I was in my local grocery store, when walking down one of the aisles I discovered that they had a section with Japanese food items. I started looking at what was there, and lo and behold they had POCKY! I said to myself, "Wow, it's pocky!" Believe me, this was an unusual find in this particular store. And what's more, they had disposable chop-sticks! My Azumanga fan-dom kicked in, and I bought both.

I tried the chop-sticks with a rice dish, but only managed to get through about half of it before reverting back to a fork. Still, an experience. And I soon discovered that pocky can be quite addicting.

Anyone else with interesting Japanese food experiences?

Gleo:

One of these days, when I have money, I'll have to bring you out to Nagoya's in Baton Rouge.  All-you-can-eat sushi buffet...  And some pretty good sushi too... Wink

Though that does hinge on whether you can eat fish.  Yes, they do have fully cooked rolls if you don't feel brave enough too.

And, again, when I have money...

With rice, it definitely helps to have the right kind of rice ... nice and sticky, much easier to eat with chop sticks.

We've been too two H-Marts in the area and have gotten all kinds of tasty Japanese goodies.
