So Konbinis (convenience stores) are great, I’ve alluded to this in previous posts, but you can do so many things there – which I’ll probably talk about in a later post. Today though, konbini food, specifically bread (because I could spend a year making posts about konbini food alone).
1. Yakisoba roll (たっぷり焼きそばロール)
Ok…I’ll say it.
Worms in a bun.
That’s what it looks like right?
Well thankfully it’s not that – it’s yakisoba (stir-fried buckwheat noodles + sauce + veggies) in a bun. I feel like the bun adds nothing here other than being an edible bowl, which I’m totally fine with.
2. Curry Bread (ビーフカレーパン)
Up there with the yakisoba roll as a Japanese lunchtime staple. It’s curry wrapped in dough, breadcrumbed and deep-fried…so of course it’s delicious. This being a konbini (コンビニ) = convenience store variety, it’s not amazing (and doesn’t compare to the fresh stuff I’ve had), but still good.
2. Sugar Margarine Lunch Pack (ランチパック、シュガーマーガリン)
Margarine + sugar sandwiches. That’s all it is.
I don’t know what I expected, it’s pretty gross.
