Home Dine Out Japan Rainbow Red Kiwi Fruit | New fruit in Japan

 

Ke Ren Lai Restaurant | Gurney, Penang

After 3 years, I am now back to Japan again. This time will stay here for only 3 weeks, it is good for me to enjoy the food here. I miss the food in Japan, from sandwich to bread to cake to dessert to ramen to bento to coffee to izakaya food to sashimi to ... many more. Opsss...this post is not about Japanese food yet. Let's back to my last dinner before I came to Japan.

 

Pokka Aromax Coffee | Japan

Recently, there are new types of coffee from Pokka Company in Japan. It is an aromax series coffee, four types of new aromax coffee namely "Black", "Ice Latte", "Espresso" and "Premium Gold". I have tried all of them and collected the cans of these 4 types coffee.Drinking cute mini can coffee in Japan is enjoyable but this is the first time I collected the cans. The reason is they are special in the sense that this is the first time I saw mini can with cover. Hence I collected 4 of them and wanted to bring them back to Malaysia as one of my collection.I bought all of them from company's vending machine, 90 yen each (about RM3.20). Normal price from outside vending machine is 120 yen each (about RM4.20).

 

Sukiyaki 鋤焼 | Dinner At Japanese Sensei House

When I was working in Japan, I attended Japanese class in order to improve my Japanese language. I have a Japanese teacher who taught me the Japanese language for about a year when I stayed there. Before the training end, I was invited to her house for dinner. I feel glad to have the opportunity to visit her house.

 

181 Open House | Juru Village 柔府新村, Penang

"We Share What We Have.....", this is a slogan of 181 Open House, a coffee house located at Juru, Penang. The coffee house open in July 2012 and operate by a Chinese couple of husband and wife. It was renovated from bungalo type double story old house at Juru Village, and "181" is plat number of their house. Before that, we have passed by the coffee house for many times, but could not get a chance to dine in there. Last weekend, we managed to visit them and had our lunch there.

RainbowKiwi_2Talk about kiwi fruits, the country of origin is China and later on the seeds were brought into New Zealand. In New Zealand, the kiwi fruits were broadly planted and from there they are exported to other countries around the world. Hence New Zealand's kiwi fruits became popular. Recently, a new kind of kiwi fruit is found in Japan.

 

 

It is popular and special as the quantity of this new kiwi is little and hence caused it valuables. The price for this new kind kiwi is more expensive compare to normal green or yellow kiwi. What is the speciality of this new kind kiwi? Well, I think it is due to the colour of the kiwi, it has mixture of red and green/yellow in colour, and this is where the name came from --> RAINBOW KIWI. The center of the rainbow kiwi is RED and surrounded by either green or yellow.

Other than the colour, the size of rainbow kiwi is smaller compare to normal kiwi. It is sweet and not sour. The surface of the kiwi does not have hair.

Last two days, we bought a pack of rainbow kiwi, total 6 of them. It costs 398yen, which is equivalent to RM14. A piece of rainbow kiwi cost about RM2.40, this price is also equivalent to a bowl of asam laksa, hehe...

Talking about buying process, at the time we reached the shop, we saw the last pack of rainbow kiwi, immediately we bought it. Before that, we went to few other shops and non of them selling this kind of fruit.

After dinner, we ate the RAINBOW kiwi, with excited and joyful heart. When we cut into half, I feel cheated by the shop owner, the kiwi was rotten!!! Out of 6, one was rotten, one bowl of asam laksa gone! The other 5 were just fine, taste not sour but not really special. To me, I still prefer yellow kiwi, because it is sweet.

It might due to the rainbow kiwi is not very fresh and hence caused the taste weird or in fact the taste is just normal. Well, I believe this is the first and also last time for me to buy. Also, the red colour in middle is not as beautiful as the advertisement picture. Kind of dissapointed. Anyway, I feel happy as I have the chance to try new kind of kiwi fruit in Japan, the RAINBOW KIWI.
