Break Out Stormtrooper Rations! Curry! Sumo Soup! Weird Potato Fries! Girls With Pink Hair!
Yeah, if you hadn't guessed it, Foodies Go Local is at Tokyo Comic Con. It is so boring I can't even... ha ha ha! No it isn't. It roooooooocks! In-between shmoozing with Matts Madsen (ok, we saw him at a long distance: he loves sukiyaki) and chowing on down on sushi with Steve 'The Woz' Wozniak (Ok, a friend of a Japanese dude dressed as Thor swore this is true) we hit the food court big time to try the food at Tokyo Comic Con.
I told you, I told you, they eat curry rice. Despite evidence to the contrary.
Anyway, as we say Tokyo Comic Con is pretty neat. The Editor-in-Chief wishes to announce, categorically, that mochimochi potato fries are the thing with blue ladies, and pink ozoni is all the rage with the pink-haired crowd:
Mochi-mochi potato is clearly not for those counting calories.
The lady above admitted that her pink hair was chosen to match the ozoni soup, while the forestry representative below favored Shizuoka fried chicken. How's that for Comic Con food commitment?
May I get me some sumo soup? It's from my old sumo wrestler favorite Terao's stable btw, chanko nabe. If you don't like it, they throw you through the roof.
This is Ms Rose. She recommends eating whatever you fancy. Or else... Actually, like everyone at Tokyo Comic Con Rose was super friendly.
Soba buckwheat galettes with raclette cheese were selling like, er, hot cakes.
The Shizuoka chicken nugget lady says hi.
