Cha Dango 京の茶だんご | Japan

Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko, rice flour. There are many varieties of dango in Japan and normally three to four dango are often served on a skewer. The texture of the dango is very similar to chinese glutinous flour ball (tang yuan), especially the plain dango, not only the texture, the taste is almost close to tang yuan. On this post, I would like to share on the Cha Dango from Kyoto, Japan 京の茶だんご. It is a green tea flavour dango where only sells in Kyoto area. I have never see this brand of dango in Tokyo.

 

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!

香港,澳门,珠海,广州,深圳 六天五夜 行 (第一章)

刚从香港回来, 由于是和父母去的,所以我们选择了跟随旅行团去游玩.再加上香港的旅店实在是不便宜,算来算去还是跟随旅行团较为划算. 我们是在今年的旅游展期间报名的.一个人的旅费是RM2488.除了两餐不包,其余的都包在旅费了.酒店也包在旅费里面. 为了加快的把行程记录下来,这次选择了用华文来写,要不然把时间花在翻译上,恐怕我有限的记忆将会很快消失了. 来吧,开始行程吧. 22/10/2012 7:10 我们乘搭马行从槟城到吉隆坡国际机场.到达时间为8.10.     22/10/2012 9:15之后从吉隆坡搭飞机直达香港.路程用了差不多4个小时.飞机餐是提供Nasi Lemak 及Omelette让你选.味道差不多而已.

Today after work, I went to take dinner with my colleagues. We went to a restaurant nearby company to have the dinner, it is called Coco’s (ココス). After about 20 minutes walk from company, we reached the restaurant and start our dinner.

 

 

I ordered a set of Chicken Steak with Cheese and Tomato Sauce. It is like Chicken Coated Cheese served in Malaysia. The chicken is soft and tasty but I can’t really taste the cheese. Maybe I am a cheese lover and the cheese taste is not strong enough for me? Well, don’t care, as long as the overall was not bad. Generally, I am quite satisfied with the food.

My colleagues ordered Beef Hamburger Steak. The beef was about 50% cook and you can continue to cook it yourself on top of the “mini hot plate”. The way they served the steak was special and that the reason they ordered this set.

I ordered the set which come with bread and free flow of drink. At first I thought it is garlic bread, but it wasn’t. It was a white bread which was toasted before served. It was a bit crunchy and taste not bad after spread with butter.

How about the free flow drink? There are plenty of choices to choose. First, I make a cup of hot cocoa drink. I always look for hot cocoa drink when I am in Japan. Japanese like alcohol so much but I don’t really prefer alcohol, hence hot cocoa is one of the drinks that I can drink. The hot cocoa in ココスis thick and suits my taste, you can feel the smoothness of cocoa drink when you drink it. I just love it!

Calpis

It is now cherry blossoms season in Japan, hence Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) Tea was a “must try” drink when you are in Japan. I personally feel that the taste is light and not much different if compare to normal “flower tea”. Anyhow, one of my colleagues ran to toilet after she drinks that tea. She was complaining stomachache and blames the tea. Haha, that was funny!

My colleague saw some other special tea, so we make another two, Baked Apple Tea and Tropical Mango Tea. Both are not bad. To me, they also taste almost the same as normal flower tea.
