McDonald’s Japan Texas Burger


So, this year McDonald’s in Japan started a new campaign, called “Big America,” with a series of burgers themed after U.S. States. The first one, and the only one I’ve actually tried so far, to be honest, was the Texas burger. How is it? Well, I wouldn’t eat it again, but that’s just because I […]



Well, I had a donburi meal at a restaurant tonight with the temporary roomate I have for orientation and his friends from SH 4. The gyudon I blogged about earlier is a donburi dish, but I’m not sure exactly what kind of donburi dish it was. ^^; It was quite good, and was served with […]

Yoshinoya Beef Bowl


I had gyudon (牛丼, also known as a “beef bowl”) yesterday at Yoshinoya. It was heavenly! For those who don’t know, it’s a bowl of rice served with strips of beef on top of it. Right now Yoshinoya (or at least the branch I went to) is having a “80 yen off” sale. So I […]

Tokyo Second Trip – Day 3


Well, here’s the overdue next installment of my second Tokyo trip entries. おまたせ! Sorry to make you wait. ^^; On the 29th of December, we headed out to do some shopping and sightseeing. Hitting Akihabara early on in the day, we were able to visit some shops that had been closed the last time we […]

Yodobashi Camera


So I took a trip to Yodobashi Camera in Umeda yesterday with my friend Taylor, and we ran into a couple of his other friends, Brett and Kaori, at the Yodoyabashi station. We decided to all go together, and ended up walking to Umeda from Yodoyabashi. The above picture was taken in the video games […]

McChicken in Japan


So, McDonald’s here in the Osaka area recently launched the McChicken on their 100 Yen menu. As I mentioned previously, the sandwiches at McDonald’s actually look decent and not like something hastily squashed together. The McChicken also seems to be extremely popular from what I’ve seen at the McDonald’s here on campus. The on-campus McDonalds […]

Windows 7 and Burger King


According to CNN Burger King is running a Windows 7 promotion in Japan where you can get a 7-patty burger for 777 yen (but only the first 30 to order it each day get that price. Everyone else has to pay double that. Anyone who has seen me eat knows how much this interests me. […]

Melon flavor


It just so happens that one of the things I was looking forward to being able to readily find here in Japan was melon flavored soda. I fell in love with the stuff several years ago when the local Suncoast received 10 cans of Sangaria melon soda. I bought 8 of them, and the never […]

Chocolate bar Engrish


So, I saw this chocolate bar down at the 99 store (everything there is 99 yen before tax), and just had to pick it up because of the wonderful Engrish on it. ;) The wrapper says: There is no accounting for taste, so choose your own. Experiencing deliciousness made me a slave to taste. Whoever […]

McDonalds in Japan


I’ve only been to the on-campus McDonald’s so far, but one thing I’ve noticed is that the food I’ve had there so far has actually looked something like the pictures on the menu, not something hastily slapped together and squished.
