Back with more randomness for Monday (It’s morsels time!)
Welcome to my Little Tokyo spree! I went this weekend with my parents, and bought a cartload of food. Let the pictures begin!
Of course, I wasn’t about to leave without some Pocky. I firmly believe that the best (and most reasonably priced) “fancy” Pocky resides in Asia, but I grabbed one of these almond chocolate ones anyways. They’re pretty good, but not the best I’ve had. Then I got 2 packs of your standard Pocky. I am currently enjoying the strawberry-flavored one ^.^
Next up is something I consider to be the best salty snack food ever: roasted seaweed! It’s healthy as salty snacks go, and although a lot of people say it’s an acquired taste, I think it’s just plain delicious.
There’s this little mochi shop somewhere in Little Tokyo (the name escapes me right now) that I stop by every time I go there. I picked up cream bread (bread with custard inside), the straight up white rice mochi I use as a warm, pillowy rice substitute, and my usual pink and green mochi (I get these every single time). They’re like the white rice mochi, but a little…I don’t know how to describe it. In Taiwanese I would say kyu-kyu, but I guess soft is the closest word I can find. The only flavoring they have is a little bit of sugar, and they just look so darn cute, probably the most important reason on the list.
There was some other stuff I picked up too, but these were the definite highlights. Hope everyone’s having a good Monday. I, for one, have totally got the rest of my evening planned out. It’s going to go something like this: study, snack on Pocky, study, pass out, study, drool at computer, study, fall into bed.
