#2091 | Tales from Tokyo – All the weird things I consumed in Tokyo Convenience Stores

Untitled

To be precise, Tokyo Convenience stores AND vending machines. But the title was getting too long.

Tokyo is so well known for its convenience stores, which are amazing, but it’s my fourth trip to Japan this time round and I still haven’t tried most of the offerings instore because I don’t understand them. So I thought I would start a log of my trip eats from the stores…

Refreshing and zero calories. Tastes just like what it says – jasmine tea, with a slightly flowery aftertaste thats not unpleasant.
Would recommend if you want to try something new but you don’t want to take in additional sugars. I felt very healthy drinking this HAHA.

Really good. Sour and refreshing. Made in Hong Kong tho, dunno if it counts as a Japan eat?

Good stuff because I love eggs. The egg was actually still runny, which was incredible to me! The rice was pretty flavourful too. Would recommend this.

My number one favourite thing to get from convenience stores in Japan. Buy to eat alone or pop in your instant ramen. You can get onsen eggs, japanese ramen eggs, etcetera etcetera.

Just tastes like lemon tea. The best thing about this was the packaging.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS. WORST DRINK IN THE WORLD. I TEARED UP.

Ippudo Instant Ramen! Probably the best instant noodles you will eat in your life. This is a Japan 7-11 exclusive, so you cant get it at Family Mart or Lawsons. Would definitely recommend. They have this in box form which is easier to bring home in your luggage, but TBH this individually packed one is significantly better.

Very underwhelming. Just tastes like sliced cheese. Would recommend buying to pop in your noodle pot when cooking, so the cheese melts over your noodles and you get cheesy ramen. Mmmmmmm…

I really like this milk tea. It’s not too sweet, you can taste the brewed leaves, and it has a weirdly floral aftertaste which isn’t bad.

Alright, that’s it.

I told y’all it be a straightforward post. More to come!

    the kagome vegetable juice you got is veggie concentrated(look out for the chinese words 濃縮) so it taste really really yucky. you needa get the normal non concentrated one, it taste fantastic! can try when you see it at japanese supermarkets again. https://redmart.com/product/kagome-original-vegetable-juice-70675
