Sushi Mura (restaurant review)

I’ve been there 3 times now. The first time I went, I loved it. It was relatively cheap, food was delicious, well plated and the servers were attentive. The second time I went, the service was slightly lacking. The 3rd time I went (today) was NOT charming at all. I’ve never had to wait 55 minutes for take out just to find out our order was taken by some other guy 1 minute before we asked the waitress, “where’s our take out?” Why didn’t she check the bill? And during our wait, we were never once offered tea of any sort. And when my dad asked for a cup of tea (albeit near the beginning of our wait), the nerve of the waitress to tell my dad twice, “you have to return the cup”. Who in the world would steal a plastic cup?

And it only took them 7 minutes to recreate our order. So what took so long? I know you’re busy, but 55 minutes for take out is unheard of. It’s no wonder they give you a 5% discount if you call 2 hours in advance for take out or 10% discount if you let them know 1 day in advance….. It seems like they need it.

I have no complaints about the chefs, but “some” of the waitresses simply weren’t very pleasant.

I hope my next visit there won’t be so unpleasant.

HIGHLIGHT: The crazy rabbit roll is delicious (I’d go back to the restaurant just for this roll alone)

I don’t particularly like their spider rolls and tonkatsu, but it’s not like the food’s bad, just not particularly spectacular. Everything else I’ve had so far, is up to standard in my opinion.

Anyways, I heard their volcano roll is really good, but I haven’t tried it yet.

Kracie Donut Candy Set (Japan)

If only they still made the original donut candy set where you can make around 9 mini donuts :( oh well…

When you’re making them, make sure it’s on a flat and clear surface. I regret making them on my bed. My bed sheets smelled like vanilla after and I had to immediately wash them.

The candies this time tastes surprisingly good. However, since the vanilla dough smelled like playdoh after I added water to it… I only tasted a tiny bit of each of the mini donuts and threw them out after. I made the tiny mister donut bag myself ^^

Tetris Gummy Candy (Japan)

I saw these at a Family Mart in a train station in Japan for about $1.30 (?) they’re not the best tasting gummy candy in the world … But hey… It’s Tetris XD However, like Micaela, a YouTube J-vlogger said, too bad it’s not hard candy… It’s just not the same :P

Kracie Happy Kitchen Hamburger and Fries Candy Set

It’s a fun candy kit that you can play with. The burgers were surprisingly good. The meat patty actually smell and taste like cheap meat, which is sort of disturbing. The fries taste like stale bread a whee bit. The coke is disgustingly similar to coke candy gone bad :P I’d buy it just for fun though ^^

Fried Maple Leaves (Japan/ fast food)

Fried maple leaves at Minoh Park are AWESOME! They remind me of Chinese donuts a whee bit. They’re especially delicious after a nice hike around the park. I bet the hike would have been even more enjoyable if we went during Autumn. My friend and I sighted some Deers while we were there. Too bad we didn’t see any wild monkeys :P but yeah… 400 yen for a decent amount of maple leaves ^^ it’s yummy! And the Japanese couple that sold it to us were such a sweet, nice and cute couple

Neapolitan Gari Gari (Japan/ junk food)

It’s disgusting!! The worst gari gari I’ve ever tried. So disgusting I only had a few bites before I decided to chuck it in the sink. The soup flavored one at least tasted like corn soup… But this flavor is just painfully weird. Tomato and pasta flavor does not mesh well as a Popsicle. YUcK!

It’s just a terrible gimmick of a flavor.

Kin no torikara (Japan/ Fast food review)

It’s DELICIOUS!! In my humble opinion, I like it much better than McDonald’s nuggets and KFC. (But that’s just me… Some people like KFC more… It’s a different kind of fried chicken). Anyways, give it a try if you ever pass by one of their stalls while you’re in Japan ^^

~$3 for a small bag… Well worth the try…
