Well...It's me, Alien.
Green tea brought Alien a spritual state of nothingless.
Alien went to Mitsuwa, a Japanese supermarket in Chicago suburban area.
Alien like Japanese things. Excited.
Although books there are a bit pricey, this book store is a rare place to get Japanese books.
Alien stayed here for long since Alien like books!
Well, let's go to grossary shopping.
This would be a very usual supermarket for people living in Japan.
Many kinds of soy sauce.
Alien can't find such kinds in American supermarkets.
Tons of rice.
Alien eat rice every day.
Alien found Gobo (Burdock roots). Alien know it is good!
Alien can't find Gobo in American supermarkets.
Alien got lost in a forest of gobo.
Paper-thin sliced beef, which is race in American supermarkets.
Alien found sushi.
Americans like sushi!
Many kinds of sushi rolls.
Alien read somewhere that American-style sushi rolls put sea weeds inside since Americans don't like to eat black things.
Japanese breads are very fluffy. Love them all.
Alien like breads in America too, but they are not fluffy or sticky like Japanese breads.
Alien got a bit tired.
Mitsuwa has a food court.
Ramen, Japanese dishes, etc.
Alien already had lunch on that day, so Alien decided to have tea.
They must offer drinks Alien can't have in American cafes.
Iced macha and Macha Latte...
Huuu It is hard to pick...both sound so good...
Let's have both.
That's Alien's way.
Let's try Macha Latte.
Sweet milk with bitter but sweet flavor of macha. Yum yum.
Let's try Iced Macha.
This was unsweeten. Clear taste of macha. Yum yum.
Everything is a bit pricey but Alien can find almost anything Alien need to make Japanese dishes. A great place for Alien.
Tonight, Alien am going to cook Gobo.
