Nakau なか卯 | Japanese Style Fast Food | Japan

Are you looking for something cheap in Japan? Of course, the “something” here means FOOD. Well, I think most of the people know that dining in Japan is not cheap, but if you are good in dig hole (korek lubang), you can actually get a cheap meal too. One of the “hole” I found is to walk around “super market” (I used to call those convenient market/mini market/super market hampalang (all) as super market), most of the “super market” selling bento 弁当 (lunch box). When come to certain time, few hours before the food is expired, they will have discount on the bento. Grab one!  

 

Dinner at いろはかるた Izakaya 居酒屋| Kyoto Japan

Izakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop. Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol. I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them.

 

Happy Mooncake Festival from MnYfoodtalk

It has been a while since our last update in MnYfoodtalk, it is mainly due to our webpage was corrupted recently (thanks to the previous lousy web hosting company). All the posts were gone and we had to re-build and re-publish all the posts as we do not have a backup for our posts. During the downtime of our webpage, the poor service from the previous web hosting company was really dissapointed us and make us mad. Hence we had decided to change to new hosting company as they provide a better service to us. The two hosting companies did make a big different in providing services to their customers. For instance, the way they reply our requests did make a big different, you can't imagine how a service company can reply an email to their customers in a rude way and blame that the fault is from customers themselves. In fact we knew that was the improper server configuration that brought us all the nightmare and here we have no intention to blame any party, but the rude and irresponsible way of servicing customer from the previous hosting company had changed our mind in continuing to host under their company. So far, we are pretty happy with current web hosting company. One lesson learnt here, BACKUP YOUR BLOG OFTENLY!

 

Longan Konnyaku Jelly (Crystal Jelly)

Konnyaku jelly is a "QQ" type of jelly. I made this during our house party. This is a favorite dessert that my little niece likes to make. To make this, just follow steps at the pack. First, mix konnyaku powder with sugar. Boil a pot of water, when the water is boiled, slowly pour in konnyaku and sugar mixture, stir the mixture at the same time. Get ready jelly mold and your favorite fruits. When jelly is boiled, pour into jelly mold. Remove jelly fom mold when they are completely cool. Keep in fridge before serve.

BlueberryFarm_13The summer holiday in Japan has started on last Saturday. It is an one week holiday. I am very happy that I have a great time to enjoy and rest on this long long holiday.

Today, I have visited to a blueberry farm to pick blueberry. This is the first time I visited blueberry farm in my life. Full with excitement, I arrived in the farm.

In my mind, blueberry is sour. I don't really like sour fruits and I prefer sweet and nature taste. But out of my expectation, the blueberries are so sweet, juicy and tasty. I really have a shock and wonder, "why are blueberries sweet?" Haha...

To enter the farm, need to pay 300yen. (About RM10)
