having two weeks spent at Kansai, how could I not go to Kobe?! to have Kobe beef of course. but no matter where you have it, it seemed like these beer-fed (rumoured) cows are just expensive everywhere. we searched the web for a cheaper and popular place and ended up in a Korean restaurant which serves Kobe beef hahahaha. my Japanese friend didn’t know it was Korean. I was just.. speechless since I live in Korea hahaha.

this is so Korean. hahaha. but I didn’t bother wrapping such good quality meat in vege. >_>”. it’s almost like using money to light up fire instead of wood. if you get what I mean.

IMG_4934 copy

and the 3 types of other meat.

Japanese Beef’s so good. but I won’t lie, KOREAN BEEF’S AS GOOD! >=3.

KOBE BEEF TONGUE! simply my favourite. I won’t like. my favourite part of a cow’s the tongue but Kobe Beef’s just perfect almost everywhere T_T.

apparently a really rare flavour of ice cream, some black tea called the hojicha. wonderful flavour. I really liked it. it’s literally as good as green tea.

and some goodies I grabbed at Tokyu Hands while they had a sale on all the famous edibles all around Japan.

strawberry chocolate from Hokkaido! the packaging’s so cute I still have it until today. I’m a huge rubbish collector. teehee.

CIMG4643 copy

so cute!!! no?

CIMG4645 copy

it isn’t the most delicious thing on urf but it was really good!!!

CIMG4637 copy

according to my friend the best snack from Hokkaido.

CIMG4641 copy

it has rum in its filling and the biscuits really good. it’s a wonder how all the biscuits made with milk from Hokkaido tastes so different and milky while melting in your mouth. ah. bliss.

that’s all for my Kobe post! planning to go to some mountain to see sheeeeeeeeeps this trip! (summer!) =D. wait for it!
