refreshing

Untitled Hankyu Department Store in Umeda is having an Asian Fair.

All sorts of foods and knick-knacks from countries like Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Vietnam.

I recently tried this...called Ku-lon in Japanese, the kanji (chinese characters) translated to English is Kowloon.

The dessert is made by a shop called Hong Kong Sweets Ka Ka, apparently a Japanese company with shops in Tokyo.

I'm glad I tried this, I don't know if they actually have a dessert like this in Hong Kong but it was so refreshing and hit the spot on such a hot and humid day....540 yen (tax included).

this is funny....I have that trypophobia (sp.?), fear of holes/round balls so that top picture freaks me out, but the bottom looks so delicious and refreshing!

they look really cute and refreshing but the blueberry one...it reminds me of a fish eyeball!

no, it's more a cluster of uniform round/holes....like a patch of frog eggs, seed in a cut papaya, lotus flower seed pods, ewwww, just typing this is making my skin crawl. LOL.
When I walk along the Ala Wai canal, on a still day when the water is smooth, all the tilapia stick their mouths out of the water so there is a group of "holes" in the water. Creepy!
you should google it and see all the creepy pictures!

Funny; the Missus doesn't care for kanten Kat.....I think it's a texture thing. Though she seems ok with other stuff made from agar...

I remember that clear dessert you guys tried (sorry I forgot where you tried it), Kirk, and she didn't care for it, yeah?!

Take care!
