A long night journey and a lack of local bars and restaurants, that is what pushed us a couple of times to get some fast food. If it was possible, we were selecting local restaurants and local vendors but sometimes we had to grab something from big chains.
Have you ever heard about Desayuno Mexicano – literally a Mexican breakfast? About a hearty and warm morning meal?
This traditional Mexican dish is so delicious, so wonderful in its taste and so healthy. Prepared from perfectly ripe avocados, fresh tomatoes, onion, pepper and so aromatic coriander. Try our recipe!
Egyptian cuisine means also mezzes. A lot of them, colorful, aromatic, varied and healthy. Mezze is a selection of small dishes served as snacks. They are extremely popular in Balkans, Greece and their neighbors, in some parts of Asia and also in Arab countries.
So many flavors, so many aromas, so refreshing, and so different. Bitter, sweet, spicy, pungent and much more. To that add different colors and texture. Red, green black, green, golden,… Fresh and dried. In leaves, roots, seeds and from the plant’s pollen.
Colorful morning and night markets; street food stalls; local vendors; ice cream sold from a bicycle; grilled food from in front of the owner's house - that is what makes local street food so unique. Add to it local flavors and freshness and you will get a perfect mix.
Koyasan is famous not only for monasteries but also for sweets. And that was also the place where we had enough time to visit local shops with wagashi. Sophisticated in their design, beautiful and colorful.

In my previous post I was writing about Japanese sweets, that are basing mainly on Azuki beans. Today, I want to show you and explain some other local wagashi, that we had during our stay. And that time, don’t worry, ‘anko’ won’t be dominant! ;)
Stuffed steamed rice wrapped in a nori leaf - a healthy snack, that was always eaten with curiosity. What would the next bite reveal?
Being in Japan and not eating the original Japanese tofu would be impossible for me. Without any doubt you can get tofu at yours, but that’s not the same thing. Soft, hard and freeze-dried...
Have you ever heard about gyoza? About Japanese dumplings with a delicious finely chopped stuffing? So what is that exactly?
When I think about the Japanese cuisine, what comes to my mind is rice, seaweeds, sushi and of course mushrooms. Plenty of different mushrooms, served in different ways, with different flavors and textures.
Do you like dried fruits? I do. Lovely, naturally sweet, full of aroma, both chewy and crispy. And if eaten in their country of origin they taste much, much better. Dried figs, walnuts, dates,…
One of traditional and loved sweets in Lebanon is halva. And believe me – it is really good and worth trying, even if you do not like sweets very much. Well, yes, it is sweet. It is even very sweet, but also delicious.
Manouche is a kind of a pizza on a thin base. It is topped with either zaatar or with any kind of Lebanese cheese or with minced meat.
Have you ever heard about zaatar? Do you know what is that and what could you use it for? If you are curious about it, read it!
You know it very well, and probably like it even more. But how does it look like in Japan? Where to buy it? Where to eat? When to eat? And what is in it? Fish? Vegetables? Something else?
