Yesterday was a Japanese holiday. I am not sure what holiday it was, but it seems like there is always a holiday going on. At the local grocery store they had several food booths set up giving samples and selling special treats.
I branched out and tried some minced pork wrapped foods and dips. I did refrain from trying the fried balls that looked so ever good until you realize there is octopus inside. While I am trying new things here, I am not quite ready for octopus yet.
The very last booth was making pancakes in the shape of a fish with different fillings. One was a vanilla custard, one was chocolate and the last one was bean paste (a very common filling inside desserts and breads).
I decided to be a nice mom and get Sami & Chris one as a special treat. They really liked them and can't wait to have "fish pancakes" again.
