It wasn’t until lately that I have discovered my love for Japanese cuisine. For a long time, I despise Japanese food because it made me throw up 15 years ago. I was pregnant then with my first born, and since then, I never tried any Japanese food, sushi particularly.
A blogger friend invited me in one Japanese Izakaya a few months ago. And I honestly fell in love with the place, the staff, and of course, with the food. After that experience, I have come to love maki and ippin yoki; tried a variety of yakitori and donburi; and so love to sip hot noodles.
Now, imagine my great delight when I learned that our favorite supermarket, Rustan’s, is holding a Japanese Food Fair today until May 7! Surely, I won’t be missing any more of Japan’s tasty goodies and even discover more great treats. And I could all have them in the comforts of our small house.
I plan to visit Rustan’s Supermarket’s Japanese Food Fair anytime soon. For one, I would surely hoard some savory snack or those quick, light instant noodles that we all love. My husband works even at night and a good hot cup of Nissin Special Noodles would surely make him all the more energized to finish his structural plans and designs. For my midnight snack (because I can’t help but eat even at the wee hours of the morning; I am five months pregnant), I will opt for something new and try the seafood flavor from Daikoku Kaisen Sio Noodles.
For my grown up boys, those Glico Pocky flavored pretzel sticks would be a great company as they watch their favorite cartoon programs on the television. I would get a few boxes of the Strawberry flavor for my firstborn; some Almond Crunch for my Second Son; and surely my Big Bunso would love the Chocolate and Cookies and Cream flavors. Of course, there would be something for our little 19-month old. Without a doubt, he will love the Choco Banana flavor. He loves his bananas on top of his rice or over his pancake, and sometimes, he craves for banana pancake and banana muffins.
Aside from hot instant noodles, I will whip salad for myself and my mom. I was told by my Ob-Gyne that I need to diet and cut my rice and bread intake. Salad then is perfect. To inject that Japanese flavor into our salad, I find the Kewpie condiments as the best option. From the classic Kewpie Mayonnaise Japanese Style to Ceasar, Kewpie Roasted Sesame, and Sesame Soy Sauce Kewpie Dressings, surely any dish would be extra flavorful.
Who would have thought that you could taste the delicious flavors of Japan at a local grocery? For more premium quality products sourced from all over the world, visit Rustan’s Supermarket.
