Chicken wing croquette

A chicken wing surrounded by mashed potato and bread crumbs


Not sure from which animal. The menu was unclear. Had intestine breath the next day.

Tomato and pork on a stick

Not a particularly catchy name but lovely nonetheless


This is ground up chicken meat on a stick with a soy sauce and sweet rice wine based coating. The ones at the back have cheese on them.

Raw horse

Very deep colour. Lovely.

Raw chicken

Tastes like chicken.

Deep-fried Camembert

Not a Japanese invention but lovingly presented

Raisin butter

Butter with raisins in it. A delicious beer snack.

About this blog

Hello. I'm Gareth. Originally from the UK, I lived in Japan from 2005 until 2008. I moved back to Tokyo at the beginning of 2011 and am now living deep in the western suburbs. One thing I really missed during my time away was the amazing range of foods on offer. I have thus decided to document here some of the more interesting and unusual ones I eat. Enjoy.
