The wasabi one was pretty interesting, but I really love it. At first, the wasabi flavor really hit me, and I was just waiting for it to get hot, but it never did. It's like being able to enjoy lots of wasabi without feeling the pain. It almost tasted like it had a hint of mint too.
When I tried the miso flavored KitKat, I actually couldn't taste much of the miso. Nevertheless, it was still good to me. My husband could taste a lot of the miso. Maybe my taste buds were off that day...
Can't wait to get my hands on more.

Coming home from our honeymoon, my husband and I were greeted with a bunch of plants on our doorstep. My dad had decided to unload some of his plants. Lucky for us, he gave us 2 pepper plants. It's very pretty too, since some of the peppers are purple and orange. Not your typical red or green peppers.
A few nights later I tried making the dish again, except the correct way. I did not soak it in chili sauce twice. Practice definitely makes perfect. The second try was a lot better. I was able to understand how to grill the tofu a little better without burning it.

Seriously, the crabs were huge! They barely fit on the plate and it took everyone about an hour just to finish one. Because they were so fresh, the shell was pretty easy to crack. It tasted so good, I barely needed the melted butter to dip it in.
You know everyone is happy when there is little talking, and more shell cracking. The only thing that would've made that night better was if my husband was able to make it that night.

Every so often, we crave authentic ramen. So far we found some good ramen houses, but they're over the bay and not as close to us as we'd like. A few months back we found out about Ajisen Ramen. It turns out that Ajisen is a pretty large chain in Japan. We figured since it's a chain, maybe it would taste more authentic than the other restaurants we've been to. So far, we really like this place. Their bowls are pretty large, and it's almost always packed when we go.
Spicy Pork Ramen. They are not kidding when they say spicy. That pile you see of orange/red is all spice! It's very flavorful if you can handle the heat. I could only handle one spoonful, but my husband finished it all. Just be prepared to have a runny nose.
Karage. Seriously, this appetizer was humongous, but very delicious.
Ajisen Ramen. This is one of my favorites.
