Sister date at Mitsuwa Market and around....<3

The day we planned our sister date, the weather was horrible so our original plan was ruined. booo...We were going to go for a few categories of best of:

Donut @ Doughnut plant
Falafel @ Taim
Cheese steak @ Wogie's Bar & Grill
Tacos @ Pinche Tagueria
Pastrami Sandwich @ Katz Deli
Pizza @ Grimaldi's
Chicken wings @ BonChon

Not sure how many places we would've gone to but I bet our stomach would've been so full! Maybe next time she comes back we'll try this list again....

Instead of being out in the rain and snow, we went to Mitsuwa Market . It was perfect for that day because it was indoors and the food court has alot of different type of food (Japanese) to choose from...not very N.Y but still great food! We didn't just eat and eat the whole time...we walked around the huge supermarket that sells alot of Japanese products and checked out the few stores they got there, a book store and a stationary store with every from kitchenware to cutesy anime stuff.

Cutesy stuff I found: This device teaches you how to hold a chopstick. It's so cute! I so need one...

A cute lunch box w/ one of my favorite anime, My Neighbor Totoro.
In the food court, walls were surrounded by plastic display of food to help you choose what you want to eat. It showcase all types of Japanese food from rice dishes, ramen noodle, soba noodles, tempura, even desserts and drinks. Alot of the meals comes in sets which include salad, soup and desert. SoOOoO yummi....

I'm hungry growl....seriously I was!
Sushi and packaged meals are in the supermarket area (you don't find any sushi at the food court, only in the supermarket) all the fish are very fresh and they make so many different kinds of sushi.

Check out interesting products from the supermarket:
Weird flavors of KitKat: mcflurry, berry and grape:
Snoopy peanut butter in a squeeze tube

Hello Kitty brownie mix w/ the mold:

Cute kitty and cow mochi. At first, I thought they are flan or jello but you're suppose to peel the bottom of the container and inside has alot of little small mochi in individual package.

These pretty containers are filled with colorful substance which we think are some kind of honey and you're suppose to use the stick to eat it. We were busy taking pics of it people were asking us what they are and we said we had no idea! hahahSo what did we order in the food court and supermarket...
Eel over rice meal w/ salad, miso soup and mandarin orange in light syrup :
Gyoza (Japanese dumplings): the skin was light, not doughy and it had pork and chives in the middle, it was good...

Crab and potato croquette: very creamy inside and the crispy outside, so yummi! (you will find these in the supermarket's hot food section, they also have vegetable ones)

Seaweed chicken wings: these were so good! (you can also find these in the supermarket's hot food section.)For dessert we had:
Taiyaki cake: fish shaped waffle batter cake filled with red bean and the other one is a cute bunny character on the round cake which is filled with egg custard. it's really good when you eat them fresh and goes really good w/ ice cream.

let viv show you how it's done: one bite of cake and then another bite of ice cream, hmmm...

One of the must have at this food court, sesame soft serve ice cream! The taste is very unique! It has a light sesame favor which isn't too overwhelming and plus the creaminess and the sweetness of the ice cream goes really well w/ the favor. I didn't think I would like it but this kick ass!

Surprisingly after eating and shopping at Mitzuwa, the sky was clear and we continued our sister date around New York City.

This was taken right next to the mall, it was so beautiful....

Us holding bags of food and snacks roaming around the city at night:

I'm gonna miss you sis! Good luck in Taiwan <3>

Good news I've officially made my sister Vivian, my Taiwan food correspondent. I will be posting awesome food pics that she takes from Taiwan! woohoo! So far she's been doing a great job of taking pics and making videos of the food market and her reviews of the street food. Once I figure out how to post them you'll see...

One of my goals for this year is to make videos to introduce the places I go to and the food I eat (not just pics and pics of food...boring!). Thanks to my awesome sister in law who started this trend ahhaha...she really has a talent for doing this kind of stuff, I hope TVB or foodnetwork will find her!

Stay tuned....
