I don’t consider myself particularly culturally informed about what traditional Chinese New Year festivities should be, but I figured CNY should be something that I celebrate.
…by picking up supplies at a Japanese grocery store. xD
So on a Saturday night, we ventured out to the suburbs to buy fish balls and other ingredients for hotpot.
But, while we were there, we tried some of the food the offered in the food courts. Nothing spectacular, but it made the grocery shopping more enjoyable.
I did try a few things for the first time.
Natto, which is a type of fermented soybean, is apparently eaten as a side to whatever main course you’re having, but I wouldn’t mind just eating it and a bowl of rice.
Ray got a gabatto burger.
The patty in this burger is some type of ground meat mix. Can’t remember what was in it exactly. But, it had a little bit more flavor and moisture than your traditional burger that’s not Shake Shack (Shake Shack has become my gold standard of burgers).
