The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Japanese eye candy

February 12th, 2009  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  1 Comment

My friend Amy has started an awesome food blog while living in Japan. It’s early days, but already there are posts on the wonderfully eccentric goodies she’s found in Osaka.

So far, I love the Hotel Mickey Cookies (see above) and the proliferation of strange KitKat flavours – such as Daigaku Imo (university sweet potato – no, really!). Although, I guess nothing can be as weird as merging ice cream with ramen.

    some other crazy flavours of kit kat i have seen over the past few seasons:

    – soy sauce
    – potato (not sweet potato… just regular spud)
    – red bean
    – corn
    – roasted green tea (houjicha)
    – soy bean flour (kinako)
    – watermelon

    (of course there are lots of regular but “limited edition” sweet ones too… blueberry, tiramisu, sugarcane etc)

    … i really should start collecting these!

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
