ChaCha.com recently put together a list of some of the most unique fast foods available around the globe.
This was of particular interest to me because a couple of their choices were from Japan: McDonald’s Ebi-Fillet — that’s shrimp — and Burger King’s Spam and Egg Sandwich (pictured on the left).
I’m proud to say I didn’t frequent any fast food restaurants during my stay, so I didn’t notice these options.
What did strike me as slightly odd was the traditional breakfast in Japan:
White rice. A green salad. A thin, bland yogurt. And green tea.
Now, I might eat this for lunch if my main meal was delivered to the wrong table, but it’s not the flavor profile that I crave for breakfast. But my hotel offered it, and I ate it. When in Rome…
(I did break down and add sweetener to the tea. And to their credit, the natives didn’t wince too hard when I did.)
