These are some items that remind me of home.
Japan has some bad ass food but there are just some flavors that can’t be replaced.
One is Best Foods Mayo…This is probably a cultural thing.
Another hard one to find in Japan is Hearts of Palm…awesome…
A cross between tasty bamboo sprouts and white asparagus. Mostly from Costa Rica…very far from Tokyo.
A1 steak sauce… How can you not like any steak sauce that can completely overpower any flavoring.
And last but not least …artichoke heart…now this doesn’t do it justice.
Being from LA, artichokes are a way of life…especially with Best Foods mayo!!
But, artichokes in Japan are special order for like $38 from a small farm and so I have to settle for this.
It just gives you so much appreciation for the foods you can get locally.
Thank god for the internet.
