Label reads: “The best thing you put in your
mouth since your girlfriend left you.”
But I’m no Japanese expert
I know one pic does not a post make, but this one is special, dear to my heart even. This bottle of mystery liquid came all the way from Tokyo, Japan….off the shelf of a AM/PM convenience store (Konbini).
A friend sent it to me as a souvenir of his recent trip overseas.
A few years ago, the same friend traveled with me to Tokyo after university graduation. It was an awsome trip, and what was the only thing I brought home from this magical land 1000’s of miles away for me to forever remember it by? ….Salad dressing. A bottle similar to the one pictured here.
Yes, it IS that good. I can’t read all the ingredients in Japanese, but it tastes like a mixture of mayo, sesame, onions, maybe miso or soy, and rice vinegar. Like a good woman that brings out the best in a man, this sauce makes rice dishes and vegies taste glorious.
I am from the school of “stock your cupboards with condiments, and ye shall prosper”, and oh baby this sauce has made me the richest and happiest man in the world.
