    Congratulations, does that mean you are feeling better?
    Got a sour lemon candy in the mail today and some fab fabrics, yay!

    Got my package too – lots of wonderful twill tapes and such cool french recipe fabric (plus the fun candies). THANK YOU!!

    I’ll bet it was! I remember all the unusual baked goods in Japan very well. When I lived there I was pretty adventurous about trying them, and my favorite and the one I still crave on occasion was the walnut-and-camembert roll. Yum. Never tried Cubyrop though…

    Food in bread thing is quite usual for Japanese.
    I am very surprised that many people find them disguisting and I still don’t understand why they think it’s wrong. Bread and buns in Japan are very fresh and tasty. I love them! When you buy them they put them in plastic bags not to get contaminated. People here are extremely sensitive about food sanitation.

    Sorry, I gotta admit I’ve tried the hotdog bun and I am just not a fan, perhaps because I just don’t like hot dogs much. They sell them at a Korean bakery near my parent’s home too and my dad gets them regularly.

    My kids have that sausage bun for breakfast all the time :)

    Good for you! It didn’t look that bad. I might have to run to 7-11 for a hot dog now.

    Hi Mariko,
    Me again. I’m chinese and i love chinese bakery. The hot dog buns are very safe to eat and quite yummy. Some other chinese buns i recommend would be the curry bun, pineapple coconut bun, bbq pork bun, there are also buns with fried pork and seaweed. So awesome!!!
    I guess other people may find them a bit weird but the sausage buns are one of the most popular out there. Another pastry you should also try is egg tart custard pie. They are small and have yellow middles. They are positively yummy!!!!
    Have fun with your taste buds. I always have them with Hong Kong milk tea.

    Ooooh, I love those! Fubonn has some really cool things to munch on :-)

    Thank gawd you didn’t leave us in suspense.
    I would try almost any chinese bun-type item. Have yet to try a bad one. xox Kay

    Well this is one of the shortest entries ever- the hot-dog thing must have had some kind of effect on you :) Lovely things at superbuzzy lately!

    You’re much braver than I am! I always see those hot dog breads (or fried egg breads, or tuna breads, or mayo breads) in the combini, unrefrigerated, and I just can’t stomach the thought…interesting to know that it was actually quite delicious!

    Hello Mariko,
    I am actually quite surprised Peter was scared of the hot dog bun! Its so common here in Singapore that its hard to imagine people thinking it rare! They serve mini-versions of these at our tea breaks during the training sessions we conduct sometimes and one day, if I can sneak the camera pass my boss (maybe when she’s out of the room or looking the other way), I will take a photo of it, just to let you see.

    my boyfriend and i went to his first korean restaurant ever a few weeks ago, and he was surprised to see potato salad in one of the little side dishes. i said it was quite common and he didn’t believe me.
    i went grocery shopping the other day, and i bought him a “potato salad in bun” and a “potato salad donut”.
