TOKYO—Mom was tired so my sister and I went out to look for food at the depachika—or basement food hall found in Japanese department stores.
I get so overwhelmed every time I step into these. I don’t know where to look, I don’t know what to buy. I wish I had 10 stomachs.
Going to the depachika is a must when visiting Japan. It is a great source of pasalubong for the whole barangay.
My sister bought 24 boxes of this highly addictive corn snack. A box contains small packets of Japanese flavored popped corn. I can eat five in one go—with ice-cold Coke. They are sooo evil!!
I’ll tell you what I really think is evil though—West Confectionery’s Leaf Pie. I know you’re gonna say we have that here and it’s called palmier—but this is the closest thing you can get to heaven in a bite.
I truly regret having bought just one teeny pack due to my so-called diet, while my sister bought a box for my dad.
(I have to ask Sayoko if she can buy for me.) I want to marry Leaf Pie!! I am down to my last piece and I am SO, SO SAD!!! 🙁
