Last weekend - Will, our friends, and I went to the Kyushu & Okinawa Fair that took place in Mitsuwa. The fair took place last Thursday, July 25th-Sunday, July 28th. We went on Saturday, July 27th and got to Mitsuwa just minutes before it hit 11AM.
Since we arrived early I didn't have to wait too long for the special ramen and Will managed to find enough seats for 6-8 people.
|Hakata Nagahama Ramen|
The Hakata Nagahama Ramen had a garlicky aroma to it which I loved. The ingredients were typical ingredients you would find in almost every bowl of ramen - tree mushroom, cha-siu, scallions, bamboo shoots, and half-boiled egg.
Oh, I can't forget this. I thought this was the most adorable addition to a bowl of ramen ever. "Thank You" in different language on a piece of seaweed. It's a great tool and neat way of showing someone your appreciation to them. I didn't eat the seaweed because I thought it was just too cute!
|Mango Ice Cream|
|Purple Yam Ice Cream|
At first, I wasn't sure if it would even tasted good, but after seeing my friends nodding their heads while eating the Purple Yam Ice Cream, then it must be good and it was damn good! I really liked it. It's interesting and tasted like real yam. I liked that it wasn't overly sweet.
The quality and variety of the food at the Kyushu & Okinawa Fair was definitely better than the Japanese Gourmet Fair we went to in June. I felt that this time around there were a lot more sweets than savory foods, but that's okay. We all enjoyed the food.
