

At the beginning of my stay in Japan I shared a lot of food pics. Over the last weeks I could again collect a number of funny food & meals which I only saw in Japan. sometimes I still wonder who comes up with this ideas…

legga, legga, legga

einmal richtig tourist sein

asakusa.
klar es ist ein bisschen touristisch und es gibt jede menge krimskrams. aber hier steht immerhin der älteste, buddhistische tempel japans und auf dem weg dort hin kann man viel leckere und nicht so leckere dinge probieren. oder sich einfach gleich das samurai-set kaufen. saschas japanisch lehrerin war übrigens der guide für den tag und wir haben fleissig japanisch geübt.
kleiner tip: auf fotos am besten das peace zeichen machen, da freuen sich die japaner immer sehr!
